American Coalition For Ethanol (ACE)
The American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) is the grassroots voice of the U.S. ethanol industry. ACE is a national, non-profit organization of more than 700 members in 43 states, including ethanol producers, farmers, investors, commodity organizations, businesses supplying goods and services to the industry, rural electric cooperatives, and others supportive of the increased production and use of ethanol across America.

American Lung Association
Motorized vehicles are the #1 single largest source of air pollution. Our engines and the fuels used to power them release numerous pollutants into the air through combustion and fuel evaporation. Each pollutant has serious effects on human health and the environment.

Governors' Biofuel Coalition
In September 1991, Nebraska's governor asked other governors interested in creating a group devoted to the promotion and increased use of ethanol to join him in Lincoln, Nebraska. From that meeting, the Governors' Ethanol Coalition emerged. Membership in the Coalition doubled from nine to 19 states during the first year. Membership as of January 2005 stands at 30 states with international representatives from Brazil, Canada, Mexico, Sweden and Thailand.

Growth Energy
Growth Energy is committed to the promise of agriculture and growing America's economy through cleaner, greener energy. Growth Energy members recognize America needs a new ethanol approach. Through smart policy reform and a proactive grassroots campaign, Growth Energy promotes reducing greenhouse gas emissions, expanding the use of ethanol in gasoline, decreasing our dependence on foreign oil, and creating American jobs at home.

Renewable Fuels Association (RFA)
As the national trade association for the U.S. fuel ethanol industry, the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) has been the "Voice of the Ethanol Industry" since 1981. The RFA serves as a vital link between the ethanol industry and the federal government, including the Congress and Administration, to promote increased production and use of ethanol through supportive policies, regulations, and research & development initiatives.

Urban Air Institute
Founded in 2012, the Urban Air Initiative (UAI) is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving air quality and protecting public health by reducing vehicle emissions. UAI is focused on increasing the use of clean burning ethanol in our gasoline supply to replace harmful aromatic compounds in gasoline. UAI is helping meet public policy goals to lower emissions and reduce carbon in our environment through scientific studies and real-world data to promote new fuels, engine design, and public awareness.
