ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Dec. 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gevo, Inc. (NASDAQ: GEVO) Avfuel Corporation—a global supplier of aviation fuel and services—has begun delivery of Gevo’s sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to Bombardier for new customer aircraft deliveries in Canada.
“We are committed to playing our role in making SAF a reality in the marketplace—one of the best ways to do that at the moment is by demonstrating its use,” said C.R. Sincock, executive vice president for Avfuel. “By capitalizing on opportunities to work with leading OEMs, Avfuel can help business aviation attain its sustainability goals. We appreciate Bombardier for its collaboration in this initiative and for our continued partnership with Gevo.”

Bombardier Press Release:
Gevo is commercializing the next generation of gasoline, jet fuel and diesel fuel with the potential to achieve zero carbon emissions, addressing the market need of reducing greenhouse gas emissions with sustainable alternatives. Gevo uses low-carbon renewable resource-based carbohydrates as raw materials, and is in an advanced state of developing renewable electricity and renewable natural gas for use in production processes, resulting in low-carbon fuels with substantially reduced carbon intensity (the level of greenhouse gas emissions compared to standard petroleum fossil-based fuels across their lifecycle). Gevo’s products perform as well or better than traditional fossil-based fuels in infrastructure and engines, but with substantially reduced greenhouse gas emissions. In addition to addressing the problems of fuels, Gevo’s technology also enables certain plastics, such as polyester, to be made with more sustainable ingredients. Gevo’s ability to penetrate the growing low-carbon fuels market depends on the price of oil and the value of abating carbon emissions that would otherwise increase greenhouse gas emissions. Gevo believes that its proven, patented technology enabling the use of a variety of low-carbon sustainable feedstocks to produce price-competitive low carbon products such as gasoline components, jet fuel, and diesel fuel yields the potential to generate project and corporate returns that justify the build-out of a multi-billion dollar business.
