Biodiesel producers receive USDA advanced biofuel payments

By Ron Kotrba | May 17, 2013

Acting Under Secretary for Rural Development Doug O’Brien announced on May 16 payments to advanced biofuel producers in 38 states. A majority of the recipients are biodiesel producers. The funding, nearly $14 million, is provided through USDA’s Bioenergy Program for Advanced Biofuels established in the 2008 Farm Bill. Under this program, payments are made to eligible producers based on the amount of advanced biofuels produced from renewable biomass, other than corn kernel starch. USDA says more than 280 producers in 45 states and territories have received $192.5 million in payments since the program’s inception. Among other things it has supported the production of more than 3 billion gallons of advanced biofuel.
