We are pleased to host Pat Gruber – CEO of Gevo Inc. (GEVO) – in our Water Tower Research Fireside Chat Series. The topic will be the concept of Net-Zero Projects for the production of energy-dense liquid hydrocarbons using renewable energy and Gevo’s proprietary technology. The concept of a Net-Zero Project is to convert renewable energy (photosynthetic, wind, renewable natural gas, biogas) from a variety of sources into energy-dense liquid hydrocarbons, that when burned in traditional engines, have the potential to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across the whole lifecycle of the liquid fuel: from the way carbon is captured from the atmosphere, processed to make liquid fuel products, and including the end use (burning as a fuel for cars, planes, trucks, and ships).
Gevo, Inc. is a next-generation “low-carbon” fuel and chemical company focused on the development and commercialization of renewable alternatives to petroleum-based products. The company sells renewable jet fuel, gasoline hydrocarbons, and isobutanol, which have been shown to have superior performance relative to petrochemical-based fuels including higher energy, clean-burning, and lower particulates. GEVO has already proven that its proprietary process works at a commercial scale. As such, the company believes it has been de-risked in many aspects and at a key inflection point to move into commercial-scale production serving a significant total available market (TAM).
