<h2><b>GEVO has developed bio-based alternatives to petroleum-based products , Isobutanol .</b></h2>

Gevo is headquartered in Englewood, Colorado, and produces isobutanol, ethanol and high-value animal feed at its fermentation plant in Luverne, Minnesota. Gevo also operates a biorefinery in Silsbee, Texas, that converts alcohols into products such as renewable jet fuel, octane and ingredients for plastics, including polyester. Gevo’s isobutanol is then either sold directly into drop-in markets such as specialty chemicals and gasoline blendstocks, or converted into direct replacement hydrocarbon products such as jet fuel, isooctane and ingredients for polyester. Gevo has been operating a biorefinery to convert isobutanol into these hydrocarbon products with South Hampton Resources in Silsbee, Texas, since 2011.


Why Isobutanol?

Isobutanol is attractive because of its potential as a platform molecule that can serve very large markets such as jet fuel, isooctane, plastics, fibers, and specialty chemicals. The value added properties of isobutanol, including high energy, low vapor pressure, compatibility with engines and compatibility with petrochemical infrastructure, also make it an attractive gasoline blendstock.
