Ethanol is the fastest growing market for your corn.
And since corn farmers need to increase demand for their ever-increasing amounts of corn they grow, ethanol becomes a very important part of the programming at IL Corn.
The Illinois Corn Growers Association tackles barriers to a growing ethanol market legislatively: things like moving the E10 tax savings to E15 in Illinois, so consumers have an additional financial incentive to fuel up with E15. ICGA also gets engaged trying to acquire a Reid Vapor Pressure waiver for E15 and promoting ethanol trade.
All the while, the Illinois Corn Marketing Board is helping to bring the ethanol infrastructure up to par so that when the legislative barriers are removed, we’re ready to fuel up Illinois! ICMB also promotes your fuel through programs with NASCAR and local retailers.
