Our Strategy

Since its inception, Gevo has been committed to fulfilling the promise of displacing petroleum-based products with identical chemicals made from renewable carbon solutions.

By commercializing bio-based products that can replace or augment petroleum-based products, Gevo can support the drive toward creating a sustainable bio-based economy that meets society’s needs for plentiful food and clean air and water.

Gevo’s underlying strategy is to use economically efficient conversion technologies to transform low-cost, renewable carbohydrates into direct replacement products, which can compete on both price and performance versus incumbent petroleum-based products.

Gevo’s initial focus is on the production of isobutanol, a four-carbon alcohol with broad applications in the fuels, chemicals, and materials (such as plastics and fibers) markets.
