Who are we? At Whitefox, we Waste Less and Produce More. This applies not only to the work we do but also to the people who do it. We work with our customers to:
- Consume less energy and water and create production efficiencies
- Curtail harmful emissions and foster healthy environments
- Waste fewer person-hours and increase innovation
- Trim client costs and improve sustainability and the global economy
We are innovators; we use our proprietary technologies to develop beautifully engineered solutions with global partners collaboratively.
We are influencers; we challenge incumbent technology providers and create opportunities for producers (our customers) to think differently.
Our markets are global; Our primary near-term market focus is the North American Bioethanol sector – this is an exciting sector making a meaningful impact on reducing energy consumptions and carbon emissions. However, we also have clients who make bio-chemicals, Vitamin C, perfume, and vodka – so variety is part of this opportunity. We are looking beyond North America and Europe with expansions in South America and Asia.
