POET is one of the world's largest ethanol producers, with a 25-year history as an American renewable fuel pioneer. The company, with 27 grain ethanol plants, has expertise in organizing feedstock availability, conditioning and storage.
DSM has a proven track record in scaling up industrial and biotechnological operations and has a leadership position in conversion technologies (yeast and enzymes) for cellulosic biomass to ethanol. We are the only company that can co-ferment all C6 and C5 sugars (xylose & arabinose).
POET-DSM Advanced Biofuels builds on the strengths of both companies to create a joint venture with a critical mission - making cellulosic bio-ethanol competitive with grain ethanol, the most competitive renewable liquid transportation fuel on the market today.
