The Renewable Fuels Infrastructure Board recently approved $1.518 million in grants for E85 and biodiesel retailers and terminal operators.
The money was granted to:
  • 15 E85 and 13 biodiesel retail dispensers, including the first biodiesel blender pump in Iowa
  • 12 tank wagons
  • Three biodiesel terminals
"Iowa retailers are to be congratulated for responding to their customers' request for E85 and biodiesel,” said Lucy Norton, Managing Director of the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association in a news release.
"And the RFIB made history by awarding a grant for the state's first biodiesel blender pump to be installed in Dubuque, which will provide truckers and motorists with a variety of biodiesel blend levels. The interest in renewable fuels infrastructure and demand for state grants exemplifies the success of this program and warrants additional funding to build greater access to renewable fuels produced here in Iowa.”
