USDA Unveils Program to Boost Ethanol, Biodiesel
Program would build out E15 and E85 infrastructure
The Department of Agriculture is asking for input from biofuel stakeholders on a new incentives program to build out domestic ethanol and biodiesel infrastructure at retail gas stations, reports AgriPulse.
The move by USDA to create the Higher Blends Infrastructure Incentive Program (HBIIP) is an attempt to increase the sales of E15, gasoline blended with 15% ethanol, and B20 biodiesel, diesel blended with up to 20% biodiesel.
Speaking at the Iowa Renewable Fuels Summit in Altoona, IA, Thursday, Deputy Secretary of Agriculture Steve Censky said the goal is to build out the infrastructure.
