The company is looking to expand its biofuels holdings while also looking to refine glycerin for use in fragrances and other products.

    When we sat down to talk about issues with legislative leaders recently, I asked them their thoughts about state Treasurer Michael Fitzgerald’s proposal for Iowa to establish an Iowa Retirement Savings Plan that would be administered by his office.
