The Renewable Fuels Research, Development, and Demonstration Program is administered by the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity. The goals of this program are to promote and expand the use of biofuels such as ethanol and biodiesel as clean, renewable transportation fuels, and accelerate the commercialization of new renewable fuel technologies and products. The Biofuels Business Planning Grant Program, a subsidiary of the Illinois Renewable Fuels Research, Development, and Demonstration Program, provides grants of up to $25,000 for the development of business plans, engineering studies, design studies, permit applications, and legal work for potential new biofuel facilities in Illinois.
