Gevo, Maker of Biofuel for Jets, Adding South Dakota Plant to Summit Carbon Pipeline
Gevo will be making sustainable aviation fuel in Lake Preston, South Dakota. Summit Carbon Solutions plans to capture carbon emissions from the facility.
Colorado-based Gevo broke ground on its $800 million Net-Zero 1 plant to make jet fuel from corn at Lake Preston in September 2022 and Summit released a statement to Agweek that Gevo has signed on as a partner.
A project update from Gevo in January said the plant is on schedule to startup in 2025 . It will produce about 55 million gallons of sustainable aviation fuel annually and a total 65 million gallons of fuel per year, according to Gevo.
A wind-energy project is being developed to provide electricity to the 245 acre site, which also will produce green hydrogen from water and renewable natural gas. When it’s up and running, the facility will have about 90 full-time employees.
