Ord blender pump grand opening slated for Thursday

LINCOLN, NE – Country Partners Cooperative will host a blender pump grand opening this Thursday, September 9, at their location at 424 North 14th Street in Ord, Nebraska. Country Partners will have specials on E10, E20, E30 and E85 starting at 10:00 a.m. and lasting until 2:00 p.m. In addition to the fuel specials, door prizes and drawings will be held as well as a BBQ served by the local FFA chapter.

Country Partner’s blender pump was financially supported in part by the Nebraska Corn Board (NCB) through a blender pump grant program offered to those looking at installing blender pumps in Nebraska. Blender pumps offer the flexibility of mid-level blends of ethanol for flex fuel vehicle (FFV) owners for blends above 10%.

“With the incentive being offered by the Nebraska Corn Board and the growing number of flex fuel vehicles (FFV) being driven across the U.S., blender pumps are one avenue to help get the ethanol industry past the blend wall,” stated Curt Friesen. Friesen, from Henderson, Neb. Is a member of the Nebraska Corn Board and currently serves as chairman of the market development committee.

In addition to the NCB’s incentive, other credits are available. “There is also a federal tax incentive available through the end of the year to these stations that make the investment in a blender pump,” added Friesen.

In addition to the Nebraska Corn Board, the Country Partner’s blender pump was supported by Green Plains Renewable Energy and Growth Energy. For more information about NCB’s blender pump incentive grant program, visit www.NebraskaCorn.org and click on the Blender Pump Info icon on the homepage.
