GERS Receives Offer To Restart Litigation Against Ethanol Industry...


CleanTech subsequently received an opinion of counsel that its remaining seven of twelve corn oil extraction patents are clearly valid and enforceable, along with a contingency-based offer to restart the infringement litigation from scratch. We are evaluating our rights and remedies in connection with all applicable matters, and we are unable to characterize or evaluate the probability of any outcome at this time




Further, in connection with ongoing patent filings, the USPTO allowed CleanTech’s new corn oil extraction patents after considering the very information that the District Court found to have been withheld, and upon which the bulk of the District Court’s rulings were based. All of the information alleged to have been “knowingly withheld” from the USPTO in connection with the patents in suit was provided to and considered by the USPTO prior to issuance of several additional patents that are not covered by the District Court’s prior rulings (the “New Patents”). The USPTO subsequently disagreed that deception of any kind occurred when, on February 21, 2020, it issued another patent to us after reviewing the very evidence that was allegedly “withheld,” along with everything the defendants ever submitted and claimed, as well as the District Court’s 2014 and 2016 rulings – all in light of the facts that were never presented to a jury. Significantly, the new patent was allowed by the same examiner that the District Court said was deceived. In other words, the same patent examiner that was allegedly deceived looked at the purported evidence and claims of deception, and disagreed that she had ever been deceived. Thus, in issuing that patent, the examiner concluded that the inventive process was not “ready for patenting” in July 2003, that an invalidating “offer for sale” did not occur in July 2003, and that the “ready for patenting” and “offer for sale” information that the District Court determined to have been “deliberately withheld” from the USPTO was immaterial to patentability.

Delek And Green Plains Announce Joint Venture

Delek Logistics and Green Plains Partners Announce Formation of Logistics Joint Venture
Joint venture signs agreement with an affiliate of American Midstream for $138.5 million acquisition

BRENTWOOD, Tenn. and OMAHA, Neb., Feb. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Delek Logistics Partners, LP (NYSE:DKL) ("Delek Logistics") and Green Plains Partners LP (NASDAQ:GPP) today announced the companies have formed DKGP Energy Terminals LLC, ("DKGP") a 50/50 joint venture engaging in the light products terminalling business.



DKGP signed a membership interest purchase agreement to acquire two light products terminals from an affiliate of American Midstream Partners, L.P. These light products terminals are located in Caddo Mills, Texas and North Little Rock, Arkansas. The total purchase price for these assets is $138.5 million in cash. Subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals, this transaction is expected to close in the first half of 2018.
DKGP will consist of the assets purchased from an affiliate of American Midstream and assets contributed by Delek Logistics, with a total value of approximately $162.5 million. Taking into consideration the combination of the assets, synergies and future growth, the joint venture is expected to generate an annualized earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") of approximately $19.2 million in 2019. Immediately prior to the closing of the acquisition by the joint venture of the two terminals from American Midstream, Delek Logistics will contribute to the joint venture its North Little Rock, Arkansas terminal with throughput capacity of 17,100 barrels per day and its Greenville tank farm located in Caddo Mills, Texas with approximately 330,000 barrels of aggregate shell capacity, which will be valued at approximately $24.0 million, along with approximately $57.25 million in cash. Green Plains Partners will contribute approximately $81.25 million in cash to DKGP. The DKGP board will oversee the newly formed joint venture and will appoint an affiliate of Delek Logistics as the operator with day-to-day operational responsibilities for the four terminals.
Uzi Yemin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Delek Logistics' general partner, remarked: "We are excited to partner with Green Plains Partners for its potential ethanol volumes, logistics expertise and industry knowledge as the domestic markets expand blending, and look forward to the future of this joint venture. This is a great opportunity as it fits our strategy to grow through assets in markets that we are very familiar with, and by contributing our complementary existing logistics assets in east Texas and Little Rock, Arkansas, we expect to create additional synergies within the joint venture. In addition to serving third party customers, it should be well positioned to provide additional logistics support to Delek US' Tyler, Texas and El Dorado, Arkansas refineries. Our financial flexibility should give us the ability to finance this investment under our revolving credit facility, while we continue to look for opportunities for future growth."
"This transaction helps us start achieving our goal of diversifying Green Plains Partners revenue and income streams," said Todd Becker, President and Chief Executive Officer at Green Plains Partners. "We believe this joint venture with Delek Logistics creates significant value for both our partnership unitholders and Green Plains Inc. shareholders. We anticipate that this new joint venture will be immediately accretive to earnings and we look forward to building on our relationship with Delek Logistics."
In February 2017, Green Plains Partners and Delek Renewables LLC formed NLR Energy Logistics LLC, a 50/50 joint venture to build an ethanol unit train terminal in the Little Rock, Arkansas area with capacity to unload 110-car unit trains and provide approximately 100,000 barrels of storage. NLR Energy Logistics expects to begin operating the terminal before the end of the first quarter of 2018. NLR Energy Logistics LLC will remain a separate entity from DKGP as described above.
Acquired Asset Summary
The Caddo Mills, Texas terminal can be supplied by a connection with the Explorer Pipeline and by truck and consists of approximately 770,000 barrels of light product storage capacity, five truck loading lanes and ethanol blending capability. Total throughput capacity is approximately 28,000 barrels per day. This terminal is located adjacent to Delek Logistics' Greenville tank farm.
The North Little Rock, Arkansas terminal is supplied by both the Enterprise and Magellan pipelines, rail and truck. It consists of approximately 550,000 barrels of storage capacity, eight truck loading lanes and ethanol blending capabilities. Total throughput capacity is approximately 45,000 barrels per day. Logistics capabilities at this location also include the capability to unload ethanol unit trains. This terminal is located adjacent to Delek Logistics' existing North Little Rock terminal.

Results for the Fourth Quarter of 2017
Net income of $46.6 million, or $0.99 per diluted share
Recognized a total tax benefit of $63.9 million, $52.8 million of which was due to a revaluation of deferred tax liabilities under new U.S. corporate tax laws
Excluding the revaluation of deferred tax liabilities, net loss of $6.2 million, or $(0.16) per diluted share
Record ethanol production of 340.8 million gallons
EBITDA of $36.1 million
Results for the Full Year of 2017
Net income of $61.1 million, or $1.47 per diluted share
Excluding the impact of debt refinancing costs, R&D tax credits and revaluation of deferred tax liabilities, net loss of $33.6 million, or $(0.86) per diluted share
Produced 1.3 billion gallons of ethanol, a 9.5% increase over 2016
EBITDA of $154.4 million
OMAHA, Neb., Feb. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Green Plains Inc. (NASDAQ:GPRE) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter of 2017. Net income attributable to the company was $46.6 million, or $0.99 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2017 compared with net income of $18.7 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, for the same period in 2016. The company recorded a tax benefit of $63.9 million inclusive of a revaluation of deferred tax liabilities under the new U.S. corporate tax laws. Revenues were $921.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2017 compared with $932.1 million for the same period last year.
"Our non-ethanol segments reported strong performance in 2017 with $155 million of EBITDA," commented Todd Becker, president and chief executive officer. "Our Food and Ingredients segment led the way with approximately $50 million of EBITDA, which was more than double what we reported last year, highlighting the success of our diversification strategy. This growth was driven by a full year of results from Fleischmann's Vinegar and the expansion of Green Plains Cattle. We expect an even stronger 2018 from these segments. We also had a strong quarter and finish to the year by the Ag and Energy segment, led by our merchant activities in natural gas."
Green Plains produced a record 340.8 million gallons of ethanol during the fourth quarter of 2017, compared with 334.2 million gallons for the same period in 2016. The consolidated ethanol crush margin was $26.8 million, or $0.08 per gallon, for the fourth quarter of 2017, compared with $81.6 million, or $0.24 per gallon, for the same period in 2016. The consolidated ethanol crush margin is the ethanol production segment's operating income before depreciation and amortization, which includes corn oil production, plus intercompany storage, transportation and other fees, net of related expenses.
"Ethanol margins were weak in the fourth quarter as growth in export demand started to take hold and industry stocks remained high," Becker added. "As a result, we have lowered our ethanol production rate in the first quarter. We believe margins will show improvement as we move into the second quarter, led by robust global demand and stronger domestic demand compared to last year. We believe the U.S. will export record volumes again in 2018 as countries around the world continue to take advantage of the economic benefits of ethanol and blend more into their finished gasoline. The margins for U.S. blenders are the best we have seen since 2014 as wholesale ethanol prices continue to average 40 cents to 50 cents lower than wholesale gasoline with no cheaper competing source of octane."
Revenues attributable to the company were $3.6 billion for the year ended Dec. 31, 2017, compared with $3.4 billion for the same period in 2016. Net income attributable to the company for the year ended Dec. 31, 2017, was $61.1 million, or $1.47 per diluted share, compared with net income of $10.7 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, for the same period in 2016. Excluding the impact of the debt refinancing costs and R&D tax credits, reported in the third quarter of 2017, and revaluation of deferred tax liabilities in the fourth quarter of 2017, net loss attributable to the company was $33.6 million for 2017, or $(0.86) per diluted share.
"We continue to focus on improving the business through operational efficiency and diversification of earnings," said Becker. "Looking forward, we will focus our growth capital in the Food and Ingredients segment and downstream terminal business through our investment and ownership in Green Plains Partners. Our new export terminal in Beaumont, Texas loaded its first export shipment in December and has since loaded eight more vessels originated almost exclusively from our own ethanol production. We expect to offer our interest in Beaumont to the partnership in the next 120 days and believe this terminal will be a key asset that handles the growing export demand for U.S. ethanol. At the same time, domestic ethanol demand should be positively impacted by expanding blends as there are now more than 1,300 stations across 29 states selling E15 and increasing every day."
Full Year Highlights
In March 2017, Green Plains Cattle purchased a 30,000-head cattle feeding operation located approximately 20 miles from Green Plains' Hereford, Texas ethanol facility.

On April 28, 2017, Green Plains Cattle amended its senior secured asset-based revolving credit facility to finance the expanded working capital requirements for its cattle feeding operations. The amendment increased the maximum commitment from $100 million to $200 million until July 31, 2017, when it was increased again to $300 million. The maturity date was extended from Oct. 31, 2017, to April 30, 2020.

On May 16, 2017, Green Plains Cattle completed the acquisition of two cattle feeding operations from Cargill Cattle Feeders, LLC for approximately $37.2 million, excluding working capital. The transaction, supported by a long-term supply agreement with Cargill Meat Solutions, included feed yards located in Leoti, Kan. and Eckley, Colo. and added capacity of 155,000 head to the company's operations.

During the second quarter, Green Plains entered into privately negotiated agreements with holders, on behalf of certain beneficial owners, of the company's 3.25% Convertible Senior Notes due 2018. Under these agreements, the company exchanged approximately 2.8 million shares of its common stock and $8.5 million in cash for approximately $56.3 million in aggregate principal amount of the 2018 notes. The company incurred a non-cash charge of $1.3 million, before taxes, related to the debt extinguishment.

On July 28, 2017, Green Plains' wholly owned subsidiary, Green Plains Trade, amended its senior secured asset-based revolving credit agreement to reduce the interest rate spreads, increase inventory advance rates and expand eligible inventory locations and commodities. The amendment increased the maximum commitment from $150 million to $300 million and extended the maturity date from Nov. 26, 2019, to July 28, 2022.

On Aug. 29, 2017, Green Plains entered into a $500 million term loan agreement, which matures on Aug. 29, 2023, to refinance $405 million of existing debt. The term loan is guaranteed by the company and most of its subsidiaries and secured by substantially all of the company's assets, including its 17 ethanol production facilities, vinegar production facilities and a second priority lien on the assets secured under the revolving credit facilities at Green Plains Trade, Green Plains Cattle and Green Plains Grain.

On Sept. 11, 2017, John Neppl joined the company as chief financial officer of Green Plains and Green Plains Partners, replacing Jerry Peters, who retired. Mr. Peters continues as a member of the board of directors of Green Plains Holdings LLC, the general partner of Green Plains Partners. Mr. Neppl most recently served as chief financial officer of The Gavilon Group, LLC and brings extensive experience in commodity processing and trading businesses.

On Oct. 27, 2017, Green Plains Partners upsized its revolving credit facility by $40.0 million, from $155.0 million to $195.0 million, accessing a portion of the $100.0 million accordion in place on the facility.

On Nov. 16, 2017, Green Plains Cattle amended its senior secured asset-based revolving credit facility with a group of lenders led by Bank of the West and ING Capital LLC. The amendment increased the revolving commitment under the credit facility from $300 million to $425 million with an additional $75.0 million available accordion feature.

In December 2017, the company's joint venture with Jefferson Gulf Coast Energy Partners, JGP Energy Partners, completed Phase I of its intermodal export and import fuels terminal in Beaumont, Texas and loaded multiple vessels with ethanol bound for international destinations. Green Plains plans to offer its 50% interest in the joint venture to the partnership during the first half of 2018.

In December 2017, Syngenta and Green Plains jointly announced a partnership to expand the use of Enogen corn as a portion of the feedstock across Green Plains' 1.5-billion-gallon ethanol production platform.

During the year, the company repurchased 394,677 shares of common stock for approximately $6.7 million.
Results of Operations
Consolidated revenues decreased $11.1 million for the three months ended Dec. 31, 2017, compared with the same period in 2016. Revenues were impacted by lower average realized prices for ethanol, partially offset by an increase in revenues related to the cattle feedlot acquisitions during the first and second quarters of 2017.
Operating income decreased $48.6 million for the three months ended Dec. 31, 2017, compared with the same period last year primarily due to lower ethanol margins.
An income tax benefit of $63.9 million was recorded in the fourth quarter of 2017, including a $52.8 million benefit related to the revaluation of deferred tax liabilities under the new U.S. corporate tax laws.

Brazil Considers Lifting Tariff On U.S. Ethanol...

BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazil is studying the removal of a 20-percent tariff on ethanol imports from the United States, Agriculture Minister Blairo Maggi said on Wednesday, in a decision that could depend on Washington lifting a ban on fresh beef exports from Brazil.
Last year, Brazil imposed a 20-percent tax on ethanol imported from the U.S. that exceeds a 600 million liter annual quota to protect local producers as imports spiked.

Also in 2017, the U.S. banned shipments of fresh beef from Brazil following on a food safety scandal involving bribes paid to inspectors that led to heightened inspections by the U.S. and in turn uncovered potential health risks.

Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Maggi implied that a decision on removing the ethanol import tariff could depend on resolving the dispute on beef exports.

“There is on the part of the United States a big demand to withdraw this (ethanol tariff) and we also have this problem with beef,” Maggi said. “Obviously one thing influences and contaminates the other.”
The ban on fresh beef exports could be lifted by April, Maggi said, when he is expected to step down in order to meet a deadline to run for elected office in October.

Brazil has already submitted all of the material requested by the United States to address concerns over beef exports and is awaiting for the United States to decide whether the issue is resolved, he said.

Japan Opens Up To U.S. Ethanol Imports...

But for now, it’s full-speed ahead to Japan. Omaha-based Green Plains, the second-largest ethanol producer with 17 U.S. plants, figures that Japan will begin importing about 250 million U.S. gallons initially and grow from there as the country increases ethanol usage in an attempt to reduce greenhouse gases by 50 percent in coming years.
“As far as Green Plains, we will certainly work to add it to our list of opportunities and believe that our addition of a Gulf Coast export terminal, which went operational at the start of December, gives us some competitive advantage to Japan and other export markets,” spokesman Jim Stark said.

Trump's EPA Reject's Moving Point of Obligation!$!$!$

The Environmental Protection Agency plans to formally announce the decision within the next two weeks, the official said.

The Trump administration plans to reject a proposal that would let oil refiners off the hook for complying with the federal ethanol mandate, a senior administration official told POLITICO, dashing the hopes of billionaire Carl Icahn and a slew of independent companies.

"President Trump supports the EPA's decision," the official said.

The decision follows through on Trump's campaign promise to support ethanol and leave the mandate intact. Corn staters and ethanol interests have been lobbying hard, arguing that the change would set back an ethanol industry that is vital to some of the states where voters strongly backed Trump.

"Mr. Trump won that election because voters in Iowa and across the heartland, we rose up in support of him," Annette Sweeney, a member of Trump's Agriculture Advisory Council, said in an interview after the election. "Mr. Trump, the time I visited with him, he understood the need for home-grown fuel, the need for cleaner fuel. Here in Iowa, we were some of Mr. Trump’s strongest supporters. And I really think shifting the point of obligation would interrupt America’s progress toward making clean renewable biofuels."

Trump Pumps Ethanol, Reiterates RFS Support...

Trump reiterates support for ethanol, RFS
By Renewable Fuels Association | February 21, 2017


In a letter sent today to National Ethanol Conference attendees in San Diego, President Donald Trump reiterated his unwavering support for ethanol and the Renewable Fuel Standard.
“Rest assured that your president and this administration values the importance of renewable fuels to America’s economy and to our energy independence,” Trump wrote. “As I emphasized throughout my campaign, renewable fuels are essential to America’s energy strategy.”
The president continued, “As important as ethanol and the Renewable Fuel Standard are to rural economies, I also know that your industry has suffered from overzealous, job-killing regulation. I am committed to reducing the regulatory burden on all businesses, and my team is looking forward to working with the Renewable Fuels Association, and many others, to identify and reform those regulations that impede growth, increase consumer costs, and eliminate good-paying jobs without providing sufficient environmental or public health benefit,” Trump added.
“We thank President Trump for reaffirming his support for the domestic biofuels industry and the RFS,” said RFA President and CEO Bob Dinneen. “The RFS has cleaned the air, reduced our dependence on foreign oil and boosted local economies. Donald Trump understands all this. Consumers benefit from this national policy and our industry looks forward to continuing to be the lowest cost, highest octane fuel in the world.”

OMAHA, Neb., Oct. 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Green Plains Inc. (NASDAQ:GPRE) today announced that it has acquired SCI Ingredients Holdings, Inc. (SCI) and its wholly owned operating subsidiary Fleischmann's Vinegar Company, Inc., the world's largest manufacturer and marketer of food-grade industrial vinegar for $250 million, subject to certain post-closing adjustments.

"This strategic acquisition of Fleischmann's Vinegar Company brings a new adjacent business that adds a consistent, growing earnings stream and expands our focus on the food and feed ingredients industry," said Todd Becker, president and chief executive officer of Green Plains. "Our long term strategy is centered around growing our company to take advantage of the rising global demand for energy and food products. The Fleischmann's Vinegar portfolio of products is well positioned beyond food ingredients, ranging from antimicrobials, animal feeds, herbicides and disinfectants to name a few."
"As we approach scale as one of the largest ethanol producers in the world, we have the engine of a significant commodity-processing entity that can generate substantial cash flow, allowing us to enhance the food and feed ingredients side of our business," added Becker.

We will use our commodity and risk management expertise to expand our opportunities into consumer and industrial-based ethanol products."

"I am pleased to welcome Ken Simril, president and CEO of Fleischmann's Vinegar Company, the management group and all of the employees to the Green Plains team," continued Becker. "Under Ken's leadership, Fleischmann's Vinegar has achieved incredible innovation and growth over the last 10 years, focused on adapting its production capabilities to current on-trend consumer needs such as organic, non-GMO, beverages and varietals. Ken will lead our overall global food ingredient growth strategy as we continue to develop areas adjacent to our supply chain. The current management team will continue operating Fleischmann's Vinegar as a standalone business, utilizing their many years of industry and management experience."

Ethanol Breaks Through "Blend Wall" With New Record!$!$!$

According to the latest government report, ethanol's share of the U.S. gasoline market reached a new record of ten-point-two percent last week.

Monte Shaw with the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association says he's not surprised that ethanol has broken through the ten percent so-called "blend wall".

"It's not surprising to those of us in the industry that have seen the growth of higher blends like E15 and E85," says Shaw, "but when Big Oil is out there trying to tell everybody there's this bogus blend wall and we can't get past E10 and all this stuff-I guess a lot of air just got let out of their balloon."

Shaw says the increased availability of E15 is a big factor, with more and more retailers now offering the higher blend.

"Here in Iowa, a couple of years ago, we had ten (E15 outlets). By the end of this year, we should be around 100, and that's just going to keep growing," he says.

Shaw says the next big challenge is to convince the EPA to drop its summertime volatility restrictions on E15, which force many stations to put their E15 sales on hold during the summer months.

"There's no doubt that is probably our number one hurdle in not just selling more E15 from where it's available, but from dramatically increasing the number of retailers who are willing to offer E15."

In addition to industry efforts, a group of seven Midwest governors recently called on the EPA to eliminate the summertime restrictions on E15.

The E15 restrictions expired on September 15th

Green Plains Seeks to Buy ‘Food-Ingredients’ Firm

Omaha-based Green Plains said Tuesday it had signed a letter of intent to buy a company in the “food-ingredients industry.”

Green Plains, which primarily is in the ethanol production and marketing business, said the food-industry purchase would be “complementary” to its existing businesses. It didn’t name the ingredients company, saying only that it had entered into a nonbinding letter of intent with the target firm.

The purchase price is expected to be between $225 million and $275 million, Green Plains said in a government filing. The business would be purchased using cash on hand and debt, according to the filing.


Green Plains said “that as part of its growth strategy it plans to opportunistically invest in the food and feed ingredients market.”

The current discussions are only in the preliminary stages, Green Plains said; if it happens, the transaction could be complete in the third quarter of this year.

Green Plains, which had sales last year of around $3 billion, is No. 742 on Fortune Magazine’s list of the 1,000 largest U.S. companies; its chief executive, Todd Becker, has said he wants it to be Omaha’s next Fortune 500-sized firm.

GPRE: Only Algae Project Awarded DOE Funding

BioProcess Algae Awarded $6.4 Million U.S. Department of Energy Grant to Develop Advanced Drop-in Biofuels for Military Jets and Ships

OMAHA, Neb., April 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioProcess Algae LLC has been selected to receive a grant of up to $6.4 million from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), as part of an innovative pilot-scale biorefinery project related to production of hydrocarbon fuels meeting military specification. The project will use renewable carbon dioxide, lignocellulosic sugars and waste heat through BioProcess Algae's Grower HarvesterTM technology platform, co-located with the Green Plains Renewable Energy, Inc. (Nasdaq:GPRE) ethanol plant in Shenandoah, Iowa.

"BioProcess Algae was the only algae platform chosen to be a part of this project by the DOE," said Todd Becker, President and CEO of Green Plains.

"For this project, we will integrate low-cost autotrophic algal production, accelerated lipid production, and lipid conversion in an effort to develop a cost-effective advanced biofuel for military needs. This development is consistent with our current plans to build the next phase of Grower Harvester reactors in Shenandoah."

The project will demonstrate technologies to cost-effectively convert biomass into advanced drop-in biofuels and the recipient is required to contribute a minimum of 50% matching funds for the project.

GPRE's Oil Extraction License Agreement For GERS' Patents

"We are operating corn oil extraction systems at 9 of our plants, with the tenth expected to come online this year. The corn oil systems we installed are designed to extract non-edible corn oil from the thin stillage evaporation process immediately prior to production of distillers grains. The corn oil product is primarily marketed as a feedstock for biodiesel as well as a supplement to livestock feed.

Other industrial uses for corn oil include feedstock for rubber substitutes, rust preventatives, inks, textiles, soaps and insecticides. Our corn oil is primarily sold to biodiesel manufactures and, to a lesser extent, feed lot and poultry markets. We generally transport our corn oil by truck to locations in close proximity to our ethanol plants, primarily in the southeastern and midwestern regions of the U.S. With our continuous yield improvements we expect to produce over 165 million pounds of corn oil across our platform annually."

Green Plains Renewable Energy to Implement Corn Oil Extraction Technology

OMAHA, Neb., Jul 21, 2010 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX News Network) -- Green Plains Renewable Energy, Inc. (Nasdaq:GPRE) announced today that it will implement corn oil extraction technology at its ethanol plants. The Company expects to complete the technology deployment by the end of the first quarter of 2011 and anticipates the project would enhance operating income by $15 million to $19 million per year.

"Our objective is to continue to diversify our cash flows and to de-risk our overall platform," said Todd Becker, President and Chief Executive Officer of Green Plains Renewable Energy. "This project allows us to realize additional income streams from value-added co-products. The production of 75 million to 90 million pounds of corn oil per year will generate substantial recurring free cash flows and excellent returns on invested capital."

ICM, Inc. has been awarded turn-key installation contracts at five of the Company's six plants. The expected total project cost for all plants is approximately $18 million. The Company anticipates first revenues from corn oil extraction at the Obion, Tennessee plant to occur within the next 90 days.

Green Plains has entered into a license agreement with GS CleanTech Corporation, a subsidiary of GreenShift Corporation, to utilize its patents and pending patents.

GPRE Buys 50 MGY Plant For $15 Million...

What an excellent purchase!$!$!$ How in the heck did GPRE buy this plant for $.30 per gallon of capacity? Margins are darn near $.30 a gallon! I'm dumbfounded! The superior management at GPRE never ceases to amaze me. Excellent work Mr. Becker and team, hats off to you...

"Green Plains Renewable Energy is paying $15 million in cash for a north-central Nebraska ethanol plant, storage and loading facility.

The Atkinson, Neb., plant has been idle since June 2012 and Green Plains said it will staff and re-start the plant within the next month. Green Plains plans to hire 40 to 45 people.

The Omaha-based ethanol producer has signed a purchase agreement to buy the membership interests of Choice Ethanol Holdings LLC, which owns the former NEDAK Ethanol LLC plant in Atkinson. A storage and loading facility located about 15 miles east of the plant were also part of the deal.

Green Plains said that the dry-mill ethanol plant about 200 miles northwest of Omaha will add about 50 million gallons of operating capacity to the company's annual production capacity of 740 million gallons.

President and CEO Todd Becker said in a statement the acquisition expands the company's ethanol production platform and aligns with its strategy of growing the business and enhancing long-term shareholder value.

Marketing and distributing about one billion gallons of ethanol each year, Green Plains is North America's fourth largest ethanol producer.

“The plant meets our disciplined acquisition criteria and we have a deep understanding of this technology, size and geographic area,” Becker said. “We believe we can rapidly improve the overall performance of this plant.”

The company also plans to install corn oil extraction technology by the fourth quarter of 2013.
The Atkinson plant uses Delta-T processing technology. Located on the BNSF rail line, the ethanol storage facility holds about 24,000 barrels of ethanol.

The company, which has ethanol plants in six states, already operates plants elsewhere in Nebraska: Ord and Central City. It also owns a grain storage facility in St. Edward.

Todd Sneller, administrator for the Nebraska Ethanol Board, said he had been concerned the plant could be sold and relocated. Keeping it in Atkinson and run by a Nebraska-based company “is very good news not only for Atkinson, but the state” because it will employ people here, he said."

BioProcess Algae Awarded $6.4 Million U.S. Department of Energy Grant to Develop Advanced Drop-in Biofuels for Military Jets and Ships

http://investor.gpreinc.com/releasedetail.cfm?ReleaseID=758281

OMAHA, Neb., April 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioProcess Algae LLC has been selected to receive a grant of up to $6.4 million from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), as part of an innovative pilot-scale biorefinery project related to production of hydrocarbon fuels meeting military specification. The project will use renewable carbon dioxide, lignocellulosic sugars and waste heat through BioProcess Algae's Grower HarvesterTM technology platform, co-located with the Green Plains Renewable Energy, Inc. (Nasdaq:GPRE) ethanol plant in Shenandoah, Iowa.

"BioProcess Algae was the only algae platform chosen to be a part of this project by the DOE," said Todd Becker, President and CEO of Green Plains. "This project will link our commercial scale platform for growing and harvesting algal biomass with technology partners for conversion into advanced biofuels. While this is a project for the development of drop-in biofuels, we continue to focus our technology for growing and harvesting algae for feed, food or fuel."

"We believe our Grower Harvester platform will be vital in the development of this project with the DOE," added Tim Burns, President and CEO of BioProcess Algae. "For this project, we will integrate low-cost autotrophic algal production, accelerated lipid production, and lipid conversion in an effort to develop a cost-effective advanced biofuel for military needs. This development is consistent with our current plans to build the next phase of Grower Harvester reactors in Shenandoah."

The project will demonstrate technologies to cost-effectively convert biomass into advanced drop-in biofuels and the recipient is required to contribute a minimum of 50% matching funds for the project.

ACE responds to Big Oil's latest Big Stall on the RFS


ACE Executive Vice President Brian Jennings today responded to Big Oil's latest attack on the Renewable Fuel Standard.

"The RFS is not about the oil industry's comfort; it is about providing cleaner American-made alternatives to consumers," said Jennings. "The RFS costs taxpayers nothing and is doing exactly what Congress intended; saving consumers money at the pump and providing them access to affordable blends such as E15. The RFS is also disrupting the lucarative choke-hold oil companies have on the market. As a result, Big Oil is desperate to repeal the RFS this year."

"With respect to the Renewable Identification Numbers (RINs), every time a refiner blends a gallon of gasoline, they get a RIN for free. When they purchase more ethanol than the annual RFS obligation, RINs are a reward and provide value to them. The fact there are 2.5 billion excess RINs available for use in 2013 is proof that over-compliance has been commonplace with oil companies. Refiners only have to buy RINs if they refuse to follow the law, and that's what this is about - they have had more than six years to evolve and comply with the law, but have refused to adapt and change. Most refiners are trying to keep an oversupply of RINs on hand, to be sure that they are able to control the marketplace. The current Big Oil hue and cry isn't about ethanol supply; it is fear of actual competition," said Jennings.

RFA Requests Multi-Agency Investigation Of Oil Industry’s Discriminatory/Unlawful Conduct

http://renewablefuelsassociation.createsend1.com/t/y-l-juttuuy-kjhkhljij-o/


(March 19, 2013) WASHINGTON — In a letter sent today to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the Department of Energy (DoE) and the Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) requested a multi-agency investigation into “the oil industry’s highly discriminatory and unlawful conduct — conduct that is impeding the delivery of renewable fuels to the American marketplace.”

The focus of this letter is a recounting of recent events at Zarco 66, the first marketer in the United States to offer E15.

“The story of a Lawrence, Kansas, fuel station illustrates just how far Big Oil will go to obstruct congressional purposes in enacting the RFS, limit the availability of renewable fuels in the American marketplace, and, not coincidentally, bolster their campaign to repeal the RFS altogether. For many years, a ConocoPhillips franchisee, Zarco 66 Inc. (“Zarco 66”), offered E85 at its fueling station. One of the station’s fuel tanks contained “regular” gasoline and a second tank contained straight ethanol—a tank that might have otherwise been reserved for “premium” gasoline at a more antiquated station. Zarco 66 offered customers E85 by blending the appropriate mixture of gasoline and ethanol straight at the pump—using “blender” pumps that it obtained through a grant administered by the Department of Energy. Because only certain vehicles can use E85, the oil industry likely viewed this alternative fuel as a gimmick—one that posed no real threat to the industry’s monopoly. But shortly after Zarco 66 became the first fueling station in the nation to offer E15—a fuel that can be used in any light-duty vehicle manufactured over the last decade—the oil industry suddenly changed its tune. ConocoPhillips quickly threatened to terminate Zarco 66’s franchise agreement and charge Zarco 66 hundreds of thousands of dollars in penalties unless Zarco 66 started offering “premium” gasoline—gasoline that would replace the ethanol housed in one of Zarco 66’s fueling tanks, and a gasoline that is likely to result in far fewer sales than the ethanol blends that would be available if Zarco 66 maintained the current ethanol contents.

“For franchisees like Zarco 66, the message that the oil industry is delivering is loud and clear: Stop selling renewable fuels, or face the consequences.”

There are several concrete examples of Big Oil running afoul of U.S. laws. For instance, in the Zarco 66 situation, the oil industry is enforcing the unlawful act of “tying” agreements which violate Section 1 of the Sherman Antitrust Act.

“Here, the oil industry is forcing fuel stations to purchase and carry a product that they otherwise do not wish to carry (premium gasoline) as a condition for purchasing and carrying the tying product (regular gasoline). Because franchisees are locked into franchise agreements (and such a lock-in effect is magnified when, as in the case of Zarco 66, the oil franchisor changes the terms of the relationship midstream), an oil franchisor holds appreciable economic power over the franchisee, which it is using to force franchisees to purchase premium fuel that they might not otherwise wish to carry. Moreover, because premium gasoline requires a separate tank that would otherwise hold the ethanol necessary to offer gasoline-ethanol blends (and the oil industry is well-aware that most fuel stations have only two tanks devoted to gasoline), the oil industry is effectively eliminating ethanol competition by tying the sale of premium to regular gasoline.

“In addition, the oil industry’s conduct is contrary to the Gasohol Competition Act of 1980. That legislation makes it unlawful to “unreasonably discriminate[] against or unreasonably limit[] the sale, resale, or transfer of gasohol or other synthetic motor fuel of equivalent usability.” 15 U.S.C. § 26a(a)(2). By enforcing a premium requirement to the exclusion of ethanol blends, the oil industry is unreasonably limiting the sale of E15,…

“Similarly, the oil industry’s actions violate the policies that underlie the Petroleum Marketing Practices Act. By forcing franchisees to purchase premium gasoline, franchisors are acting to preclude franchisees from ‘converting an existing tank or pump on the marketing premises of the franchisee for renewable fuel” in violation of that legislation. See 15 U.S.C. § 2807(b)(1)(B). What is more, the Act was intended to allow franchisees to sell “a renewable fuel in lieu of 1 . . . grade of gasoline.’ Id. § 2807(c). As a result, the oil industry is directly subverting this legislation by making it impossible for franchisees to offer gasoline-ethanol blends higher than E10, such as E85 and biodiesel.”

When Big Oil isn’t busy violating laws, it is busy mocking the intent of others, such as the Energy Policy Act of 2005 and expanded in the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 which details the requirements of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS). “The oil industry has claimed that it cannot meet these standards—in part, because few stations are offering E15 or greater gasoline. But the oil industry need only look in the mirror to determine why that is the case. It is the industry’s own behavior that is limiting E15’s availability. Like a child who breaks all of his pencils and then tells his parents he can’t do his homework, the oil industry should not be permitted to claim the RFS is not achievable when it is deliberately taking steps to stifle the introduction of E15.”

In closing, Bob Dinneen, RFA’s President and CEO, wrote, “Americans want choice at the pump. For all of these reasons, we respectfully request that each of you direct your agencies to investigate and put an end to the oil industry’s highly discriminatory and unlawful conduct—conduct that is impeding the delivery of renewable fuels to the American marketplace. Otherwise, Zarco 66 will simply represent the first casualty in the oil industry’s war against the marketing and delivery of cheaper, more sustainable renewable fuels.”
