Higher Blends Infrastructure Incentive Program (HBIIP)
To increase the sales and use of higher blends of ethanol and biodiesel by expanding the infrastructure for renewable fuels derived from U.S. agricultural products. The program is also intended to encourage a more comprehensive approach to market higher blends by sharing the costs related to building out biofuel-related infrastructure.
Applicant and/or Project Eligibility Requirements
Intended recipients include transportation fueling and distribution facilities, including fueling stations, convenience stores, hypermarket fueling stations, fleet facilities (including rail and marine), terminals, depots, etc.
Ethanol and biofuels may reduce the emissions intensity of fuels and may act as a bridge to 100% clean and renewable substitutes to oil and gas. The expansion of biofuel infrastructure, as facilitated by HBIIP, broadens the availability of renewable fuels like E15, E85, and B20, and helps American families save money at the pump while reducing carbon emissions and harmful tailpipe pollution
This program helps enable rural communities to be part of the transition to clean energy and clean fuels.
