Governor Eric Greitens will be speaking at the Carnahan Memorial Garden in Jefferson City Thursday to announce the release of new funds for Missouri’s Biodiesel program.
The state will be releasing the $4 million restriction on Biodiesel for Missouri Biodiesel producers and $65,000 for the Office of the Military Advocate.
“We’re proud to fight for Missouri’s often-forgotten rural communities and farmers,” Greitens said. “These long-promised funds will help farmers and workers in rural communities across the state.”
Missouri is the second largest Biodiesel producer in the nation, producing nearly 200 million gallons in eight production facilities. Since 2007, Biodiesel has supported almost 2,500 jobs in the state.
Greitens will be hosting an event to announce the newly released funds. More information is below:
