Gevo CEO Dr. Patrick Gruber Testifies Before Congress: House Committee on Agriculture 2022 Review of Farm Bill: Energy and Renewable Energy

Dr. Patrick Gruber, CEO of Gevo, Inc., testified on the topics of Energy and Renewable Energy. His testimony put several salient facts before the Committee on Agriculture for the 2022 Review of the Farm Bill. Dr. Gruber testified that, according to the EPA, roughly 75 percent of greenhouse gas emissions come from fossil fuels used...

Gevo Believes Argonne GREET Is the Superior Model

We can’t improve what we don’t measure. No matter how good the science and technology are, if we’re not accounting for all aspects of the emissions from transportation, industrial processes, and agriculture, there is no way to meet the lofty goals needed to protect the planet, nor can participants be appropriately compensated. Life-cycle analysis (LCA),...

Gevo Believes Argonne GREET Counts Carbon Intensity the Best Way We Know How

Argonne GREET was developed to consider carbon intensity related to the energy and environmental effects of fuels and vehicle technologies. The DOE has supported its implementation in the fuel market, and we believe it is the best model for U.S.-based companies. Here’s why: GREET rewards enterprise and ingenuity—when science gains a deeper understanding of how...

How Does the World Treat Key LCA Aspects Compared To Argonne GREET?

Several biofuel regulations and programs have been adopted globally in the past 13 years. They are based on LCA carbon intensities, and some of them have benefited from the GREET model: The California Low-Carbon Fuel Standard (with CA-GREET3.0) The Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation by the UN International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO...

Delta Air Lines Signs 75 Million Gallon Per Year SAF Agreement with Gevo

Gevo has signed a “take-or-pay” agreement with Delta Air Lines, Inc. to supply 75 million gallons of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) per year for seven years. Based on current assumptions, including those around future pricing of commodities and the future values of certain environmental benefits, Gevo estimates that the Agreement should generate approximately $2.8 billion...

World-Class Airline Network oneworld Alliance Shares Plans to Purchase Up to 200 Million Gallons Per Year of SAF from Gevo

Network of world-class airlines oneworld® Alliance and Gevo, Inc. announced today that certain oneworld members plan to purchase up to 200 million gallons per year of sustainable aviation fuel (“SAF”) from Gevo (the “oneworld Alliance SAF Purchase Goal”). The delivery of the SAF is expected to commence in 2027, for a five-year term. Member airlines...

Growing Our Own Energy Independence

Anytime gas prices rise at the pump, people look for a scapegoat. Usually, there’s one to be found, and almost always that scapegoat is not the cause. We Americans have been experiencing the worst inflation in nearly four decades, making every-day goods and especially fuel more expensive, and, at the same time, Russian President Vladimir...

What Gevo Fuels and Processes Leave Out

At Gevo, we build our entire business around sustainability. That’s the whole principle behind our new Net-Zero 1 plant that we’re building in Lake Preston, South Dakota, where we expect to create energy-dense liquid hydrocarbons through processes that are sustainable.

COP26 Has Ended and Now It’s Time for Action—Drop-In Advanced Renewable Fuels Are a Good Start

As we learned from COP26, we’re shooting for Global Net-Zero by 2050. That is an admirable goal, but we’re already falling behind the pace as a planet. We need action now, and in ways that begin to slow the flow of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere in measurable, meaningful amounts, and yet allow us to...

Billions of Gallons of Sustainable Aviation Fuel Will Reduce the Carbon Intensity of Travel

VIDEO: Learn about sustainable aviation fuel and solving the problems of travel and GHG emissions. As travel restrictions are relaxed and people get back to flying like they used to, it’s as clear as the bright blue sky: The market for aviation fuel isn’t going anywhere. That was always one of the most compelling reasons...
