Construction start imminent for Iowa algae biofuels project

February 8, 2012 |

In Iowa, Green Plains’ joint venture with BioProcess Algae to build BioProcess’ five acre production facility co-located with Green Plains’ ethanol facility in Shenandoah will soon begin construction.

Horizontal reactors were already brought online last year but this new expansion will include Grower Harvester bioreactors and a plant to further dewater and process the algae while the horizontal reactors will begin operating at commercial scale. Sales of dried algae will begin during the third quarter.
