#9 Gevo Adopts DSM’s eBOOST Yeast for Ethanol

In Colorado, Gevo has adopted Royal DSM’s new eBOOST yeast at its production facility in Luverne, MN for the enhanced production of ethanol. “We were pleased to have worked with Royal DSM to trial its eBOOST™ solution as part of its commercialization phase. We liked the results we saw, so we are adopting eBOOST going forward for the production of ethanol. While we are continuing to aggregate demand for isobutanol, jet fuel, and isooctane with a view to building out large capacity for those products, ethanol production is the key to driving profitability in the near term. We can see the path to profitability. Adopting technologies such as eBOOST is one of the steps on that path. We look forward to continued work with Royal DSM,” said Patrick Gruber, CEO, Gevo, Inc.
