The conference agenda begins with a welcome address by SCMA president Bob Pilcher. Other presenters include Jeannie Adame, environmental affairs for the South Carolina State Ports Authority; Paul Craufurd from ValvTect Marine Fuels on ethanol; the Renewable Fuels Association; and state Sen. Ray Cleary. The lineup for the second day of the conference includes Valerie Ziebron, Yamaha University; David Joyner, Clemson Extension; the Environmental Protection Agency; and Scott Meister, South Carolina Department of Natural Resources.
