Growth Energy announces White Energy as newest member

By Growth Energy | May 08, 2018

Growth Energy is proud to welcome its newest member, White Energy. One of the nation’s largest ethanol producers, White Energy operates three state-of-the-art ethanol production facilities with the capacity to produce more than 300 million gallons of renewable biofuels a year. It distributes fuel to the world’s leading oil companies both domestically and abroad.

“White Energy is a true leader in expanding markets for biofuels both on the domestic and global levels, and we are thrilled to have them on our team,” Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor said. “It’s a pivotal time for our industry and we’re building a foundation that will yield growth opportunities for a whole new generation of farmers, biofuel producers, and retailers. Being united as an industry is key to ensuring we successfully overcome growing threats to the RFS, grow our industry, and expand consumer access to clean, homegrown biofuels.”

White Energy President and CEO Greg Thompson is focused on accelerating White Energy’s growth by taking a leadership role in addressing the issues and opportunities facing the global ethanol industry.

“White Energy is excited about working with Growth Energy and other industry leaders to tackle the issues that are critical to the long-term success of biofuels,” Thompson said. “Growth Energy brings tremendous knowledge and expertise to the table, and we look forward to working together to drive our industry forward.”

With plants in Kansas and Texas, White Energy is perfectly situated near the nation’s leading grain producers, top ethanol markets, and largest cattle populations. An abundant supply of nearby wheat, corn and sorghum lowers feedstock costs and on-site rail yards enable the company to efficiently transport ethanol to Texas and California, the nation’s largest consumers, as well as international ports in Houston.

On the global front, White Energy exports ethanol to rapidly growing markets in South America, Asia, and India. All three of its ethanol plants have distilled spirits permits that enable the company to sell non-denatured ethanol into the international export market.
