Alcohol Products

Western New York Energy is excited to announce our new line of high-purity alcohol products. Our team has been working diligently over the past ten months to expand our facility to be able to produce high-purity grades of alcohol in addition to our existing fuel ethanol product offering.

The expansion and associated equipment will have the capacity to produce 15 million gallons of high-purity alcohol annually. This higher purity alcohol will be plant-based, which will help our customers further achieve their commitment to sustainability and other eco-friendly practices. After construction and testing are complete, we will be capable of producing beverage, industrial, and pharmaceutical grades of alcohol.

The 6,000 square-foot expansion will make Western New York Energy the largest producer of beverage grade Grain Neutral Spirits (GNS) in New York State, sourced from New York corn.
