Marine Fuel

Gevo’s bio-based isobutanol has been officially endorsed by the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) as a drop-in fuel for marine and recreational boat engines. It not only helps meet renewable fuel and clean air standards, but solves concerns that many boaters have with ethanol-blended fuels, which can damage internal engine parts. In fact the isobutanol benefits identified in the NMMA’s studies include:

  • Provides higher energy content;
  • Prevents moisture absorption & phase separation; and
  • Reduces engine corrosion

Because of this, Gevo’s isobutanol is the first isobutanol to be listed in the EPA’s Fuel Registration Directory and is approved for blending with gasoline.
