Cindy Zimmerman

Lake Erie Biofuels, doing business as HERO BX, has announced a partnership to manufacture and market biodiesel from the Iowa Renewable Energy plant in Washington, Iowa.

HERO BX Founder & CEO Samuel P. “Pat” Black, III, said, “It has been my ambition to expand the biodiesel expertise harvested from our flagship plant in Erie, PA, nationwide much like has already happened in Alabama and in New Hampshire. Now we will call Iowa our newest home.”

Black continued, “Accomplishing this milestone alongside IRE, a company that shares our commitment to quality, corporate culture, and core values, is key to achieving our joint vision. To be operating in Iowa — America’s epicenter for renewable energy — allows HERO BX to operate together with some of the pioneers who helped build this great industry.”

With over a decade of successful biodiesel production and marketing expertise behind them, HERO BX will apply its established business model to help capitalize on the new venture.
