POET plants have reduced water use by a total of 411 million gallons of water per year compared to 2009 levels thanks to widespread installation of the company's Total Water Recovery technology. That savings means POET plants on average now use 2.77 gallons of water per gallon of ethanol. With startup of systems at POET plants in Mitchell, S.D.; Ashton, Iowa; and Portland, Ind., POET is nearly halfway to its goal of saving 1 billion gallons of water annually by 2014, which would mean using 2.33 gallons of water per gallon of ethanol produced. "I'm proud that in each of the 23 years we've been in business, we've been able to improve the environmental performance of ethanol production", POET CEO Jeff Broin said. "Water is one of the most important resources on our planet. We will continue to find ways to maximize that resource and other resources in our ongoing work to be as efficient as we can be."
