Western Plains pioneering carbon neutral ethanol production

November 24, 2022 |

In Kansas, Whitefox announced that Western Plains Energy LLC will be the first US ethanol producer to install Whitefox ICE®-XL system at its 50 million gallons per year ethanol plant in Kansas.

Derek Peine, CEO at Western Plains Energy said: “Since beginning operations in 2004, Western Plains has always been on the forefront of innovation and an early adaptor of technologies that deliver step-changes in energy efficiency and operational yield. In our discussion with Whitefox we found that its ICE-XL integrated membrane solution would serve as a cornerstone in fully decarbonizing our production process. Our quest to achieve net-zero emissions is something that we are passionate about, and we are excited to partner with Whitefox to help us achieve our goal.”

Engineering phase 1 is already in progress and the project has an estimated start-up and commissioning date towards the end of 2023.
