Providing Clean, High-Performance Fuel
Building Markets for Ethanol
Kansas Corn works to build market opportunities for corn, and ethanol is a top use for Kansas Corn. The state’s 12 ethanol plants produce 600 million gallons of renewable, clean burning ethanol fuel and distillers grains, a high nutrient livestock feed, creating a market for 214 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.
Kansas Corn Growers Association--Working with NCGA to:
- Protecting the Renewable Fuel Standard, which provides market access for ethanol
- Fight efforts to lower the level of ethanol in the RFS
- Supporting a High Octane, Low Carbon fuel standard to build the future of ethanol
Fueled by Kansas
- Kansas Corn’s Fueled by Kansas campaign, educates and encourages consumers to purchase higher ethanol blends. The new fueledbykansas.com 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
- Designed to incentivize Kansas fuel retailers to add mid and upper level ethanol blends as an option for their customers
- Assists with the additional costs of upgrading to dispensers to provide higher ethanol blends.
- Grant program requirements and information can be found here. Contact Emily Koop, market development coordinator for more information.
