The company said that for a host of reasons they are focusing on corn fiber and cobs as the first cellulosic feedstock for their production facilities. They also stated that the corn cob has several advantages from an ethanol production perspective. According to POET, "The cob has more carbohydrate content than the rest of the corn plant, giving us the ability to create more ethanol from the cob". "In addition, the cob has higher bulk density than the other parts of the corn stalk, so it is easier to transport from the field to the facility."
