It is always the defender of renewable fuels and its investors large or small. ACE is continually looking for new ways to enhance ethanol usage through public awareness campaigns or contacts they have within the various legislative groups whether its on the state or federal level. ACE is an unapologetic proponent of the virtues of renewable fuels for our country." Steve Roe (General Manager, Little Sioux Corn Processors)
"ACE is a close-knit organization, it's like family." Keith Kor (General Manager, Pinal Energy)
"As the ethanol industry organization started 27 years ago, ACE helped grassroots ethanol plants effectively communicate our story to state and federal officials, and the public, at a time when most plants were focused on building their plants and getting them into production. Patriot’s first visit to Capitol Hill was organized by ACE. Their actions inspire and challenge us all to take our message directly to stakeholders in our industry including, our DC congressional representatives, our communities, ethanol wholesalers and retailers and all the agricultural groups benefiting from our industry. ACE is a cost effective resource that we’re pleased to have on our team." Gene Griffith (CEO, Patriot Renewable Fuels)
"American Coalition for Ethanol is an informed and perceptive trade association that represents Ace Ethanol in all matters concerning ethanol. The trade association well represents us concerning products, co-products, legislative issues, marketing products, promotional activities and consumer acceptance. ACE is committed to defend our industry, our oxygen and our life, in preserving the Renewable Fuels Standards with the statutory RVO." Bob Sather (Chairman, Ace Ethanol)
