August 25, 2021

OMAHA, Neb., Aug. 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Green Plains Inc. (NASDAQ: GPRE) today announced its wholly owned subsidiary Green Plains Mount Vernon LLC has broken ground on the construction of Fluid Quip Technologies’ MSC™ system. Mount Vernon is the fourth Green Plains location to install MSC™ and is expected to be completed in 2022.

“We are continuing the transformative rollout of our plan to deploy Ultra-High Protein production across our entire platform,” said Todd Becker, president and chief executive officer of Green Plains. “Each groundbreaking further demonstrates the continued execution of our multi-year transformation to the biorefinery platform of the future, creating sustainable ingredients that matter, to help meet growing global protein demand.”

Installation of the Mount Vernon MSC™ system is expected to take nine to 12 months. It will have the capacity to produce approximately 54,000 tons of Ultra-High Protein feed annually and is expected to increase capacity of renewable corn oil – a crucial low-carbon feedstock for renewable diesel – by 50%. Once Mount Vernon is online, Green Plains will surpass 250,000 tons of Ultra-High Protein production annually and provide customers with internal redundancy unequaled by other corn-based protein producers.
