Ethanol is the fastest growing corn market.
The IL Corn Growers Association tackles legislative barriers to a growing ethanol market, like moving the E10 tax savings to E15 in Illinois to give consumers an additional financial incentive to fuel up with E15. Additionally, ICGA is working diligently for the passage of Next Generation Fuels Ac, which would allow ethanol to be an important part of a new fuel standard, and for expanded ethanol trade.
The IL Corn Marketing Board is updating ethanol infrastructure so that when the legislative barriers are removed, we’re ready to fuel up Illinois! ICMB also promotes your fuel through programs with local retailers.
