Helping Farmers and Ethanol Producers Maximize Their Low Carbon Investments

  • ACE is helping farmers adopt practices such as conservation tillage, 4R nutrient management, and cover crops to reduce the carbon intensity of their corn
  • We have created calculators to do the math on what technology investments and climate-smart farming practices are worth 
  • We’re collaborating with scientists to monitor and measure the GHG benefits resulting from climate-smart ag practices, to convince market regulators that farmers and ethanol plants need to receive valuable carbon credits
  • We will build a non-proprietary tool so farmers and ethanol producers can quantify and verify how many carbon credits certain farming practices, on certain soil types, in certain counties should receive

The value of this activity? Market and policy support for the low carbon benefits ethanol delivers, and premiums paid for cleaner gallons of ethanol sold in the future.
