Expanding Markets for Ethanol Fuels


The Kansas Corn Commission (KCC) and the Kansas Corn Growers Association (KCGA) work to build market opportunities for corn in all forms. Ethanol is one of the top uses of corn.

Working to Build Ethanol Demand

Kansas Corn Commission

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. 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 KCC actively works to build markets for ethanol and ethanol products by:

  • 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.
  • Supporting efforts by the U.S. Grains Council to increase exports of ethanol and DDGS.
  • Educating consumers about the benefits of ethanol-blended fuels.

The Kansas Corn Growers Association

KCGA advocates for its grower members on issues like ethanol, protecting the Renewable Fuels Standard that provides market access to ethanol fuel, and working against onerous regulations like EPA’s RVP rule that unecessarily restrict markets for ethanol.

The KCGA works with the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) to:

  • Protect and preserve the Renewable Fuels Standard, which helps to ensure market access for ethanol.
  • Fight efforts to lower the level of ethanol in the RFS.
  • Work against the arcane Reid Vapor Pressure rules that limit the growth and market access for ethanol.
