Gevo says Butamax patent suit is without merit

August 12, 2011 |

In Colorado, Gevo stated that the patent infringement suit that Butamax Advanced Biofuels filed in U.S. District Court in the District of Delaware is without merit. The new lawsuit asserts infringement of Butamax’s newly issued U.S. Patent No. 7,993,889, which stems from the same application as the patent that Butamax asserted in a pending lawsuit, filed on January 14, 2011.

Pat Gruber, CEO of Gevo states: “We are the leaders in the technology and commercialization of low-cost isobutanol. Unfortunately, lawsuits like this are typical disputes that leaders face. We will vigorously challenge these patents and Butamax’s infringement allegations. We believe that these disputes will eventually reveal the superiority of Gevo’s innovations in this field. We will continue to lead, keeping the focus on the production of low-cost isobutanol, deploying our technology, and securing additional off-take agreements.”
