The Nebraska Ethanol Board’s mission is to establish procedures and processes necessary to the manufacturing and marketing of ethanol fuel. In doing so, we support jobs for more than 1,400 Nebraskans and directly impact our state’s economy by $5 billion.

We are proud to serve 25 ethanol plants who have the capacity to produce more than 2.5 billion gallons of ethanol– making Nebraska the No. 2 ethanol-producing state in the country. Ethanol production increases demand for field corn, which helps Nebraska’s agriculture thrive.

Additionally, when consumers choose ethanol at the pump, they are helping the environment. Unlike pure gasoline, ethanol is non-toxic and cleaner burning. Its use reduces greenhouse gases by 42%.

Fuel the Cure is an opportunity to raise awareness for breast cancer (and other cancers) by choosing cleaner-burning biofuel blends at the fuel pump. This year we have 36 participating fuel retailers. Click here to learn more or to sign up!
The Field to Fuel video contest encourages Nebraska high school students to explore the importance and value of ethanol. Learn more here.


Nebraska Department of Environment and Energy has funds available for Nebraska fuel retailers to upgrade their fueling infrastructure to dispense higher ethanol blends.  Learn more here.
