ABOUT POET BIOREFINING
Our 33 biorefining facilities produce 3 billion gallons of bioethanol, 14 billion pounds of Dakota Gold distillers grain animal feed and nearly 1 billion pounds of our Voila corn oil. That’s a lot of product! We also provide plant-based products like CO2 for the food and beverage industry and purified alcohol for use in products ranging from food and beverage ingredients and personal care products to cleaning supplies, hand sanitizer and industrial bioethanol. POET also produces JIVE, a product that contributes to more sustainable roadways by using plant-based ingredients to help recycle old asphalt. We also buy over 930 million bushels of corn per year from local producers. It is our role at POET Biorefining to ensure safe, efficient, and profitable operations at each facility.
