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-Coon Rapids 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 just outside of Coon Rapids, Iowa, is a 54 million gallon per year producer of fuel grade ethanol. This value-added project represents a $55 million dollar investment of farmer-owners. We began operations in August of 2002.

Value-added processing of corn products is an important key to expanding the market potential for Iowa corn. Ethanol reduces foreign oil imports, improves air quality, creates rural American jobs, boosts local economies, and improves corn producer profitability.

POET Biorefining - Coon Rapids, designed and built by POET Design & Construction, is one of the most energy-efficient, labor-efficient, and microbiologically-efficient ethanol production facilities in the U.S. We have over 450 producer and non-producer investors.
