Gevo: an ‘advanced biofuels’ start-up Founded 2005, based in Englewood, Colorado Experienced & successful management team-over 150 years of experience in large scale industrial bioprocessing and renewable chemicals, fuels, plastics 1 million gallon per year demo plant in St. Joseph, MO with ICM >169 patents & applications including exclusive licenses from Caltech, UCLA (isobutanol pathway) and Cargill (cellulosic sugars) St. Joseph, MO Englewood, CO
A “biorefinery”: renewable fuels and chemicals Biology Corn Fuels & Blendstocks Octene Octane Av Gas Gasoline Jet Diesel Fermentation & Purification Chemical Processing Sugar Feedstock Bioprocessing Ag Residues Wood Isobutanol Isobutylene Energy Crops Chemicals PET Acrylic Rubber Lubricants Additives Fuel Blendstocks Chemicals Solvents
Biomass to Hydrocabons gevo Grain Fermentation & Bioprocessing Hydrocarbon Processing Sugar Feedstock Blendstocks & Fuels Ag Residues Wood Chemical Processing Isobutanol Isobutylene Energy Crops Chemicals and Materials Solvents Chemicals Gevo’s Integrated Fementation Technology GIFT®
Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions (Well to Wheels) gevo 1st generation cellulose to Gevo fuel Optimized cellulose or grain Gevo fuel Values based on GREET model by Argonne National Laboratory except for “Grain to Isobutanol with Biomass Heat/Energy “ based on Econergy Study for ICM. Ethanol values converted to Gevo hydrocarbon basis using the energy requirement for Gevo hydrocarbon manufacture compared to the energy requirement for ethanol.
The benefits of Isobutanol as an oxygenate gevo Isobutanol Lowers RVP in Gasoline E10 Benefits: Lower RVP = easier to meet clean air act Higher Energy Density= greater miles/gallon Lower oxygen content = possibility for higher add’n rates Lower water solubility = add at the refiner or blender
gevo Gevo Jet Fuels-Designed to Drop in C12 isoparaffins Higher Flash point Lower Freezing point 100% Renewable Carbon Ultra-low sulfur C16 isoparaffins GC-FID Agilent 7890A, DB-5 column, temperature program started at 40 °C heated up at 10 °C/min to 240 °C
