ACE DC ads feature people who have done well with the RFS 

Sioux Falls, SD (November 16, 2015) – As the Obama Administration nears a decision on final renewable volume obligations for 2014, 2015, and 2016 under the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), the American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) is promoting the success stories of two of its members in Washington, DC, in Morning Consult’s daily energy brief and the November 18 edition of The Washington Post.

The ad buy, featuring Delayne Johnson, CEO of Quad County Corn Processors, and Jeff Oestmann, CEO of East Kansas Agri-Energy, is part of ACE’s ongoing Power by People campaign which highlights people in the ethanol industry who are doing extraordinary things for the economy and the environment.

“ACE’s ads draw attention to the milestones that East Kansas Agri-Energy and Quad County Corn Processors have achieved in advanced and cellulosic biofuel thanks to the RFS, evidence that should help the Obama Administration stand strong on RFS blending volumes instead of caving into oil company demands,” said Brian Jennings, Executive Vice President of ACE.

Morning Consult’s daily energy brief is read by more than 41,000 subscribers inside and out of the Beltway and ACE’s advertisement runs today through November 23.  In addition, ACE is sponsoring a “cover wrap” print ad in copies of The Washington Post delivered to Capitol Hill on November 18.  The print ad is available on the ACE website.

During the month of November, ACE’s social media platforms are also showcasing people from all walks of life, including retailers and consumers, who benefit from a strong RFS using videos, infographics, and profiles on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram and featuring hashtags #RFSWorks, #PowerByPeople, and #RFSOnward.  You can access any of ACE’s social media accounts by clicking these individual links: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram
