COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to the economic fallout of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are forced to make some operational changes. Beginning in the next few weeks, POET Biorefining-Ashton will temporarily idle production.
POET has faced difficult times in the past and we have proven our resiliency. We value the partnership and relationship we have with all of our producers and look forward to getting back to normal operations. In the meantime, please reach out to your POET Grain representative if you have questions.
POET Biorefining, located in Ashton, IA, produces 56 million gallons of ethanol annually and is the 18th ethanol plant built by POET Design & Construction and the 12th plant to be managed by POET who began building ethanol plants in the 1980s. With cooperation of the many local leaders and in partnership with members of the agricultural community and the state political leadership, POET Biorefining is excited to bring more value-added agriculture to the state of Iowa.
Ethanol production by POET Biorefining consumes about 16 million bushels of corn from the region and provides not only an environmentally friendly fuel, but also a valuable high quality livestock feed for local, regional and national markets.
POET Biorefining began full production in April 2004.
