Dave Sovereign, board president of the American Ethanol Coalition (ACE) and chairman of the board of directors at Golden Grain Energy in Mason City, Iowa, recently highlighted the critical importance of ethanol in a must-read guest column for Mason City’s Globe Gazette.
Sovereign emphasized that “companies like Summit Carbon Solutions have been developing new technology assisting ethanol plants to lay a foundation to lower their carbon intensity (CI) score and become a net-zero carbon fuel, something no other transportation fuel can claim.”
“Special interest groups will argue ethanol and other biofuels should cease to exist, ignoring all the industry does for our state. We should instead choose to invest in the core industries that stabilize Iowa’s economy.

Summit Carbon Solutions’ initiative will ensure that ethanol can continue as an economic pillar for decades,” Sovereign concluded.
