SHENANDOAH, Iowa - Shenandoah's BioProcess Algae and Green Plains Renewable Energy broke ground Wednesday on the construction of its five-acre production plant at Green Plains in Shenandoah.
The project's Grower Harvester bioreactors, or ponds, have been effectively running outdoors since late August 2011. This groundbreaking marks the third phase in the project to commercialize algae for feed and high-value nutraceutical markets. Phase one of algae production launched in October 2009.
