June 9, 2022
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has provided a $1,307,544.34 grant to Nesika Energy of Scandia to help lower costs and support biofuel producers who faced unexpected market losses because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The funds are being made available through the Biofuel Producer Program,
which was created as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic
Security Act (CARES Act). USDA is making payments to the maintenance
and viability of a significant market for agricultural producers of products such as corn, soybean or biomass that supply biofuel production. These biofuel producers experienced unexpected market losses on a combined 3.7 billion gallons as a result of COVID–19.
