Do you know a fuel retailer who has gone above and beyond marketing renewable fuels including ethanol and biodiesel? Then nominate him/her for the Renewable Fuels Marketing Awards. Awards are given for both the sales and promotion of biodiesel and ethanol and the awards are in their 10th year.
“Fuel retailers continue to take steps to make ethanol and biodiesel more available to Iowa customers and this award is an opportunity to recognize those who have shown leadership in promoting these renewable fuels and making them more available to customers,” said Bill Northey, Iowa Secretary of Agriculture.
Nominees will be judged on creative marketing efforts and can include such things as hosting special events highlighting their renewable fuels such as a pump promotion, creative and unique signage, advertising and efforts that dramatically increase renewable fuel availability – for example, adding a blender pump to the retail station that sells mid-level biodiesel and ethanol fuel blends.
