(1) As a production incentive of 75¢ per gallon for biomass-based diesel produced in this Commonwealth beginning July 1, 2008, and sold in this Commonwealth for commercial transportation purposes or for residential heating. In the case of biomass-based diesel, this incentive shall be available through June 30, 2011. If the total monthly amount of production incentives applied for by all qualified applicants exceeds the remaining amount available for those incentives, then the incentive shall be prorated among all qualified applicants.

For purposes of this section, all facilities under common ownership shall be counted as a single facility.

The form shall require the producer to submit proof of production of the biomass-based diesel and the number of gallons sold during the previous calendar month and such other information as the department deems appropriate. A biomass-based diesel producer shall also submit a certificate of analysis from an accredited laboratory for every 500,000 gallons of biomass-based diesel produced showing that the biodiesel meets the ASTM Specification D6751, Standard Specification for Biodiesel Fuel Blend Stock (B100) for Middle Distillate Fuels or its successor standard.
