Gevo Sells Renewable Jet Fuel to NASA

Submitted by on April 7, 2015 – 5:16 pmNo Comment

(Gevo/Biomass Magazine)  Gevo Inc. has announced that the National Aeronautics and Space Administration has purchased Gevo’s renewable alcohol-to-jet fuel (ATJ) for aviation use at the NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio. Gevo’s ATJ is manufactured at its demonstration biorefinery located in Silsbee, Texas, using renewable isobutanol produced at its Luverne, Minnesota, isobutanol plant. The biorefinery, where Gevo also produces bioparaxylene and bioisooctane, is operated in conjunction with South Hampton Resources.

“Through testing initiatives, partners such as Lufthansa and the U.S. military are looking to certify our ATJ and accelerate its full-scale commercialization. ATJ from Gevo’s isobutanol is a clean burning, homegrown, drop-in jet fuel enabling a route to deliver aviation biofuels at scale and at a competitive cost,” Gruber added.  READ MORE
