October 30, 2016 |

In Virginia, the 12th E15 and E85 Biofuel outlet, under a Virginia Maryland BIP Grant prigra, opened at Sheetz in Manassas.

The USDA Biofuel Infrastructure Project Grant (USDA BIP Grant), has provided nearly $5 million to install ethanol refueling infrastructure in Virginia and Maryland. The Virginia-Maryland collaboration was the only multi-state proposal selected for award. The $5 million in federal funds is matched by $3 million from private sector partners.

The Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy is administering the Virginia-Maryland USDA BIP Grant with the assistance of Virginia Clean Cities at James Madison University. Partners in the program include two U.S. Department of Energy designated Clean Cities Coalitions in both states, as well as agricultural and energy offices of each state. Other project partners include state grain associations and agricultural partners, as well as the significant contributions from private sector infrastructure partners such as Sheetz and Protec Fuel.
