NEW YORK -- Veridium Corp. today announced that its receipt of a $560,000 order from Little Sioux Corn Processors to design and install efficiency upgrades to Little Sioux's Marcus, Iowa, ethanol production facility.

Little Sioux is an innovative farmer-owned ethanol production facility that was commissioned in April 2003 and was designed to produce 40 million gallons of ethanol per year. Facility operators have been able to eliminate processing bottlenecks to allow it to consistently produce more than 50 million gallons of ethanol annually.



Little Sioux continues to implement new processing technologies, and has requested Veridium's assistance in upgrading its processes. The efficiency upgrades are expected to generate an additional $650,000 in annual income for Little Sioux.



Steve Roe, general manager of Little Sioux, said, "Veridium's process engineers have consistently demonstrated their ability to innovate process solutions that enhance our operations, reduce our costs and increase our profits. We are happy to work with them on this project and look forward to working with them in the future."
