SIOUX FALLS, SD -
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has awarded a South Dakota company more than $6,000 to expand production of advanced biofuels.
Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack says Hanson County Oil Producers LLC is one of 156 companies across the country that received more than $44 million as part of the USDA's Bioenergy Program for Advanced Biofuels.
Alexandria-based Hanson County Oil Producers is receiving about $6,600.
Vilsack says the funding will help local producers increase production and availability of renewable energy, which will help the nation begin to reduce its reliance on foreign oil.
