Nebraska is one of the nation’s leading ethanol producers and the third largest commodity in the state’s agriculture. The Nebraska ethanol industry purchases nearly 1/3 of field corn grown in the state, supports more than 6,200 full-time jobs and contributes $4.5 billion to the state’s GDP annually.
Additionally, when consumers choose ethanol at the pump, they are helping the environment. Unlike pure gasoline, ethanol is non-toxic and cleaner burning. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, its use reduces greenhouse gases by 43%.
The Nebraska Ethanol Board’s mission is to establish procedures and processes necessary to the manufacturing and marketing of ethanol fuel and its co-products. We are proud to serve 24 ethanol plants who have the capacity to produce more than 2.5 billion gallons of ethanol, as well as many co-products that feed and fuel the world.
