Agriculture Secretary Vilsack to Visit Algae Biofuels Plant in Southwest Iowa and Discuss Renewable Energy Future in Rural America

 

WASHINGTON, April 13, 2011 – FRIDAY, April 15, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack will travel to Shenandoah, Iowa, to give remarks at the grand opening of the BioProcess Algae Phase II Grower Harvester TM Bioreactor Project. BioProcess Algae was created to commercialize advanced photo-bioreactor technologies for the growing and harvesting of algal biomass. Later in the day on FRIDAY, the Secretary will also speak to the Shenandoah Chamber and Industry Association Annual Meeting about how USDA is focused on stimulating growth, creating jobs, and setting in place a framework for a robust future for the rural economy, which includes support of next-generation renewable energy.

 

The Obama administration is focused on building a cleaner, safer, and more secure energy future – one that ultimately breaks our dependence on foreign oil and moves our nation toward a clean energy economy that creates jobs and keeps America competitive. USDA is helping our nation develop the next generation of biofuels to grow jobs and generate energy from new, homegrown sources. Secretary Vilsack believes that rural America can and must lead America's transition to a clean energy economy.
