The Methanol Institute, with the Institute for the Analysis of Global Security and the U.S. Energy Security Council are holding the second Washington Methanol Policy Forum on March 18th, 2014, at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill.
This full-day event will kick-off with a panel of CEO’s representing the growing number of methanol producers opening plants in Louisiana, Texas and beyond. The event will provide the most up-to-date information on methanol fuel blending around the globe, with experts from China, Israel, Australia and Europe. Officials from the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency will join with technology innovators to discuss how to unlock our vehicles to methanol. Plus, there will be a special luncheon debate with members of the U.S. Energy Security Council — a “who’s who” of Washington policy leaders — on fuel choices.
Additionally, MI will hold a Board of Directors meeting following the Policy Forum on March 19th, also at the Hyatt Regency. A list of Policy Forum Speakers can be found below. For more information, or to register for the forum, please click here.
