Gevo gets patent for technology to produce isobutanol

Gevo gets patent for technology to produce isobutanolGEVO, a US-based renewable chemicals and biofuels company, has received a patent to enable commercially
viable production of isobutanol from yeast. Since yeast naturally produces isobutanol at low yields, the new technology allows production for commercial applications by eliminating barriers in the process. The end result is an improved yield of isobutanol by 20%.

With its new technology, the company also plans to set up a plant. The new patent adds to its already
existing 300 patents and applications for the economic production of isobutanol, process innovations and
downstream product applications. (PRA)
