Shenandoah, Iowa-based BioProcess Algae, an innovation leader in the co-location of algae production with corn ethanol CO-2 recycling, has announced the initiation of Phase III of their 5-acre algae project expansion. The launch sequence began the week of September 24, 2012, in one of their primary Grower Harvester units, with the rest of the principal technology now in the process of commissioning.

According to the Company, the greenhouses are now complete. All of the new buildings are fully enclosed and the cleaning procedure that comes before inoculation has begun. The Company said that they should be adding new algae to the first building this week. Also this week they will be installing the new harvesters in the smaller two buildings.

The schedule plan is to be in full operation by early November, with product harvests starting at the end of October into the first two weeks of November.
