The goals of the coalition are expressed in its 1992 policy statement: “It is the Coalition’s goal to increase the use of ethanol based fuels, to decrease the nation’s dependence on imported energy resources, improve the environment and stimulate the national economy. This will be accomplished through a coordinated set of activities designed to educate and demonstrate to the public the benefits of ethanol use; to encourage ethanol fuel production and use through research and market development efforts; and to make investments in infrastructure to support expansion of the ethanol market. The Coalition supports the production of ethanol from corn or other domestic, renewable resources using sustainable agricultural methods and encourages its use in environmentally acceptable applications.”
