Title: Biorefinery, Renewable Chemical, and Biobased Product Manufacturing Assistance Program 

The purpose of the Biorefinery, Renewable Chemical, and Biobased Product Manufacturing Program is to assist in the development of new and emerging technologies for advanced biofuels, renewable chemicals, and biobased product manufacturing. Development is achieved through guarantees for loans to fund the development, construction, and retrofitting of commercial-scale biorefineries using eligible technology and of biobased product manufacturing facilities that use technologically new commercial-scale processing and manufacturing equipment and required facilities to convert renewable chemicals and other biobased outputs of biorefineries into end-user products on a commercial scale.

The Agency will publish a Final Rule for the 9003 Program. Other actions will include the statutory changes made in the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (2018 Farm Bill).
