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.

Ethanol is energy positive

Ethanol produces three times more energy than it takes to produce it while consuming less water than other fuels.

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.
