Green Plains Renewable Energy, Inc. Moving Forward With Plans for Second 50-Million Gallon Ethanol Plant Following Recent Funding and Grants Announces New Featured "Green" Company and Its Expansion Plans for Producing Environmentally Beneficial Alternative Fuel

POINT ROBERTS, WA and DELTA, BC--Aug 24, 2006 -- Green technology investor portals and announce the addition of a new featured ethanol company, Green Plains Renewable Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ:GPRE). The Company is currently building a 50-million gallon nameplate ethanol facility in Shenandoah, Iowa, expected to be operational in mid 2007. Following the recent $47 million secondary offering, the Company is moving forward with a second 50-million gallon facility to be built near Superior, Iowa, with start up expected late 2007. With the completion of both plants, Green Plains will have approximately 110 million gallons of ethanol production capacity (assuming production of 10% over nameplate capacity) by the end of 2007.

Green Plains Renewable Energy also recently announced that the Iowa Department of Economic Development awarded tax incentives and $400,000 in grants and zero interest loans to assist in the development of the second ethanol plant to be built near Superior, Iowa.

According to, "This year, the U.S. ethanol industry will grow to provide more than 5 billion gallons of clean burning, renewable fuel." Industry growth has been sparked in part by federal and state policies promoting cleaner air and federal and state tax and production incentives. Green Plains has aggressive plans to expand the production capacity at both plants and also intends to build additional plants at other locations as they work to help meet the rising demands for alternative fuels.

GPRE's President and CEO Barry Ellsworth believes that the high price of oil and increased demand for petroleum on a world-wide basis will continue to drive the demand for ethanol in the future. He has also stated that he believes there is tremendous value in the shares of GPRE when compared to the valuations being given to other companies in the ethanol space. "With only about 6 million shares currently issued and outstanding, once the Company's first two plants are completed and operational, each share of GPRE's common stock will represent approximately 18.3 gallons of 2008 projected ethanol production, which the Company believes reflects significant comparative value," explains Mr. Ellsworth.

The Company's dry-grind ethanol facilities will incorporate the latest process control systems and biotechnology to maximize production yields and quality. The facility is designed to result in reduced plant emissions using efficient and environmentally friendly technology.

Demand for Environmentally Friendly and Cost Effective Alternative Fuel Sources Creates Need for Reliable Hydrogen Technology - Presents an Online Audio Interview with Alchemy Enterprises to Discuss their Magnesium Based Hydrogen-On-Demand Fuel System

POINT ROBERTS, Wash., Delta B.C., August 10, 2006 - (RES) a leading investor and industry portal for the renewable energy sector presents an exclusive online audio interview with Jonathan Read, President and CEO of Alchemy Enterprises, Inc. (OTCBB: ACHM). In this interview Mr. Read discusses the development of the Company’s electric vehicle system, their relationship with Jet Propulsion Laboratories, in addition to a look at factors within the renewable energy market that are creating opportunities for Alchemy and its technology.

In addition to the nation’s quest for energy independence, there continues to be a significant push to preserve and protect our environment. There is evidence of support for this on a variety of levels including the recent climate pact signed by British Prime Minister Tony Blair and California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in an attempt to reduce greenhouse gas emissions caused in large part by fossil fuels. As a result, the nation and the energy market is embracing alternative technologies in particular within the transportation sector.

As Jonathan Read explains, “The greatest emphasis and perhaps the most enthusiasm lies in the use of hydrogen as an alternative fuel source. The problem with hydrogen has always been that it is a volatile and unstable gas, and hence problems in its transportability, explosiveness, and volatility in terms of leakage. We are using magnesium as our base product in our reactor. Of extreme importance is that the magnesium, when it is used in our system, is recaptured and can be recycled and used in our system within a 24 hour period as a fuel catalyst for us. In that regard and considering that we produce no emissions, no toxins, no explosive materials and no flammable materials, we are really disrupting hydrogen technology as we know it and replacing it with magnesium, power-on-demand, hydrogen-on-demand, for the hydrogen systems that are in place.”

Alchemy is in a unique position through their relationship with NASA and JPL as they work on the development of their fuel cell system. “Jet Propulsion Labs is a joint venture between NASA and Caltech and are under a task plan with us whereby they undertake all the research, development, prototype development, testing and ultimate construction of the first prototype under our auspices. We in essence have the resources of one of the largest and most successful research and development labs in the world working on our product,” explains Read. This relationship has recently expanded as JPL, through Caltech, has become an eight percent shareholder in Alchemy.

From a market perspective Alchemy has identified the public transportation as their primary target. “It is clear that our system has the best potential for both cost-savings and environmental savings so we are looking first at the public transportation sector and that would be quickly followed on by delivery vehicles such as Federal Express, UPS, US Postal Service and followed thereafter by widespread use in automobiles.”

Alchemy is also planning in the future to work with ‘major oil’ offering them Alchemy’s fuel and fuel recycling systems to be used in their distribution network.

In terms of the initial launch of Alchemy’s product, the Company expects to have their first major city bus, equipped with their power cell technology, on the road in the first quarter of 2007.
