Michigan governor Jennifer Granholm signed a biofuel bill into law last Friday. The law gives consumers incentives for buying ethanol by lowering the state tax on each gallon of ethanol-blended fuel by 7 cents (from 19 to 12 cents a gallon). Biodiesel received a cut (of three cents) to also bring taxes on the biofuel to 12 cents a gallon. Gas station owners can apply for grants to convert their facilities to offer ethanol or biodiesel, which will be helpful since Granholm acknowledged that the infrastructure for biofuels is not yet in place.
Also, the Bangor biodiesel plant we mentioned back in May will be opening up for business later this month.
