Policy Priorities

Ethanol Policy

We value further development of the ethanol supply chain at home and abroad to:

increase demand for domestic corn, promote consumer choice at the pump and establish a cleaner and more renewable alternative to petrochemical additives in fuels.

Our Association Objectives:

  • Continue to build infrastructure to support year-round sales of Unleaded 88 (E15) and other higher blends of ethanol.
  • Support a new national fuel economy standard for High Octane-Low Carbon fuels by establishing 98 RON as the minimum octane fuel standard for mid-level blends.
  • Pass legislation in the Ohio General Assembly to support tax credits to retailers of ethanol blends above E10.
  • Support international market development efforts to increase exports of domestically-produced ethanol and ethanol coproducts.
  • Support and encourage the development and adoption of renewable fuel standards in international markets.
