Iowa to continue biodiesel and ethanol blender pump program through 2016

May 1, 2016 |

In Iowa, the Iowa Legislature voted 94 – 0 in the House of Representatives and 49 – 0 in the Iowa Senate to secure another year of funding for the state’s very successful biodiesel and ethanol blender pump program, the Renewable Fuels Infrastructure Program (RFIP).

The IRFA recently reported interest amongst Iowa retailers in offering renewable fuels is at an all­-time high. The most recent Iowa Renewable Fuels Infrastructure Board meeting set records by awarding 68 projects with $3.2 million in state grants to upgrade infrastructure to offer higher blends of ethanol and biodiesel. With the passage of today’s legislation, the RFIP has secured funding through the state’s next fiscal year which ends June 30, 2017.
