Gevo (NASDAQ: GEVO) this morning said it has received EPA approval for the pathway for isobutanol to be an advanced biofuel under the Renewable Fuel Standard Program (RFS). This development presents an opportunity for Gevo to achieve the 50% or greater greenhouse gas emissions reduction needed to claim the advanced D5 Renewable Identification Number (RIN). Gevo’s isobutanol currently generates D6 RINs, and with this approval, it could generate D5 RINs as well, which have historically had greater value in the marketplace. “We are pleased that there is now a route for advanced fuels that provides protein that contributes to the food system. We expect that the approval of this pathway will open up new business opportunities for Gevo, while driving sustainable environmental improvements,” CEO Dr. Patrick Gruber stated in the news release.
