ENGLEWOOD, Colo., May 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gevo, Inc. (NASDAQ: GEVO) will once again provide its sustainable and renewable alcohol-to-jet fuel (ATJ) to Avfuel Corporation. Available May 15-18, operators with prior commitments that are flying from Sheltair at Farmingdale, New York’s Republic Airport (KFRG) to EBACE—the annual European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition, held in Geneva, Switzerland—will be filling up with the sustainable fuel.
“We are once again happy to support our North American partner, Avfuel, who to date has received commitments from high-profile OEMs including Bombardier, Embraer, Gulfstream and Dassault to use our ATJ blended with standard jet fuel. This blend not only meets ASTM D1655, but also for every one million gallons produced, approximately 10 million pounds of animal feed and protein goes back into the food chain.” says, Patrick R. Gruber, Gevo’s Chief Executive Officer.
Gevo is a next generation “low-carbon” fuel company focused on the development and commercialization of renewable alternatives to petroleum-based products. Low-carbon fuels reduce the carbon intensity, or the level of greenhouse gas emissions, compared to standard fossil-based fuels across their lifecycle. The most common low-carbon fuels are renewable fuels. Gevo is focused on the development and production of mainstream fuels like gasoline and jet fuel using renewable feedstocks that have the potential to lower greenhouse gas emissions at a meaningful scale and enhance agricultural production, including food and other related products. In addition to serving the low-carbon fuel markets, through Gevo’s technology, Gevo can also serve markets for the production of chemical intermediate products for solvents, plastics, and building block chemicals.
