Wood Waste to Use Gevo's Jet Fuel in First Ever Test Flight Flown
Jun 4 15
Gevo, Inc. announced a breakthrough to its fermentation technology that will allow it to produce isobutanol from cellulosic feedstocks such as wood
waste which can then be converted into Gevo's alcohol-to-jet fuel. The process announced uses forest residuals – the wood scraps that are left over from logging operations – providing a value creating recycling opportunity for waste wood that is traditionally left in the forest, potentially becoming a forest fire hazard. The company has previously announced the testing and use of its alcohol-to-jet fuel derived from its corn-based isobutanol in conjunction with major airline partners and the U.S. military. Gevo has adapted its patented Gevo Integrated Fermentation Technology® (GIFT®) to convert the cellulosic sugars from wood into renewable isobutanol. Gevo then uses its patented hydrocarbon technology to convert the cellulosic isobutanol into alcohol-to-jet-synthetic paraffinic kerosene (ATJ-SPK) fuel.
