Indiana is one of the top 10 coal-producing states in the nation, but production does not meet in-state demand, which is second only to that of Texas. Although large amounts of coal are used for electricity generation (9 of the state's 10 largest power plants are coal-fired), substantial amounts are also used by the industrial sector.
Indiana is a major producer of ethanol. The state's 14 ethanol facilities are capable of producing more than 1 billion gallons of ethanol per year—equal to about 8% of the nation's total capacity.
