To recognize and celebrate National Biodiesel Day, the Biodiesel Coalition of Missouri (BCM) 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, BCM chairman. “As a domestically produced, cleaner-burning substitute for petroleum diesel, biodiesel fuels both energy security and public health. With ample advantages, BCM highly encourages fleets statewide to use biodiesel in each tank.”
BCM is offering 25 cents/gallon up to $1,000 for county and municipal fleets that utilize B6 or higher biodiesel blends with receipts dated between April 1 – Oct. 1, 2023. At the beginning of Oct., 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, BCM executive director. “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. With any further questions, please contact Matt Amick at firstname.lastname@example.org.
