What We Do
Feedstocks + Gevo
Our technology has the capability to use almost any carbohydrate feedstock. The advantage of using fermentation technology to produce products that cross over into what has traditionally been the petro-chemical world is that fermentation technology takes the extreme complexity and variability of bio-based raw materials and makes a simple alcohol that is readily converted to chemicals using standard chemical industry techniques.
When choosing a carbohydrate feedstock, we care about cost, carbon footprint, contribution to food and feed, and reliability of availability. We believe in the future that more and varied types of carbohydrate feedstocks will become available as more feedstock technologies mature.
