New Study Finds Ohio Ethanol Industry Supports 13,000 Jobs and Pumps $2.6 Billion into State’s Economy Since 2008

The Ohio ethanol industry in conjunction with researchers from The Ohio State University released a first-of-its-kind study detailing the impact ethanol has had on Ohio since the first plants were built in 2008.  Among the highlights:

·  The ethanol industry has supported nearly 13,000 jobs and invested more than $2.6 billion in the state since 2008 through the construction and operation of ethanol facilities.

·   Ethanol plant operations are pumping an estimated $433 million in economic output and generating an additional $103 million in direct income for Ohio households every single year.

·   Current ethanol operations directly or indirectly employ 1,562 people across the state.  For every 1 of the 280 jobs directly involved in ethanol operations, another 4.57 jobs are created in rural industries.
