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 46%.
We are covering a lot of exciting topics, including:
- Ethanol’s role in environmental health & justice
- Farming CI accounting & sustainability
- Carbon Capture & Sequestration
- Innovative uses for ethanol and its co-products
- Retailer market growth and more!
Groundbreaking University Research Says E30 is Safe for Non-Flex Fuel Vehicles
The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln recently published “Redefining Renewable Fuels”; an in-depth demonstration of the long-term adaptability and feasibility of E30 consumption in non-flex fuel vehicles.
The E30 Demonstration has officially been peer reviewed and published in ScienceDirect. View it here.
