White Energy is one of the nation’s leading producers of biofuels, food ingredients, and animal feed. It owns and operates four state-of-the-art grain processing facilities in Texas and Kansas. White Energy has the capacity to produce more than 300 million gallons of ethanol per year and is the largest manufacturer of vital wheat gluten in North America. The privately-held company is based in Plano, Texas and employs 200 people.
White Energy’s successful gluten operation provides a strategic advantage: a reliable and consistent revenue stream that enables it to effectively withstand any volatility in the ethanol market. In addition, the company generates additional revenues from its leadership in low carbon intensity fuels and a variety of co-products.
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. The plants are also located in an area with 2.5 million cattle, providing an ideal market for distributing wet and dry distillers grains.
White Energy produces ethanol with some of the lowest carbon intensity ratings of any plant in the nation. The company has invested heavily in capital improvement projects recently that reduce water consumption and decrease electric usage, including updated waste water treatment facilities and integrated zero liquids discharge technology.

The company prides itself on its outstanding safety record and conducts regular training to ensure that safety remains top of mind with every employee.
