ENGLEWOOD, US: Gevo Inc announced the continuation and expansion of its relationship with Land O’Lakes Purina Feed LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Land O’Lakes Inc. The companies signed a joint development agreement that follows an off-take and marketing agreement entered in January 2012. The agreement contemplates the companies’ research and development efforts to upgrade isobutanol distiller grains (iDGsTM) for special value-added applications in animal feed markets.

Gevo has acquired a patent portfolio developed by AmbroZea Inc, including US Patent No 7,309,602 entitled, ‘compositions and methods for producing fermentation products and residuals.’ The acquired technology covers compositions and methods designed to increase the value of animal feed. Working in conjunction with Land O’ Lakes Purina Feed, Gevo believes this technology could further enhance the value of its iDGs(TM) in the animal feed market.

“Land O’Lakes Purina Feed’s willingness to help develop products formulated with Gevo iDGs(TM) provides validation of the potential opportunities and applications of our high-protein animal feed. Our animal feed presents a unique opportunity for Land O’Lakes Purina Feed to develop new products with enhanced protein benefits. Land O’Lakes Purina Feed has consistently led the animal feed industry towards higher quality products, coupled with its scale and consumer reach, this agreement creates a wonderful opportunity for our Luverne operations,” said Dr Patrick Gruber, CEO, Gevo.
