North Dakota retailers getting $1.2M for biofuels equipment

BISMARCK, N.D. — North Dakota is getting $1.2 million in federal money to help retailers pay for biofuels equipment.

The money is through the federal Agriculture Department’s Biofuels Infrastructure Partnership. It reimburses retailers for the cost of such equipment as blender pumps and biofuel tanks.

The North Dakota Ethanol Council says the money is expected to fund 90 fuel dispensers for higher-level ethanol blends and 12 fuel tanks next year.

The state Commerce Department administers the program.
