Fueling the growth of ethanol
Indiana-grown and Indiana-processed ethanol is a renewable fuel that benefits Indiana’s economy. The ethanol industry continues to grow, and the Indiana Corn Marketing Council (ICMC) is here to help grow its production and usage through research, education and promotion.
Ethanol in the U.S. and Indiana has become a main driver of economic growth supporting, directly or indirectly, corn farmers and businesses within their supply chain. Our objective is to make sure this important market for Indiana-grown corn remains viable and healthy.
What's the benefit? The ICMC works to promote new and expanding market opportunities by educating Indiana drivers about ethanol choices at the pump, promoting e15 and e85 usage and investing in research to understand the benefits of ethanol to our state.
Indiana is well-positioned to grow its leadership role in ethanol production and usage now and into the future. With 14 plants in the state and approximately one-third of the state's crop converted into ethanol, the ethanol industry is already positively serving Indiana's economy and corn farmers.
