RFA Hosts Media Call to Update on Coronavirus and Other Ethanol Industry Challenges

Coronavirus, with its deep impact on energy markets, is just the newest threat to the solvency of the U.S. ethanol industry, coming on top of the strong attacks ethanol producers have already taken from trade disputes and small refinery waivers. With several ethanol plant closures and idlings since late 2018, the industry is now facing the potential of even more jobs lost.

In a conference call this afternoon for news media, Renewable Fuels Association leaders will discuss the impact of these hits on ethanol producers and the communities and customers they serve.


  • Geoff Cooper, President and CEO, Renewable Fuels Association
  • Jeanne McCaherty, CEO, Guardian Energy Management; RFA Vice Chair
  • Randy Doyal, CEO, Al-Corn Clean Fuel; RFA Board Member
  • Scott Richman, Chief Economist, RFA
