Higher Blends Infrastructure Incentive Program
Biofuels, which contribute to energy security, reduce air pollution, and support rural economic development, are an important market for the U.S.
Approximately 96 percent of the vehicles on the road today, roughly 290 million, are legally approved to use E15. E15 is fully approved for use in cars, SUVs, pickups, vans, or other light duty vehicles manufactured after the year 2000. In addition, there are more than 22 million flex fuel vehicles (FFVs) on the road in the United States, roughly 8 percent of all vehicles, that can use ethanol blends up to E85. All diesel vehicles can operate on B20.
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. Expanded use of higher blends of biofuels also boosts the availability of skilled jobs with good wages in rural communities and bolsters the employment of U.S. military veterans.
Owners of transportation fueling and fuel distribution facilities located in the United States and its territories may apply for this program. Eligible entities would include: fueling stations, convenience stores, hypermarket retailer fueling stations, fleet facilities (including automotive, freight, rail and marine), and similar entities with equivalent capital investments, as well as fuel/biodiesel terminal operations, midstream operations, and heating oil distribution facilities or equivalent entities.
