    Date: 2020-08-12
    "Revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2020 was $1.0 million compared with $5.1 million in the same period in 2019. During the three months ended June 30, 2020, hydrocarbon revenue was $0.9 million compared with $0.1 million in the same period in 2019 as a result of increased shipments of finished products from our demonstration plant at the South Hampton Resources, Inc. facility in Silsbee, Texas.

    " Gevo's hydrocarbon revenue is comprised of sales of alcohol-to-jet fuel, isooctane and isooctene. During the second quarter of 2020, revenue derived at the Luverne Facility related to ethanol sales and related products was $0.1 million, a decrease of approximately $5.0 million from the same period in 2019. As a result of COVID-19 and in response to an unfavorable commodity environment, we terminated our production of ethanol and distiller grains in March 2020, which resulted in lower sales for the period.

    "Cost of goods sold was $2.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020, compared with $8.5 million in the same period in 2019, primarily as a result of terminating ethanol production as a result of COVID-19 and in response to an unfavorable commodity environment. Cost of goods sold included approximately $1.0 million associated with the production of isobutanol and related products and maintenance of the Luverne Facility and approximately $1.6 million in depreciation expense for the three months ended June 30, 2020.

    "Gross loss was $1.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020, versus a $3.4 million gross loss in the same period in 2019." (Source: Gevo Website Release, 10 Aug., 2020) Contact: Gevo Inc., Patrick Gruber, CEO, 303-858-8358, pgruber@gevo.com, www.gevo.com

    Gevo
    Date: 2019-10-09
    "Friday's (renewable fuels standard) announcement by the EPA is a step in the right direction and will hopefully put the RFS back on track after 31 oil refineries received exemptions back in August. I'm glad President Trump supported this step. A robust renewable fuel standard is important for our farmers, the biofuel industry, and reducing greenhouse gases. Every drop of biofuel we get into the market is a win and helps to change the conversation about what is possible from low carbon, sustainable biofuels.

    "With Gevo it is possible, for example, to replace an entire gallon of transportation fuel with fuels that are renewable with net zero, or even carry a negative, GHG profile. That is a game changer.

    Englewood, Colorado-headquartered renewable fuels and chemicals manufacturer Gevo, Inc. is reporting a proprietary, breakthrough catalytic process that transforms low-cost commercially available, or even waste by-product, renewable alcohols into renewable isoprene that it says could compete head-to-head on price with natural and petroleum-based chemical equivalents while reducing CO2 emissions.

    Gevo recently developed a chemical-based catalytic process to convert low-value "fusel oils", a mixture of alcohols that are byproducts from fermentation processes such as ethanol production, into renewable isoprene. Fusel oils from the ethanol industry alone equate to about 2.5 million tons of potential bio-based waste feedstock.

    Isoprene is primarily used in the production of synthetic-based rubber. The market for isoprene is estimated to be approximately $4 billion by 2025. (Source: Gevo, PR, 28 Jan., 2019) Contact: Gevo, Dr. Patrick Gruber, CEO, , (303) 858-3358, info@gevo.com, www.gevo.com, www.gevo.com
