Ethanol

Corn ethanol is critical for a sustainable, clean energy future. Read more in our Politico Focus Brief on Feeding and Fueling a Growing World.
Listen to the latest Agri-Pulse Deep Dive series, focused on ethanol and the biofuels industry.
Today, nearly every gallon of gasoline in the U.S. contains a minimum of 10% ethanol derived from corn.

 

U.S. corn farmers believe so strongly in the case for higher blends of ethanol, because of corn ethanol’s ability to improve engine performance and reduce environmental impacts, all at a lower cost to consumers. Corn farmers work tirelessly to ensure consumers have a future choice at the fuel pump that delivers all the benefits possible through fuels blended with higher volumes of ethanol.

 

Whether it’s backing the market access provided by the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) or expanding the marketplace with higher blends of ethanol, like E15, the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) is working for America’s corn farmers to increase ethanol use.

 

Each year, roughly 30% of field corn goes into fuel ethanol. Ethanol is the second-largest customer for U.S. corn. Corn ethanol is uniquely positioned to play a larger role in the future of transportation fuels.
