December 1, 2017 |

In New York, Western New York Energy celebrated its 10th anniversary from when it began production at its 62-million gallon per year ethanol plant in Medina, being the first ethanol plant in New York. The ethanol plant had an initial production capacity of 50 million gallons per year and today is capable of producing 30% more than its original nameplate design. The ethanol plant uses more than 20 million bushels of locally grown corn every year and projects to use nearly 21 million bushels of corn next year, while also producing more than 160,000 tons per year of high-quality distillers grain.

“We are excited to have reached this milestone,” said WNYE President and CEO Tim Winters in the RFA press release. “For the past 10 years, we have been proud to partner with New York farmers to produce a clean, renewable and domestically produced fuel. We look forward to serving our communities and the U.S. ethanol industry for many years to come, helping to provide consumers with a choice at the pump.”
