ERJ staff report (DS)
Englewood, Colorado - Gevo Inc has made the first trial batches of isobutanol at its biological production facility in Luverne Minnesota.
â€œWe've shown that we can successfully ferment isobutanol in large (250,000 gallon) commercial fermenters, isolate the product and get it into tanks and railcars,â€ said CEO Patrick Gruber, Ph.D.
â€œWe still have a lot of work to do: improve plant reliability, improve yields, improve throughput and improve quality,â€ he added.
