The Hereford, Texas plant is an ICM designed, Fagen constructed plant that began production in 2008. The state-of-the-art ethanol production facility has increased production by 18 percent over the past five years and enjoyed its highest production year ever in 2017.
The plant is strategically located on a BNSF rail line that delivers feedstock supplies. It also provides convenient access to the nation’s leading ethanol markets in California and Texas. An on-site rail loop holds 172 railcars that efficiently deliver more than 75% of the ethanol produced at the plant. Trucks transport the remaining ethanol to nearby markets.
White Energy has recently invested more than $10 million in capital investments at the plant, including a CO2 scrubber to reduce production bottlenecks and improve ethanol yields and the installation of a ICM Tricanter that separates distillers corn oil to generate additional revenues.
Bobby Eason joined the White Energy team in 2018 and is currently responsible for managing the ethanol plant in Hereford, Texas. He manages a talented and hard-working team of 50 employees at the Hereford plant.
