Ethanol and Biobutanol Production Incentive

Qualified and licensed ethanol and biobutanol producers are eligible for a $0.20 per gallon production incentive for ethanol and biobutanol that is fully distilled and produced in South Dakota. Ethanol must also be denatured, 99% pure, distilled from cereal grains, and blended with gasoline to create an ethanol blend. In addition, the producer must have produced ethanol on or before December 31, 2006, to be eligible. Annual production incentives paid to one facility may not exceed $1 million. Cumulative annual production incentives paid out to all facilities may not exceed $7 million per year. Funds are apportioned each month based on the claims submitted and the total funds available. This incentive expires on July 1, 2022. (Reference South Dakota Statutes 10-47B-162 and 10-47B-163)
