Iowa Renewable Fuels Director Sees Postives With Fueling Our Future Program

 

Iowa Governor Terry Branstad announced this week the launching of the Fueling Our Future program.  The pilot program aims to expand E 30 and biodiesel availability. Iowa Renewable Fuels Executive Director Monte Shaw says by using $ $ 250,000 in federal funding combined with state dollars, they’re able to direct that to E 30 and biodiesel.

He says part of the aim of the initiative is to make more renewable fuel available to consumers who want to purchase it.

Shaw says the Governor believes that by providing Iowans with more access to higher blends of ethanol and biodiesel it will help farmers, communities and the economy in producing, processing and profiting locally.
