White Energy Holding Company, a U.S. ethanol maker bought a 100m gallon/year (about 380 m litre/year ) greenfield ethanol project from Scoular,a US based agricultural services company. The Plainview, Texas plant, will be a “near twin” of White Energy’s other ethanol facility under construction in Hereford,Texas. The Plainview facility is fully permitted and construction is underway, with completion targeted for early 2008. White Energy also owns an operating 45mgallon/year plant in Russell, Kansas, which, when combined with output of the two Texas plants, will bring White Energy’s total production capacity to 245 MGPY.
White Energy has also formed a long-term strategic relationship with Scoular, that will see Scoular provide grain procurement and distillers grain marketing services for some White Energy plants and comprehensive risk management.
