The Iowa Renewable Fuels Association (IRFA) has released an online version of an industry scrapbook that illustrates how far the renewable fuels industry has come and how profound its impact on Iowa has been over the past decade. “Progress and Prosperity: A Look Into Iowa’s Renewable Fuels Industry,” provides anecdotes and fact-based information on the vast accomplishments and benefits of Iowa’s renewable fuels industry.
“The renewable fuels industry has a great story to tell and we hope the IRFA scrapbook helps remind people just what a difference ethanol and biodiesel have made for Iowa,” said IRFA Executive Director Monte Shaw. “Behind each plant is a person, an idea, and a story that shines a spotlight on the renewable fuels industry’s ability to positively impact the individuals, neighborhoods, and communities of the people of Iowa.”
The book was created as part of IRFA’s 10th Anniversary celebration. It is available online or in hard copy by contacting the IRFA. The ethanol and biodiesel plants recognized in the book include: Absolute Energy, Ag Processing (AGP), Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), Big River Resources, Corn, LP, Fiberight, Golden Grain Energy, Green Plains Renewable Energy, Homeland Energy Solutions, Iowa Renewable Energy, Lincolnway Energy, Little Sioux Corn Processors, Platinum Ethanol, Plymouth Energy, POET Biorefining – Coon Rapids, Quad County Corn Processors, Renewable Energy Group (REG), Siouxland Energy and Livestock, Southwest Iowa Renewable Energy (SIRE), Western Dubuque Biodiesel, and Western Iowa Energy.
