1 America’s Homegrown Fuel GrowthEnergy.org THE FACTS ABOUT ETHANOL

2 Every day, homegrown ethanol is helping America become more energy independent. Used as a supplement in gasoline, American ethanol offsets 42 million gallons of foreign oil a day, helping reduce prices at the pump. Higher blends of ethanol are used by millions of vehicles already on the road, and that number is growing. Renewable American ethanol is paving the way to a cleaner, better future.

4 Ethanol: America’s Energy Cleaner, Greener and Homegrown Ethanol is America’s renewable fuel — reliable, clean, homegrown, affordable and available. Using ethanol as a supplement in gasoline reduces greenhouse gas emissions, decreases our dependence on foreign oil, creates American jobs and revitalizes our rural communities. Renewable biofuels like ethanol are paving the way towards U.S. energy independence. Currently, ethanol displaces 42 million gallons of imported oil per day. In 2013, ethanol saved American consumers more than $100 billion. Imagine how much more we can save with higher blends like E15, while sending less money overseas and keeping more investment at home. New innovations are constantly improving ethanol production, making it more energy and resource efficient, and allowing the fuel to be produced from almost anything, from corn cobs to plant materials to waste, meaning ethanol will never run out. With rapidly growing energy demands, our nation must invest in homegrown biofuels that are cleaner, cheaper and offer a more reliable supply than fossil fuels. Imagine all the good we can do for our economy, our environment and our future by increasing the blend of ethanol in our fuel supply.

18 Small Impact U.S. Ethanol’s Slice of the Domestic Corn Supply Only 17.5 percent of net corn acres are used for renewable fuels Biofuel production only removes the starch from the corn. The protein, fiber and oil are returned to the animal feed supply in the biofuel feed co-product known as Distiller’s Grains (DDGs). Distiller’s Grains amount to one- third of the corn used in ethanol production. Distiller’s Grains also replace soybean meal in feed rations, meaning there is less demand for soybeans, requiring fewer acres planted to soybeans Crop Year Corn Acreage >> Actual “net acres” used for ethanol are less than 50 percent of gross acres. Only the starch is used for ethanol. DDGs displace corn and soybean meal. Corn yields are three times soybean yields.
