Drax Biomass operates industrial wood pellet plants in Bastrop, La.; Urania, La.; and Gloster, Miss. and uses the port in Baton Rouge/Port Allen.

Drax has an impressive commitment to support the communities in which it operates by promoting sustainable forestry and investing in local development, so I am looking forward to the opportunities ahead.”

Most of his career has been in manufacturing management helping organizations grow, adapt to change and increase safety and efficiency by developing highperforming teams. A mechanical engineer by background, White has worked in a number of sectors including air products and chemicals.
