Did you know?

Ethanol helps to produce cleaner air

Ethanol use is estimated to have reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 110 metric tons—equal to removing 20 million vehicles off the road—in 2016.

There are seven operational ethanol plants and 120 E-85 stations in Ohio

40% of Ohio’s corn goes towards ethanol production without reducing available stocks for food and animal feed. 33% of the corn used to produce ethanol returns to the market as animal feed (DDGs). 523 million gallons of ethanol was produced in Ohio in 2016.

Ohio is the seventh leading producer of corn in the United States

There are more than 30,000 grain farmers throughout the state with over 14.3 million acres devoted to farmland (half of Ohio’s acreage).

Edge-of-field testing is vital for environmental stewardship

More than $1 million is being invested by Ohio’s agricultural organizations to conduct on-farm, edge-of-field testing in order to determine exactly how nutrients are making it into Ohio’s waterways.
