2017 BIO World Congress on Industrial Biotechnology Awards POET’s Jeff Broin 10th annual George Washington Carver Award for Innovation in Industrial Biotechnology

Submitted by on July 10, 2017 – 6:09 pmNo Comment

(Biotechnology Innovation Organization)  For those in the biofuels industry, the 2017 BIO World Congress on Industrial Biotechnology is a must. This year’s World Congress will feature a 12-session Advanced Biofuels and Biorefinery Platforms track, covering everything from new technologies in the biofuels space to how to protect innovations in the face of uncertain public policy.

In advance of this event, BIO recently awarded POET Founder, Chairman and CEO Jeff Broin the 10th annual George Washington Carver Award for Innovation in Industrial Biotechnology. Broin will accept the award and deliver remarks during a morning plenary session of this year’s World Congress on Monday July 24, 2017.

Broin has led the growth of POET over 30 years, starting with a small 1-million-gallon facility. POET currently has a network of 28 biorefineries in 7 states with 1,800 team members, which annually generates revenues of about $6.5 billion and produces 1.8 billion gallons of ethanol, 10 billion pounds of distiller’s grain and 600 million pounds of corn oil.

POET’s contributions to the industrial biotechnology sector include the patented BPX process, which uses enzymes to reduce heat in the ethanol production process and drastically lowers the plant’s energy needs. POET worked with biotech partners to incorporate additional enzyme developments that enable greater process efficiencies. POET also has been a pioneer in cellulosic ethanol. POET researched for years in its labs and at a pilot-scale facility to develop a process that uses corn stover to produce ethanol. POET-DSM, a joint venture with the Dutch life and biosciences company Royal DSM, built their first commercial-scale cellulosic ethanol plant and opened it in 2014.

With 12 sessions and dozens of speakers on Advanced Biofuels and Biorefinery Platforms track, the 2017 BIO World Congress is a can’t-miss.  Click here to register!
