The Indiana Ethanol Forum held on June 9, 2011 focused on the economic importance of ethanol to Indiana. With 12 plants in the state and expansion on the horizon, the ethanol industry is growing in value to Indiana's economy and corn farmers. This was an opportunity to meet with leaders from around the state in agriculture, ethanol production, economic development and politics.
E15 Retailer Meeting
Flex Fuel Pump Grant Program
The Indiana Corn Marketing Council (ICMC) understands the need to develop markets for environmentally friendly, renewable American made ethanol blended fuels and to provide consumers with an affordable fuel choice at the pump. ICMC has developed the Flex Fuel Pump Grant Program to promote, expand and develop the ethanol blended fuels market by helping retail fuel stations with the cost of converting old pumps or installing new ethanol flex pumps.
The Indiana Corn Marketing Council’s April 2011 Economic Impact Analysis of Indiana’s ethanol industry was conducted by Informa Economics to determine the direct and indirect economic effects of ethanol production on other industries throughout the state. The study is the second installment of a previous study conducted in 2010.
