The National Corn Growers Association reminds potential attendees that preregistration for the 2014 Corn Utilization and Technology Conference ends on May 25. The biennial event will be held June 2-4 in Louisville, Ky., and those unable to meet the May 25 deadline will be able to register onsite. The 2014 CUTC will feature the cutting-edge technologies and new uses that continually improve and dynamically change the corn industry with a focus on wet and dry milling.
“As the conference approaches, it is exciting to see the number of people planning to attend and join in discussions that will lead our industry forward,” said NCGA Research and Business Development Action Team Chair Tom Mueller. “CUTC is a must-attend event for many because it stands at the forefront of technology, fostering innovative ideas and the important networking connections necessary to move the industry forward.”
The conference session topics will address genetics, biotechnology, and grain quality. There will be additional sessions covering new technologies and products from wet and dry processing, enzyme technology, and products from biorefineries. Attendees can also expect to hear presentations on new starch uses, resistant starch and nutrition, biopolymers and higher valued products such as nutraceuticals
