Providing Clean, High-Performance Fuel

Building Markets for Ethanol

Kansas Corn works to build market opportunities for corn in all forms. Ethanol is a top use for Kansas Corn. The state’s 12 ethanol plants produce nearly half a billion gallons of renewable, clean burning ethanol fuel and distillers grains, a high nutrient livestock feed, creating a market for 170 million bushels of corn. Distillers grains are sold wet as WDGS to nearby livestock feeders, or they are dried to make DDGS that can be sold nearby or exported to other states or other countries. Our plants produce a high performance, renewable and environmentally friendly fuel that’s also friendly to your wallet.

Kansas Corn Commission--Building Markets for Ethanol & DDGS

  • Leading projects to build fuel infrastructure in Kansas and across the U.S. to increase the availability of higher ethanol blends.
  • Aggressively pursuing opportunities to build  exports of ethanol and DDGS with the US Grains Council.
  • Educating consumers about the benefits of ethanol-blended fuels. With and our new website!

Kansas Corn Growers Association--Working with NCGA to:

  • Protect and preserve the Renewable Fuel Standard, which helps to ensure market access for ethanol.
  • Fight efforts to lower the level of ethanol in the RFS.
  • Work with National Corn Growers Association and ethanol groups to end restrictions and allow year-round E15 by the 2019 summer driving season.

Fueled by Kansas

Kansas Corn launched a new campaign today to push consumers to purchase higher ethanol blends. The new website will serve as an information source and offers an interactive map of stations selling E15 and higher blends. Check it out here. Also be sure to “like” our Fueled by Kansas Facebook page.

Kansas Corn Flex Fuel Grant Program

  • The Kansas Corn Commission (KCC) designed this grant program to incentivize Kansas fuel retailers to add mid and upper level ethanol blends as an option for their customers.
  • This program assists with the additional costs of upgrading to flex fuel dispensers and is designed to accelerate the use and availability of E15, E30, and E85 fuel blends as a clean-burning, renewable alternative to conventional gasoline in Kansas.
  • Grant program requirements and information can be found here.

For more details, please contact Emily Koop, market development coordinator.
