The Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway (BNSF)has recognized eight POET plants with the Annual Product Stewardship Award for their records of safe transport. BNSF presents the award to shippers who transport a minimum of 500 loaded tank cars of hazardous materials during the previous year with zero non-accident incidents. Earlier this year, several plants received a safety award from Union Pacific.
“We are proud that our partnership with BNSF has helped keep transport of ethanol safe and efficient,” said, POET CEO Jeff Broin. “These POET plants work hard to ensure that safety remains a top priority.”
POET Biorefining plants in South Dakota recognized in the award are Chancellor, Mitchell, Big Stone City, Groton, Scotland, and Hudson. POET plants in Iowa are Coon Rapids and Corning.
