Gevo Inc. is a NARA affiliate organization. With NARA, they are developing a yeast biocatalyst that makes isobutanol from simple sugars derived from wood residuals. In addition, they work with NARA’s techno-economic team to determine the costs involved with producing isobutanol and the conversion of isobutanol to biojet.
Biofuels Digest just published a brief review that describes Gevo’s technologies and their recent advances and challenges.
