Gevo updates bio-isobutanol production plans

Earnings season is in full force for the next week or so, and unfortunately (or maybe fortunately??) I will be on vacation with no internet connection starting this Sunday.

By the way, it was a pleasure talking with OPX Biotechnology CEO Charles Eggert again as he gave the blog updates on the company's activities and plans yesterday. I will post a short article on the interview later on. Meanwhile, let's talk about Gevo.

The company reported yesterday during its 2Q earnings call that it is planning to bring its whole bio-isobutanol plant in Luverne, Minnesota, up and running this year as it resumed commercial production from its first fermenter in June (after shutting it down in late 2012 due to microbial contamination), and then started its second one million liter fermenter in July. Start-up of the final fermenters are being planned on the second half of 2013, while ramp-up of sales and production is expected through 2013 and 2014.
