$40,000 grant to a farmer in CO for SVO

Postby SunWizard » Tue Feb 16, 2010 11:05 am

This grant is available to agricultural producers and agricultural service providers in Colorado.
Program Description: The purpose of this program is to demonstrate opportunities for Colorado farmers to reduce fuel costs and become more self-sufficient through the local production of oil, meal and biodiesel. iCAST is offering up to $40,000 to successful applicants who will build an on-farm vegetable oil, meal and/or biodiesel processing facility in Colorado. Funding may be used toward the direct costs associated with the installation of any systems related to the objective of producing fuel from locally-produced vegetable oil or fat. Examples may include farm-scale equipment for oil extraction, oil or fat refining, biodiesel conversion, waste mitigation and control, or processing or pelletizing the meal. Funding may not be used for research and development of novel processes or costs associated with acquiring the fat or oil. An evaluation of the project will begin immediately after the facilities are operational. The results of this demonstration project may be used by iCAST and the Colorado Department of Agriculture to promote replication of the facility by other Colorado agricultural producers.
