The Michigan Advanced Biofuels Coalition attended and sponsored the 2023 High Performance Low Carbon Liquid Fuels Summit in Speedway, Indiana, last week. The event was designed to foster an environment of industry expert collaboration and networking around ethanol, biodiesel, and the liquid fuels sector by bringing together stakeholders from across the fuels industry – from petroleum refiners to fuel marketers to biofuel producers – for open and informative discussions.
Attendees learned about the current and future state of liquid fuels in the local and global markets with petroleum refiners, agriculture representatives, engine manufacturers, retailers, biofuel stakeholders, and more expressing a bright future for low-carbon liquid fuels for decades to come.
Multiple panels highlighted the fact that even with advancements in other alternative fuels and technologies, liquid fuels like biodiesel, renewable diesel, and sustainable aviation fuel are projected to have an increasingly important role in the marketplace as companies, governments, and other organizations look to rapidly decarbonize their operations over the next three decades.
“Achieving immediate carbon reductions is possible with high performance low carbon advanced biofuels like biodiesel, renewable diesel, and sustainable aviation fuel,” said MiABC project director, Bailey Arnold. “By leveraging existing infrastructure and vehicle technologies, we can provide meaningful health and environmental benefits while supporting our local economy and farmers. It’s a win-win that will continue to pay dividends for decades to come,” Arnold added.
The High Performance Low Carbon Liquid Fuels Summit was hosted by the Indiana Corn Growers Association and Indiana Soybean Alliance at the Foyt Wine Vault and Dallara IndyCar Factory May 9 and 10 in Speedway, Indiana. Attendees included leaders and representatives from across the liquid fuels industry and beyond.
