Isobutanol Provides a Renewable Solution to  Benefit the Transportation Fuels Value Chain

Executive Summary:     The demand for a clean, renewable biofuel is  increasing as new legislative benchmarks appear  on the horizon and pressure escalates for the  petroleum industry to reduce our dependence  on imported fossil fuels for energy consumption.    Gevo—a leader in next generation biofuels— has  developed and patented a cost‐effective process,  GIFT® (Gevo Integrated Fermentation  Technology®), which converts fermentable  sugars from sustainable feedstocks  into isobutanol, a biobutanol product that  provides solutions to many of the value chain  issues highlighted with first generation biofuels.
