Cellulosic Bioethanol

POET-DSM Advanced Biofuels

Innovation image

Fossil fuels are not endless. To stimulate the sustainable development of the transportation and logistics sectors, a joint-venture of Royal DSM and POET, LLC developed a cost-competitive fuel that cuts emissions, creates jobs and improves energy security. The companies initiative 'Advanced Biofuels' is the first commercial-scale cellulosic ethanol plant that has opened for business. Their revolutionary technology converts agricultural residue into renewable fuel. This process takes place in both companies' plant where baled corn cobs, leaves, husk and stalk are converted into renewable fuel. This development marks a huge step forward in the wider adoption of biofuels.
