irfaThe Iowa Renewable Fuels Association has teamed up with legendary radio station WHO in Des Moines to power its Crystal Studio at the Iowa State Fair from August 13-23 using B20 biodiesel.

This IRFA press release says the diesel generators for the studio have been running on bodiesel during the fair since 2006:

“IRFA is proud to help continue the biodiesel tradition of WHO radio and the Iowa State Fair,” said Monte Shaw, Executive Director of IRFA. “With the largest farm audience in Iowa, WHO and the Iowa State Fair are the perfect partners to demonstrate the power and performance of Iowa-produced B20. As farmers begin the process of ordering fuel for the harvest, we want to encourage them to buy biodiesel, a clean, reliable alternative for the fall harvest season and beyond.”

IRFA is also airing “buy biodiesel” ads on WHO during the fair, and the green energy group’s members will also conduct on-air interviews to educate the public about the benefits of biodiesel.
