About Green Plains Renewable Energy:
GPRE is currently building two 50 million gallon name-plate ethanol facilities in Iowa. The first is being built in Shenandoah, Iowa. The second is being built near Superior, Iowa. Start-up of the Shenandoah plant is expected in mid-2007. The Superior plant is anticipated to begin production in the later part of 2007. Once both plants are completed, the Company anticipates that it will have approximately 110 million gallons of ethanol production (10% over name-plate) near the end of 2007. The Company intends to expand the production capacity at both of these plants in the future and intends to build other plants at other locations.
