Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds will discuss the many ways biofuels boost the state’s economy, protect the environment, and drive Iowa into the future at the 2019 Iowa Renewable Fuels Summit.
“Iowans play a tremendous role in America’s renewable fuel industry,” Governor Reynolds said. “Since the very beginning, we saw its unlimited potential and now our state leads the country in production. The ripple effect is incredible, especially when you consider renewable fuels supports nearly 47,000 Iowa jobs. That’s why I’m excited to address this year’s Summit attendees and share Iowa’s success story.”
Iowa Renewable Fuels Association (IRFA) Executive Director Monte Shaw said he looks forward to welcoming the newly-elected Governor back to the Summit.
“The 2019 Summit theme is ‘Get Energized!’,” Shaw said. “When it comes to Iowa biofuels, few are as energized as Governor Reynolds. Time and time again she has answered the call to fight for Iowa’s ethanol and biodiesel producers on a state and national level. We look forward to hearing from her and thanking her for all her hard work this past year to boost an industry that means so much for Iowa.”
The Summit is free to attend and open to the public. Registration is required. The last day to preregister is January 25, 2019 and you can do so here. The Summit will take place at the Meadows Conference Center at Prairie Meadows in Altoona, Iowa on Tuesday, January 29, 2019.
