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.

The Kansas Corn Commission: building markets for ethanol and DDGS

  • Funding and administering projects to build fuel infrastructure in Kansas and across the U.S. in order to increase the availability of higher ethanol blends to motorists.
  • Aggressively pursue opportunities to build  exports of ethanol and DDGS, working with the US Grains Council.
  • Educating consumers about the benefits of ethanol-blended fuels. Visit for more ethanol information!

The Kansas Corn Growers Association works with the National Corn Growers Association (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 NCGA and ethanol groups to end restrictions and allow year-round E15 by the 2019 driving season.
