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!

"We showed Washington that ethanol is not only essential, but an unsung hero in the effort to eradicate the virus. No other industry is in the same position to revitalize rural America.”
