JOHNSTON, IOWA – The Iowa Renewable Fuels Association (IRFA) is excited to announce Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds is once again joining the Iowa Renewable Fuels Summit on January 25.

“It is critical that Iowa, the nation’s leader in ethanol and biodiesel production, promotes this vital industry,” said Gov. Reynolds. “We must control our own destiny through pro-growth policies and not rely on the federal government to do so. I look forward to attending the Summit and sharing my vision for the future of renewable fuels in our state and across the country.”

IRFA Executive Director Monte Shaw said at a time when so much is at stake for biofuel producers, a champion like Reynolds is needed.

“Whether we are talking about growing biofuel use here in Iowa or expanding consumer access to higher blends around the country, Governor Reynolds has been at the tip of the spear fighting for us,” Shaw said. “She has led many initiatives to expand market opportunities and support Iowa biofuels because she understands how crucial biofuels are to Iowa’s prosperity.”

The Iowa Renewable Fuels Summit is taking place on January 25 at the Community Choice Convention Center at the Iowa Events Center. Attendance is free and open to the public, but registration is required. To register to attend and learn more, visit
