ABOUT POET RESEARCH, INC.
At POET Research, Inc. our vision is to discover and deliver a robust portfolio of high value process and product innovations that utilize renewable resources as effectively as possible.
The POET Research Center (PRC) is a unique plant within POET and requires unique leadership. PRC is the original POET plant and over the last 32 years has transformed from the original biorefinery to a research center. Although small in size compared to today’s biorefineries, PRC is large in its contributions to POET. The plant continues to operate as a biorefinery but now mainly operates to be a key step in POET’s innovation delivery process. The PRC General Manager manages the overall facility and in addition has responsibility for the process development team within POET Research. The process development team consists of engineers whose mission is to rapidly and effectively scale up technology for commercial deployment.
The PRC General Manager must minimize the cost of operations of the facility while maximizing its technology development efforts. Teamwork is essential, not only within the PRC team but also with other POET companies. Technology development and commercialization efforts involve all POET companies and projects at PRC are frequently the focal point of collaboration efforts.
The PRC General Manager also frequently represents POET with external collaborators. Developing collaborative relationships while focusing on commercialization and project confidentiality is essential.
