POET-DSM joins Advanced Ethanol Council

March 16, 2014 |

In Washington, POET-DSM Advanced Biofuels has joined the Advanced Ethanol Council (AEC).

“As a key player in the industry that has the proven know-how to scale up its advanced technology to commercial scale, POET-DSM is a strong, strategic addition to the Council’s ranks as cellulosic ethanol moves from the development stage to full-scale commercial production in 2014,” said Brooke Coleman, Executive Director of the AEC.

POET-DSM Advanced Biofuels is a joint venture between POET, one of the world’s largest grain-ethanol producers based in Sioux Falls, S.D., and Royal DSM, a Netherlands-based life sciences and material sciences company with expertise in advanced enzymes and yeasts. The company is nearing completion of a cellulosic ethanol biorefinery in Emmetsburg, Iowa, called Project LIBERTY, which will have a 25 million gallon annual capacity.
