by David Shaffer (Star Tribune)  Gevo Inc., which produces an alternative alcohol in a former ethanol plant in Luverne, Minn., said Monday that the Army has successfully flown a Black Hawk helicopter using a 50-50 blend of jet fuel and the company’s biofuel.

The test flight took place in Alabama last month, but its announcement was delayed while Gevo completed a $23 million secondary stock ­offering, the company’s general counsel, Brett Lund, said in an interview.
