POET Further Commits to Cellulosic Ethanol

South Dakota-based ethanol producer POET announced yesterday the creation of a new division devoted to managing supply and logistics of next-generation biofuel feedstocks.

POET CEO Jeff Broin made the announcement at the Fuel Ethanol Workshop & Expo in Denver, Colorado. The division of POET will be responsible harvesting and transporting corn cobs — POET’s cellulosic feedstock — as well as waste wood and other feedstocks to be used for cellulosic ethanol and alternative energy projects at the company's production facilities.

Among the areas of focus for POET Biomass are: Cob collection/supply chain management; logistics for waste wood and engineered fuels as alternative power sources; and additional feedstocks for future cellulosic ethanol production.

POET’s pilot-scale plant in Scotland, South Dakota is already producing cellulosic ethanol at a rate of approximately 20,000 gallons per year, and plans are on schedule for 25 million gallons per year of commercial production in Emmetsburg, Iowa in 2011.
