What We Do
LOW CARBON RENEWABLE JET FUEL
According to the airline industry itself (IATA), jet fuel demand is expected to grow at about 3 billion gallons per year. The airline industry has committed to holding GHG emissions flat from 2020 and beyond. The airlines have promised to regulate themselves, intending to avoid the high cost of compliance if governments regulate them instead. That’s forward thinking. That’s smart thinking. In order to meet this goal, the industry needs to use low carbon jet fuels in significant quantity. We have one of the few ASTM specified low carbon alternative jet fuels that can be used commercially.
Carbon Source & Energy Source To Eliminate GHG's
Photosynthesis from the Sun
Reduced in Atmosphere
By eliminating fossil carbon from both raw materials and processes, it is possible to eliminate GHG’s from business system
TARGETING A GROWTH MARKET: JET FUEL
World Jet Fuel Demand
The aviation industry is expected to double in passengers over the 20 years to 2034
The aviation industry accounts for 2% of GHG emissions (about the same as all of Germany), but it is expected to grow to 3% by 2050
Lower Carbon Fuels-What is Possible?
FLY GREEN, FUELED BY GEVO
Gevo ATJ was used throughout O’Hare International Airport in Chicago on November 8, 2017 for Fly Green Day. Over 20 companies participated. This proved that normal infrastructure can be used for our cleaner, better, renewable, jet fuel.
