BioProcess Algae, LLC, based in Portsmouth, RI, and currently running a demonstration plant at the Green Plains Renewable Energy, Inc. ethanol plant in Shenandoah, Iowa, has announced they are in the final construction stage of their Phase III Commercial Farm at the Green Plains site in Shenandoah.

Construction, which began in February of this year, is set to conclude in the next several weeks. Four commercial scale Grower Harvester™ platforms will use the carbon dioxide from Green Plains’ ethanol plant to produce high quality algal feedstocks. The algal biomass produced at Phase III will be used to meet consumer demand for a suite of products. The company is currently focused on fulfilling feedstock needs in the animal feeds and transportation fuels industries for cost competitive alternatives with favorable carbon balances.

BioProcess Algae’s Grower Harvester™ bioreactors, installed in Shenandoah and tied directly into the Green Plains Renewable Energy’s ethanol plant’s CO2 exhaust gas, have been operating continuously since inoculation in October 2009.

BioProcess Algae LLC is a joint venture among Clarcor, BioProcess H2O, and Green Plains Renewable Energy.
