LANDFILL GAS PROVIDES 10% OF TOTAL ENERGY NEEDS
Through a partnership with the City of Sioux Falls landfill, landfill gas is collected, compressed and sent to POET for direct use to replace natural gas useage.
SOLID FUEL BOILER PROVIDES 30% OF TOTAL ENERGY NEEDS
The boiler produces steam to run the bioprocessing plant, which is fueled by waste wood. Fuel includes fallen trees, manufacturing waste, old pallets, barn wood and trees infected with Emerald ash borer beetle.
STEAM TURBINE PROVIDES 35% OF ELECTRICAL NEEDS
High-pressure steam produced by the solid fuel boiler creates electricity. The exhaust of the turbine (lowpressure steam) is used as process heat in the plant.
