Farm Journal Exclusive: Equipment to Harvest Cobs for Cash
 
 
Poet CEO Jeff Broin is offering farmers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be a part of "history in the making” with the harvest of corn cobs for cellulosic ethanol production.

 
Corn cobs could soon contribute to the nation's fuel supply. Poet is currently expanding its corn ethanol facility in Emmetsburg, Iowa, into one of the world's first cellulosic ethanol plants. Once complete in 2011, Project Liberty, will produce 125 million gallons of ethanol per year, with 25 million gallons coming from corn cobs.
