POETPOET officials broke ground Friday for their third ethanol production facility in Indiana, this one near North Manchester.

According to POET
, the 65 million gallon per year facility will be one of the most environmentally friendly ethanol production facilities in operation today.

It will utilize proprietary technology from POET, like the patent-pending BPX process that eliminates cooking in ethanol production and reduces energy use by as much as 15 percent in comparison with conventional plants. The plant will recycle all water used in the ethanol production process and will be outfitted with a regenerative thermal oxidizer that eliminates up to 99.9 percent of air emissions.
