The Conference & Expo

Produced by BBI International and Ethanol Producer Magazine
Live and Online on Demand Later

Now in its 36th year, BBI International is excited to announce the FEW is going virtual in 2020! The International Fuel Ethanol Workshop & Expo will be held live via webcast September 15-17, 2020. What’s more, it will be recorded and available on-demand for anyone who missed any of the live sessions, and the virtual Exhibit Hall will remain open for two weeks so the participants may continue to visit the exhibit booths.

The FEW provides the global ethanol industry with cutting-edge content and unparalleled networking opportunities in a dynamic business-to-business environment. The FEW is the largest, longest running ethanol conference in the world—and the only event powered by Ethanol Producer Magazine.

From its inception, the mission of the event has remained constant: The FEW delivers timely presentations with a strong focus on commercial-scale ethanol production – from quality control and yield maximization to regulatory compliance and fiscal management. The FEW is also the ethanol industry’s premier forum for unveiling new technologies and research findings. The program extensively covers cellulosic ethanol while remaining committed to optimizing existing grain ethanol operations.

The 2020 FEW program is segmented into three concurrent tracks:

Track 1: Production & Operations
Track 2: Leadership & Financial Management
Track 3: Coproducts & Product Diversification
