Next-Generation Biodiesel Takes the Carbon Out of Commercial Applications

Gevo is capable of producing low-carbon, renewable diesel, and it’s coming at the right time to meet increased demand since the Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS) and California’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) went into effect.

  • Gevo uses a proprietary, breakthrough process to convert low-carbon isobutanol or low-value “fusel oils”—a mixture of alcohols that are byproducts from fermentation processes—into renewable diesel fuel.
  • This process makes renewable diesel with reduced particulates and CO2
  • This biodiesel will suit boaters and cruisers, since the marine sector will have to reduce sulfur emissions to meet new international water regulations beginning in 2020.
  • The renewable diesel is expected to compete head-to-head on price with natural and petroleum-based equivalents.
