Company at a Glance


For more than two decades, POET has defined the art of biorefining. We have grown from a single, humble refinery in Scotland, South Dakota, to one of the world’s largest producers of ethanol and other biorefined products.

With products like our Dakota Gold distillers grains, Voila™ corn oil and INVIZ™ zein, we are using that same innovative spirit to develop natural, renewable food sources and alternatives to petrochemicals.

We have an integrated business model that combines technology development with expertise in construction, operations, risk management and marketing.

Our engineers and scientists have developed technology and processes through rigorous testing at POET’s laboratories and pilot-scale plant.

While the scope of our vision has grown, we remain focused on reducing the reliance of the United States on foreign energy, to revitalizing global agriculture, and providing a cleaner, affordable alternative to fossil fuels.

At POET, we believe our future looks so much brighter above the ground!
