White Energy to Join the NSP Industry Partner Program

LUBBOCK, Texas (Feb. 9, 2022)— National Sorghum Producers is pleased to announce White Energy has joined the NSP Industry Partner Program as a Gold+ Level sponsor.

“White Energy remains a leader in the sorghum ethanol space, and we are thrilled the company has committed to align with NSP as an industry partner,” NSP CEO Tim Lust said. “Although the ethanol industry has experienced challenges in recent years, the enhanced focus on climate and sustainable sources of food, fuel and fiber make the sorghum and the ethanol industries well poised to partner for success now and in the future. We see tremendous opportunity to do that with White Energy.”

As one of the most productive facilities for biofuels and animal feed, White Energy is capable of producing over 250 million gallons of ethanol every year. Consisting of two locations in the Texas Panhandle, the company has implemented strategies to obtain low carbon intensity ratings and utilize their onsite rail yard to deliver ethanol to California and international ports.

“White Energy is pleased to collaborate with NSP as an industry leader striving toward a low carbon future locally, nationally, and abroad. Together as one collective voice we will be prominent and influential in shaping that future and the policies guiding it, while at the same time bringing value back to our partner farmers,” said White Energy Vice President of Commodities and Risk Management Christopher Hughes.

“To accomplish this, we are pushing to source a greater portion of our grains right here at home benefiting the same communities that have allowed us to grow and succeed as not only a company, but also as a good corporate citizen,” he added. “As we continue pushing to increase plant efficiencies on our path to carbon-neutral, local and regionally sourced sorghum has become a premiere feedstock and remains vital in allowing us to make these significant strides while producing green renewable biofuels to power America forward.”

The ethanol industry typically accounts for 10 percent of the total demand for U.S. sorghum. Through the partnership between NSP and White Energy, the industry is seeing support from one of its leading domestic markets and one of the nation’s leading producers in this industry.

Support from industry partners like White Energy helps NSP advocate for, promote and defend the sorghum industry.
