ENGLEWOOD, US: Gevo Inc has been issued a new patent, US Patent No. 8,431,374 (‘374 Patent), covering the foundational methods for low-cost isobutanol production at commercially relevant titer, productivity, and yields.

“This is a milestone achievement toward our goal of making commercial isobutanol a reality. Titer, productivity, and yield are three of the key metrics needed to sustain an economically viable process for isobutanol production. This patent broadly protects methods of producing isobutanol at economically viable levels. Prospective producers of isobutanol cannot achieve commercially viable production without access to our ‘374 Patent,” said Brett Lund, Executive Vice President and General Counsel, Gevo.

“This patent significantly strengthens Gevo’s intellectual property position and reinforces our unmatched ability to obtain dramatic improvements in commercially-viable isobutanol production. We will continue to take the steps necessary to protect and maintain the integrity of our industry-leading technology,” added Lund.
