Gov. Terry Branstad announced Monday the beginning of a new program,  “Fueling our Future,” to expand Iowa production of mid-level biofuel blends.

This new program will redirect federal funding to supplement state funding in the production of more E-30 pumps at retailers around the state.

“This pilot program will provide Iowans with additional access to higher blends of ethanol and biodiesel, which will help our farmers, communities and economy in producing, processing and profiting locally,” Branstad said in a press release.

The new program is supported by the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, Iowa State University, and the Iowa Department of Transportation.
