Gevo has applauded the recent announcement from United Airlines to take the ambitious step of pledging to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 100% by 2050.
The airline’s plan includes the usage of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
“We welcome United’s positive announcement to support the reduction of greenhouse gases. We wholeheartedly agree SAF is the fastest and most effective way United can reduce its emissions,” said Patrick Gruber, chief executive Officer of Gevo.
“Gevo's SAF is approved for use in commerce and has already been used to power numerous commercial flights around the world, including flights by United. It is also notable the possibility to have a net zero, or even negative, GHG profile with SAF like ours. That is a game changer. It is good for the airline industry, good for US farmers, good for consumers, and good for the environment.”
Gevo is commercialising the next generation of jet fuel, petrol and diesel fuel with the potential to achieve zero carbon emissions and address the market need of reducing greenhouse gas emissions with sustainable alternatives.
Gevo uses low-carbon renewable resource-based carbohydrates as raw materials, and is in an advanced state of developing renewable electricity and renewable natural gas for use in production processes.
