Gevo signs fuel sales agreement with SAS Airlines

November 14, 2019 |

In Colorado, Gevo, Inc. announced it has signed a Fuel Sales Agreement with Scandinavian Airline System (“SAS”) to produce and supply sustainable aviation fuel for use and distribution in low carbon fuel regions of the United States.

With the finalization of this new supply contract, Gevo will supply SAF to SAS from Gevo’s expanded Luverne, Minnesota plant, which is expected to be constructed over the next several years.

For every gallon of SAF produced, Gevo also produces approximately 10 pounds of protein that goes into the food supply chain and can sequester up to 2 pounds of carbon dioxide as carbon into the soil, making it one of the only renewable jet fuel producers to produce both food and fuel while sequestering carbon dioxide and lowering the GHG emissions as compared to traditional fossil-based jet fuel. In addition to adding food back into the food chain, Gevo will also be more transparent with its sustainability practices by utilizing blockchain technology to track its sustainable agriculture efforts.
