Biodiesel Coalition of Missouri announces inaugural biodiesel credit program
To recognize and celebrate National Biodiesel Day (March 18), the Biodiesel Coalition of Missouri is announcing a new County and Municipal Fleet Biodiesel Credit Program.
This annual program will be reserved for fleet operations located in Missouri that are utilizing biodiesel blends of B6 or higher.
“Missouri biodiesel production provides significant benefits to our state, local fuel supply and environment,” said James Greer, chairman of the Biodiesel Coalition of Missouri. “As a domestically produced, cleaner-burning substitute for petroleum diesel, biodiesel fuels both energy security and public health. With ample advantages, the Biodiesel Coalition of Missouri highly encourages fleets statewide to use biodiesel in each tank.”
The Biodiesel Coalition of Missouri is offering 25 cent per gallon up to $1,000 for county and municipal fleets that utilize B6 or higher biodiesel blends with receipts dated between April 1 and Oct. 1, 2023.
At the beginning of October, fleets may submit receipts at missouribiodiesel.org.
“Biodiesel provides numerous benefits to fleets including added lubricity, more efficient combustion and reduced wear and tear while maintaining performance,” said Matt Amick, executive director of the Biodiesel Coalition of Missouri. “This program is a great opportunity for county and municipal fleets to utilize Missouri-made fuel, support farmers and the local economy to provide cleaner air for all.”
The program is available to the first 25 applications.
Additional applications will be placed on a waiting list as receipts are reviewed and approved.
