Biorefinery, Renewable Chemical, and Biobased Product Manufacturing Assistance Program

 

As the call for increased production of homegrown renewable fuels, chemicals, and biobased products has grown, so has the need to develop and produce them.  USDA Rural Development offers opportunities to producers to develop and manufacture such products through the Biorefinery, Renewable Chemical, and Biobased Product Manufacturing Assistance Program. The program provides loan guarantees for the development, construction, and retrofitting of commercial-scale facilities.

The Biorefinery, Renewable Chemical, and Biobased Product Manufacturing Assistance Program was established to assist in the development of new and emerging technologies for the development of advanced biofuels and aims to accomplish the following:

  • Increase the energy independence of the United States
  • Promote resource conservation, public health, and the environment
  • Diversify markets for agricultural and forestry products and agricultural waste materials
  • Create jobs and enhance economic development in rural America

 

Below are some helpful links that outline the program requirements and offer information about how to apply for the program.
