biofuels. BCAP also has authorizes payments for accepted project areas.

For example: If a producer is paid $55 per dry ton for qualified biomass by the conversion facility the producer would be eligible for a $45 per dry ton payment for the costs associated with collecting, harvesting, transporting and storing the product.
Producers will be eligible for up to two years of payments once delivery begins to a designated biomass conversion facility.
