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.

About Us

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.

Unity is our strength as we work to impact public policy, build consumer support for higher blends of ethanol, and combat misinformation from the oil industry head on. Three core principals of engagement guide our mission at Growth Energy:

  1. Facilitating greater market access for higher blends of ethanol
  2. Reintroducing American consumers to ethanol
  3. Defending the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) and pursuing pro-biofuel policies


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 90 U.S. biorefineries providing homegrown biofuels that cut energy costs and reduce U.S. reliance on foreign oil. In 2016, our industry contributed over $42.1 billion to America’s GDP, added nearly $22.5 billion to household income and supported more than 339,000 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? Click here to learn more about the benefits and importance of becoming a Growth Energy member.
