Feedstock Flexibility Program

Introducing the Feedstock Flexibility Program for Bioenergy Producers

Feedstock Flexibility Program for Bioenergy Producers will encourage the domestic production of biofuels from surplus sugar. USDA will review the domestic sugar market every year and determine the level of sugar purchases needed to avoid forfeiture of CCC sugar price support loan collateral. CCC will announce the amount and timing of surplus sugar purchases from sugar suppliers and sales to bioenergy producers.

If you have questions, comments or require additional information, please use Ask USDA, an interactive link between you and your Farm Service Agency available 24/7.
