GPRE and Bioprocessalgae LLC Complete $2.1 Million Grant for Algae Pilot Project

You are at: Oilgae Blog.

Press release:

Green Plains Renewable Energy, Inc. and BioProcessAlgae LLC have executed a grant award agreement with the Iowa Office of Energy Independence for a $2.1 million research and development grant from the Iowa Power Fund to build an algae pilot project at Green Plains’ ethanol plant in Shenandoah, Iowa.

The Iowa Power Fund grant provides matching funds to install a series of photobioreactor units at Green Plains’ Shenandoah ethanol plant. Water, heat and carbon dioxide will be recycled from the ethanol manufacturing process to support continuous algae production. The grant provides funding through the end of the first quarter of calendar year 2010 with installation of the pilot project expected in the third quarter of 2009.

“BioProcessAlgae and its technology partners have made significant progress in the engineering, design and development of photobioreactor systems for algae production,” said Kevin Lynch, Chief Executive Officer of BioProcessAlgae. “The project will give us the opportunity to test our systems on a larger scale. This is a very important step toward system commercialization of algae technology.”

“The Shenandoah algae project is an opportunity to help the environment, the ethanol industry and the Iowa economy,” Becker stated. “Green Plains is committed to the advancement of next generation technologies and we appreciate the vision and assistance of Iowa Governor Chet Culver and the Iowa Office of Energy Independence in the development of this project.”
