About Company

Growth Energy is the leading biofuel trade association in the country. We represent producers and supporters of ethanol who are working to bring consumers better choices at the fuel pump, grow America’s economy, and improve the environment for future generations.  Our growing membership base now represents nearly half of all American ethanol plants along with many of the largest and most prominent fuel retailers in the country and the industry’s top associate members whose businesses support the ethanol industry.

Mission Statement

We represent the producers and supporters of ethanol, who feed the world and fuel America in ways that achieve energy independence, improve economic well-being, and create a healthier environment for all Americans now.

Membership

Growth Energy is the nation’s premier trade association working to advance pro-biofuel policies and expand consumer access to higher blends of ethanol at the gas pump. We are committed to driving demand for ethanol by empowering consumers with information on homegrown biofuels and forging strategic partnerships across the entire biofuels supply chain.  Our membership is the lifeblood of our organization, and our members play a key role in every segment of the biofuel supply chain, operating more than 100 U.S. biorefineries providing homegrown biofuels that cut energy costs and reduce U.S. reliance on foreign oil. In 2018, our industry contributed nearly $46 billion to America’s GDP, purchased over $23 billion worth of corn from farmers in the U.S., and supported more than 366,000 American jobs.  Are you ready to help us tell the world that ethanol is the best option to bring consumers better choices at the fuel pump, grow America’s economy, and keep our air cleaner for future generations?

Renewable Fuel Standard

The Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) is a great American success story. It has helped provide consumers with real choice and savings at the pump while strengthening our economy, delivering greater energy independence, and improving our environment.  The RFS has broad, bipartisan support in Congress and among state leaders. It has injected much-needed competition into the market, ensuring that homegrown fuels can reach consumers at the fuel pump since its enactment under the Energy Policy Act of 2005 and expansion under the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007.

Benefits of the RFS

  • Thanks to the RFS, ethanol is now blended into 98 percent of our fuel supply, and production of homegrown biofuels supports economic growth across the heartland. In fact, America is a global leader in ethanol production, an industry that supports over 365,000 U.S. jobs and added nearly $44.4 billion to the nation’s gross domestic product.
  • Ethanol is an earth-friendly biofuel that reduces greenhouse gas emissions by an average of 39 percent, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and this percentage continues to increase with ongoing innovations in technology. Ethanol also protects our health by displacing toxic chemicals in gasoline associated with groundwater contamination, smog, asthma, and cancer.
  • By providing an affordable alternative for foreign oil, ethanol helps to hold down prices and shields U.S. drivers against efforts by hostile nations to manipulate global energy prices. In fact, ethanol now meets more than 10 percent of our motor fuel needs and has helped America cut our dependence on oil imports in half since 2005, when the RFS was first enacted.
  • The RFS creates competition at the pump, ensuring that consumers have cleaner, more affordable options when fueling up. As a result, U.S. drivers save money on fuel – as much as $1.50 per gallon during the last spike in global oil prices. Consumers also appreciate that higher biofuel blends can deliver more octane for better performance and help to reduce toxic emissions in the air.   
  • The RFS also stimulates investment in second-generation biofuels that can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 100 percent or more over gasoline. This technology creates value from the waste portion of crops left in the field, while displacing even more carcinogens in gasoline.
