The electricity generated from wind is wired directly to the Luverne Facility, which is expected to enable the Luverne Facility to use the emissions-free energy to produce fuel in the future with a lower carbon intensity score under the Low Carbon Fuel Standard in California.

Gevo, Inc. recently announced that the two wind turbines that will supply up to 5 MW of fully renewable electricity to Gevo’s production facility located in Luverne, Minnesota (the “Luverne Facility”) are being placed into service and will begin delivering energy. The electricity generated from wind is wired directly to the Luverne Facility, which is expected to enable the Luverne Facility to use the emissions-free energy to produce fuel in the future with a lower carbon intensity score under the Low Carbon Fuel Standard in California.

A special thanks to all who have helped to make this project possible, including Juhl Energy, local landowners, City of Luverne, Rock County, Faith Technologies, First Farmers and Merchants Bank, Missouri River Energy Services, and GE.

Gevo is commercializing the next generation of jet fuel, gasoline, 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. As a result, Gevo is able to produce low-carbon fuels with substantially reduced carbon intensity (as measured by the level of greenhouse gas emissions compared to standard petroleum fossil-based fuels across their lifecycle).
