Ethanol Supporters at Obama Iowa Event

John Davis

‘Tis the season for political events, and a group of ethanol and biodiesel supporters are making sure they are front and center to drive home the message that the green fuel needs political support as well.

The Renewable Fuels Association’s (RFA) and Iowa Renewable Fuels Association’s grassroots effort, Americans Fueled with Pride, and in this specific case, Iowans Fueled with Pride, made sure to tell President Obama how much they appreciated his support of the green fuels when the commander-in-chief made political stops in Iowa. Several supporters from local ethanol and biodiesel companies attended Obama events in Boone and Council Bluffs wearing “fueled with pride” t-shirts and were able to shake hands with the president. Among them were representatives from Green Plains Renewable Energy, Midwest Grain Processors, Renewable Energy Group (REG) and Lincolnway Energy.
