Renewable Fuels Nebraska's (RFN) Executive Director, Mark Palmer addressed the Fuel Ethanol Workshop's (FEW) Ethanol 101 today.

Palmer's presentation focused on he genesis of the Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS).  The RFS is the most important federal policy that has been responsible for building a robust renewable fuels industry.

"The RFS was first passed 2005 and increased in 2007; what the RFS has done for rural communities has been nothing short of unreal.  This program, for example in Nebraska, has put our state on the map as the second largest producer nationally," Palmer said.

Nebraska is home to two dozen plants producing ethanol.  The most recent data produced by UNL suggests Nebraska’s capacity stands at 2,077 million gallons per year with actual production nearing 2,225 million gallons.
