ACE 08An update on POET’s cellulosic ethanol Project Liberty is on the agenda for next week’s American Coalition for Ethanol conference in Omaha.

Larry Ward, Vice President of Project Development for POET, will provide the update during the general session on Wednesday afternoon. Range Fuels and ICM will also update the session on their own cellulosic projects.

Project LIBERTY, the transformation of a 50 MGPY grain-to-ethanol plant in Emmetsburg, Iowa into an integrated corn-to-ethanol and cellulose-to-ethanol biorefinery, is jointly funded by POET and the United States Department of Energy. Once complete, the facility will produce 125 million gallons of ethanol per year, of which 25 million gallons will be from the cellulose in corn fiber and corn cobs.
