Biodiesel Production Incentive

Expired: 12/31/2015

The Missouri Department of Agriculture (Department) manages the Missouri Qualified Biodiesel Producer Incentive Fund, which provides monthly grants to qualified Missouri biodiesel producers who are actively engaged in agricultural production for commercial purposes and own at least 51% of the production facility. The grants are available for a maximum of 60 months at a rate of $0.30 per gallon for the first 15 million gallons and $0.10 per gallon for the next 15 million gallons of biodiesel produced each fiscal year from feedstock originating in Missouri, up to $6 million per producer per fiscal year. Biodiesel must meet ASTM D6751 or subsequent specifications. However, qualified biodiesel producers receiving grants prior to December 31, 2009, continue to be eligible for the remainder of the original 60 month period. For more information, please see the Missouri Biodiesel Producer Incentive Fund page. (Reference Missouri Revised Statutes 142.031)
