Iowa Biodiesel to Power Super Bowl

AMES, Iowa (AP) -- Biodiesel produced by an Iowa company will fuel generators at the Super Bowl for the first time.
   Renewable Energy Group, Inc., said Wednesday that biodiesel refined at its Seneca, Ill. plant will power generators at MetLife Stadium during Sunday's game between the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos.
   The Ames-based company will supply up to 15,000 gallons of fuel, which will also power generators at events before the game. Its fuel is a clean-burning diesel replacement made from recycled cooking oil, greases and other materials.
   NFL environmental program director Jack Groh says the Super Bowl will feature a redundant system of generators to prevent a power failure, which marred last year's game. He says that required more fuel, and the NFL saw biodiesel as a way to limit the environmental impact.
