Gevo, Inc.’s (Gevo) mission is to produce energy-dense liquid hydrocarbons for drop-in transportation fuels such as gasoline, jet fuel, and diesel. Gevo’s production process uses a combination of decarbonization technologies and sustainably farmed feedstock to produce fuels with substantially reduced carbon intensity (CI) compared to fossil fuel equivalents. We broke ground on our first sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production facility, “Gevo Net-Zero 1” (NZ1), in Lake Preston, SD, in September 2022. This facility will use a three-part strategy to produce low-CI SAF: 1) use locally-sourced corn feedstock from farmers engaged in sustainable agriculture to both reduce on-farm greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and sequester CO2 in the soil; 2) decarbonize the fuel production process by replacing conventional fossil fuel inputs with wind energy, renewable natural gas, and green hydrogen; and 3) use carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) technology to reduce emissions from the production process further. The Gevo approach attempts to decarbonize every step of the fuel’s life cycle.
