The plant utilizes LanzaTech's technology which relies on anaerobic bacteria to ferment stell mill waste emissions. The installation has an ethanol production capacity of 46,000 tpy and has been operational since early May, this year.
According to LanzaTech, the performance of this type of sustainable ethanol in fuel blending applications is indistinguishable from sugar-derived ethanol and meets the ASTM International D4806 standard.

This jet fuel specification is a direct nexus between the global ethanol industry and the aviation sector, connecting two mature industries that could never be linked in the past. Now ethanol can be used as a feedstock to make renewable jet fuel.
The new ASTM specification allows jet fuel, produced from ethanol under the ATJ process, to be sold commercially on a global basis.
The aviation sector is now subject to global de-carbonization compliance regulations beginning in 2020 under the International Air Transport Association's (IATA) Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA). Given such great demand, and now with the ATJ specification in place, a full supply chain exists to effectively scale up and drive production costs down while carbon reduction policies are advanced.

GEVO's proprietary technology uses a combination of synthetic biology, metabolic engineering, chemistry and chemical engineering to focus primarily on the production of isobutanol, as well as related products from renewable feedstocks. The company aims to commercialize bio-based alternatives to petroleum-based products. The company produces isobutanol, ethanol and high-value animal feed at its fermentation plant in Luverne, MN. GEVO has also developed technology to produce hydrocarbon products from renewable alcohols. Gevo currently operates a biorefinery in Silsbee, TX, in collaboration with South Hampton Resources Inc., to produce renewable jet fuel, octane, and ingredients for plastics like polyester.
