In Louisiana, Whitefox Technologies Limited announced at the National Ethanol Conference an agreement with Iowa-based Pine Lake Corn Processors to install the first Whitefox ICESolution in the Mid-West. PLCP operates a 30-million gallon per year ethanol plant in Steamboat Rock, Iowa. Whitefox’s technology reduces energy consumption, increases production efficiencies and contributes to the production of low-carbon ethanol. The agreement follows last week’s announcement in relation to the installation of the Whitefox ICE solution at the Pacific Ethanol plant in Madera CA and reflects the move by U.S. producers to improve the overall efficiency of production.
Whitefox’s CEO Gillian Harrison stated: “We are delighted that Pine Lake Corn Processors chose the Whitefox ICE solution to provide PLCP with the ability to produce ethanol to the highest market standards in the most energy and water efficient way. This will be the second installation of our ICE technology in the U.S. We are pleased to be helping to improve the overall efficiency of U.S. ethanol production.”
