Online resource created for reporters and businesses looking for biodiesel experts

Contact: Cassidy Walter

JOHNSTON, IOWA – Today the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association (IRFA) announced the launch of a resource designed to make finding Iowa’s biodiesel experts easier than a Google search.

The Iowa Biodiesel Speakers Bureau is now live on the IRFA website. It is a collection of biodiesel experts from across the state who share the goal of educating Iowans about the benefits of using biodiesel.

“It is our hope that the Iowa Biodiesel Speakers Bureau proves to be a helpful educational tool for anyone looking to learn more about biodiesel,” said Cassidy Walter, IRFA biodiesel lead. “Every year there are stories written or events taking place across the state where it would make sense for biodiesel to have a voice, but it can be difficult for organizations to find the right fit. The Speakers Bureau makes it as simple as a few clicks to find an expert.”

Anyone looking for a biodiesel expert for an event or interview can visit and search by area of expertise. Areas of expertise range from biodiesel production, to the impact of biodiesel on Iowa’s economy and environment, to biodiesel use in different vehicles, and more. By clicking on the photo of an expert, additional information will appear such as a professional biography and travel requirements.

To learn more about the Iowa Biodiesel Speakers Bureau or to request contact information for a speaker, please contact Cassidy Walter at or 515-252-6249.
