DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Leaders of the ethanol and biodiesel industry will gather in suburban Des Moines this month to discuss the future of their fields.

The Iowa Renewable Fuels Summit and Trade Show will be held Jan. 30 at a conference center in Altoona.

Speakers will include Robert Gough, director of renewable fuels for the Oil Price Information Service, who is expected to analyze price trends through the next decade.

An economist with the Federal Reserve Bank in Kansas City is expected to discuss ethanol production and its use of corn in the future, while other speakers will highlight the impact of renewable fuels on Iowa's economy.

Iowa is a national leader in renewable fuels production, with 41 ethanol refineries and 12 biodiesel facilities.
