I wanted to take this opportunity to inform FAME Forum readers about a biodiesel panel I will be moderating June 29 at the 2011 Fuel Ethanol Workshop & Expo in Indianapolis. Specifically, the panel is about corn oil extracted from the backend of the ethanol process, and its growing application as a biodiesel feedstock.

The featured speakers include Dave Elsenbast, from Renewable Energy Group, who will give a presentation titled “Capturing Value through Inedible Corn Oil’s Growing Role in Meeting Biodiesel Demand.”

Also on the panel is Jake Ferris from my alma mater, Michigan State University, to discuss corn oil’s potential as biodiesel feedstock.

Ernie DeMartino from Biodiesel Experts International will present on enzymatic conversion of corn oil to biodiesel.

Finally, Kevin Kreisler of GreenShift Corp. will give his unique perspective on the markets and opportunities.

If you sign up and register for the show, I’ll be in Indianapolis Monday evening for the welcoming reception so I’ll look forward to meeting you there.
