MARCUS - Recently, Marcus Mayor Darrel Downs announced that the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association Mobile Education Trailer would be coming to Marcus during RAGBRAI.

According to Downs the Mobile Education Trailer is one of the best marketing tools in promoting the Ethanol Industry.

The trailer will arrive and be set-up in Marcus on Saturday, July 21 and will be ready to be utilized on Sunday, June 22 for the thousands of people expected to be traveling through Marcus to Cherokee on the annual RAGBRAI.

Downs commented, "It was quite a feat, to get the trailer here."

"It's a walk-through exhibit that shows you the process of how Ethanol is produced," said Downs.

"We're real excited about it coming to Marcus," he added. "The City of Marcus and members of Cherokee County Corn Growers are committed to the education of Ethanol and Biodiesel."

The Mobile Education Trailer, which is more like a converted mobile home than a trailer, will be located on the south end of Main Street in downtown Marcus.

The Iowa Renewable Fuels Association brings together Iowa ethanol and biodiesel producers to foster the development and growth of the state's renewable fuels industry through education, promotion and infrastructure development.

Iowa Renewable Fuels Association is committed to making Iowa a leader in producing renewable fuels and value-added co-products.
