In South Dakota, 14 plants have now installed POET’s patent-pending corn oil technology, bringing total annual production capacity to approximately 235 million pounds per year, enough to provide feedstock for approximately 31 million gallons of biodiesel. POET has been selling Voilà corn oil into biodiesel and feed markets since January 2011, and strong demand for the product has prompted plans to upgrade the majority of the plants in the POET network.
The following POET Biorefining plants have adopted the technology: Hudson (S.D.); Ashton, Coon Rapids, Corning, Emmetsburg, Gowrie, Jewell and Hanlontown (IA); Laddonia (MO); Lake Crystal and Glenville (MN); and Big Stone, Hudson and Groton as well as the POET Research Center in Scotland (SD).
A video Q&A is available on YouTube with more details about Voilà.
