This is the 23rd Annual National Ethanol Conference, and the theme is Ethanol Strong: Empowering Dialogue to Grow Markets. The event will take place February 12-14, 2018 at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort Spa in San Antonio, TX.

The National Ethanol Conference is the most widely attended executive level conference for the ethanol industry. Since 1996, the Renewable Fuels Association’s NEC has been recognized as a preeminent conference for delivering accurate, timely information on marketing, legislative and regulatory issues facing the ethanol industry. With numerous networking opportunities, more business meetings are conducted and contacts made at this conference than any other ethanol conference. RFA expects more than 1,000 attendees at this year's event.

Marc will be discussing the hypocrisy surrounding the petroleum oil industry's attacks on ethanol. His session takes place on February 14th at 9:30AM.

"Valentine's Day is the perfect time for my love message to ethanol haters," said Marc Rauch. "Actually, I think that everyone will be quite surprised to learn that the oil industry has historically loved ethanol fuel, despite what they now say about ethanol. It'll be fun, lots of laughs, and I'll have the opportunity to share some important information."

Recently, Marc delivered four ethanol-related presentations in South Dakota in conjunction with the South Dakota Farmer's Union, Glacial Lakes Energy, and Lake Area Technical Institute. In 2016. Marc was a keynote speaker at the Australian National Biofuels Conference; he spoke (for the 2nd time) to a Congressional Ethanol Debriefing in Washington, DC; and he travelled to Taiwan to speak at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum on behalf of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Marc is often heard on broadcast radio shows, such as Bob Long's "AutoWorld" program, talking about alternative fuels and other automotive matters.

Marc has authored and published more than 100 articles and papers on the subject of alt fuels, including a 60+ page rebuttal of Robert Bryce's "Gusher Of Lies." Marc regularly takes on the best academics and media spokespeople that the oil industry can find to spread their misinformation about ethanol and other biofuels. Marc's blend of historical facts, humor, incisive industry analysis, and common sense reasoning has leveled all opponents.
