RFA Philosophy

Creating opportunity and driving growth for America’s ethanol industry

Since 1981, the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) has been helping Americans have more affordable, efficient, and environmentally friendly fuel for their cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles and engines of all kind.

As the authoritative voice of the U.S. ethanol industry, RFA helps America become cleaner, safer, and more energy independent.

In creating a forum for ethanol producers and industry stakeholders, RFA has achieved an unequaled record of results through action, advocacy and analysis.

With the most experienced staff in the industry, the RFA provides timely, comprehensive industry information to our members, Congress, federal and state government agencies, fuel marketers and retailers, strategic partners, the media and other industry leaders.

RFA has been the renewable fuel industry’s most effective advocate for expanding the market for ethanol.
