What should Clean Cities and Government fleet managers know about Gevo? We are going after the whole gallon of gasoline. Beyond our 50-percent-renewable gasoline (RG50) we are developing a 100-percent-renewable gasoline to help fleet managers address their greenhouse-gas reduction goals cost-effectively. In addition to on-road solutions, Gevo also produces renewable jet fuel for those municipalities who need to reduce the greenhouse gases associated with aircraft and soon intends to have an alcohol-derived low-carbon renewable diesel free of particulates and sulfur.
