NEW ORLEANS — Today at the 21st Annual National Ethanol Conference (NEC), the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) released updated editions for two of its most popular publications: the Ethanol Industry Outlook and the Pocket Guide to Ethanol.

The Outlook and Pocket Guide provide readers with up-to-date statistics, insights and analysis on the critical issues facing the U.S. ethanol industry today. Readers are provided a comprehensive guide to key policies such as the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), background information on market activity, and the latest facts and figures regarding energy security, the environment, the economy, agriculture, and trade. For the first time, RFA is also releasing the Outlook divided into series of downloadable two-page “issue briefs.”

The Ethanol Industry Outlook offers a complete overview of each topic, along with detailed charts and graphs. The Pocket Guide to Ethanol contains the same information as the Outlook, but in a simpler, portable format that includes many myth-busting factoids about ethanol.

“As the information contained in these editions show, 2015 proved to be a banner year for the ethanol industry,” said RFA President and CEO Bob Dinneen. “These publications are meant to give readers the best overview possible of the industry so that they get a true sense of how far this industry has come and where it is expected to head next. With so much misinformation clouding the reality about ethanol, it is important for consumers, investors, and policymakers to be armed with the facts contained in these publications.”
