Ohio corn is used for more than food

Ohio corn is used for feed, fuel and other renewable products.

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.

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).
