Benchmark Biodiesel recently received a grant from the Department of Agriculture as part of the USDA’s Higher Blend Infrastructure Investment Program. With this grant, Benchmark plans to add two biodiesel blender pump dispensers to their existing fuel terminal and distribution center in Columbus. Benchmark’s customers currently average a 10% biodiesel blend of fuel, and their goal is to double the amount of biodiesel in the fuel blend to 20% - all year round. This grant will be a critical element in helping them achieve this goal of 20% biodiesel blends.
