On December 1, 2007, Western New York Energy (WNYE) completed construction and began producing clean burning, homegrown ethanol at its $90 million facility originally designed to produce 50 million gallons of fuel grade ethanol per year. Ten years later, the company has added additional capacity through further investment, implemented new production technologies, and improved production efficiencies to be an industry leader. Also in the first ten years, WNYE formed a transportation subsidiary, Shelby Transportation, LLC, to fill a logistics need for smaller farmers and WNY feed mills.

Since the beginning, Western New York Energy has partnered with New York corn growers to purchase as much corn locally as possible. WNYE is projected to grind almost 21 million bushels of corn in 2018.

Congratulations, Western New York! We can’t wait to work with you over the next 10 years, and beyond!

President Trump committed to #E15YearRound to strengthen rural economies – the EPA is putting his promise in danger. Rural communities are counting on Secretary Perdue to honor the President’s promise and hold the EPA accountable. #RFSworks https://t.co/KeF9CZzdfL @GrowthEnergy
