POET-DSM Advanced Biofuels.

Two innovative companies. One shared vision.

What forces will shape the world to come? How can technology fuel the future, when the economy clings to ideas of the past? Where is the next advancement in renewable, yet accessible energy coming from?

Cellulosic bio-ethanol -- renewable fuel made from agricultural residue -- can provide the answer to many of these questions.

And with the goal of making cellulosic bio-ethanol a viable commercial reality, two innovative companies have come together to form one visionary partnership:
