Repowering Assistance Program (9004)

The Repowering Assistance Program provides payments to eligible biorefineries to replace fossil fuels used to produce heat or power to operate the biorefineries with renewable biomass. It provides reimbursement payments to help offset the costs associated with converting existing fossil fuel systems to renewable biomass fuel systems.

The program encourages the use of renewable biomass as a replacement fuel source for fossil fuels used to provide process heat or power in the operation of eligible biorefineries.

Applications for participating in this program for Fiscal Year 2012 will be accepted from February 2, 2012 through June 1, 2012. There is approximately $25 million to make payments to eligible biorefineries in Fiscal Year 2012.
