On Wednesday, March 19, U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) stopped by our algae production facility in Shenandoah, Iowa. Senator Whitehouse brought his climate change message to Iowa, at the invitation of Iowa State Senator Rob Hogg, also a strong supporter of action on climate change. 

The visit to Shenandoah included a tour of the Green Plains ethanol plant, followed by a tour of the BioProcess Algae facility so Senator Whitehouse could see how our algae facility uses the CO2 from the ethanol production process.
