Biorefinery of the Future

The Biorefinery of the Future


As technology continues to develop, we believe we will see an increase in the variety of feedstocks coming in and products going out of biorefineries. These “Biorefineries of the Future” might use feedstocks such as corn, crop residue, wood chips, methane from landfills and other inputs. Each feedstock could help produce different products, including ethanol, DDGS, carbon dioxide, corn oil, specialty protein, specialty chemicals and biopolymers, among other things.

Some of these capabilities already exist in POET plants, others are in development, and others are still being assessed.
