About POET

Imagination, Discipline and a Lasting Impression.

At POET, we are changing the world for the better while leaving a legacy that promotes health and sustainability through renewable biofuels.

We believe in creativity from common sense. We believe the solution to our nation's growing energy crises is not some far-flung work of science fiction. It's the domestic energy we're producing today. The people of POET are currently replacing millions of barrels of imported oil every year with clean, renewable energy. All while pumping billions of dollars back into the American economy.

In our three decades on the job, POET has developed an unmatched record in technology, reliability and efficiency. That's a legacy we intend to pass on. And every day we keep building on it. Today, we have a network of 33 plants in eight states and produce more than 1.7 billion gallons of biofuels annually.

More important than volume is the efficiency with which we produce our products. POET provides turnkey development, design, engineering, construction, management and marketing services for our plant network. Our facilities are the most successful and profitable in the industry.

Our technologies were developed and refined through years of hard work and collaboration with leaders in clean technology, biochemistry and animal nutrition. As a result, we reap more value from a bushel of corn than anyone.

In addition to biofuels, we've perfected the leading brand of premium dried distillers grains with solubles on the market, Dakota Gold®.

Analytical Research Intern

May 2019 - August 2019 Sioux Falls, SD
“I was given a lot of freedom to plan my days and how I was going to complete my research project. It was also cool to work for a private company and feel the excitement they had for the ethanol industry and commercializing products. My project was also not arbitrary and was producing value for the company. ”
