Funding available for fuel retailers to install ethanol blender pumps
LINCOLN – The Nebraska Department of Environment and Energy (NDEE) is taking applications for a new grant program designed to encourage the installation of ethanol blender pumps across Nebraska. Expanding motorists’ access to higher blends of ethanol will increase usage of advance biofuels and offer benefits to the state’s environment. Funding for the grants is made possible through a three-year, $3 million award from the Nebraska Environmental Trust.
The Renewable Fuels Infrastructure Program, created by the Nebraska Legislature in 2019 and administered by NDEE, will make grants available to retail gas stations on a 50/50 cost share match for the acquisition of advanced biofuel blender pumps, fuel storage tanks, necessary infrastructure, marketing and education. The pumps will provide various blends of ethanol between E-10 and E-85 to motorists.
