Patrick Gruber, Chief Executive Officer, Gevo.

ENGLEWOOD, US: Gevo Inc, the world’s only commercial producer of bio-isobutanol, opened a demonstration-scale paraxylene plant in Silsbee, Texas, US. The paraxylene facility is located adjacent to Gevo’s existing jet fuel plant in Silsbee, and establishes the site as a biorefinery that will serve the renewable chemicals and true drop-in biofuels markets.

Gevo is working with The Coca-Cola Company to deliver a new production technology for renewable paraxylene, a key building block for producing fully renewable poly ethylene terephthalate (PET) for beverage bottles. Gevo is also working with Toray Industries to develop renewable paraxylene, a building block for fully renewable polyester for packaging films and fibres used in textiles, clothing and other applications.

“We believe we have an elegant, viable route to fully-renewable, non-petroleum derived PET and we are pleased that The Coca-Cola Company and Toray have supported this work. Fully renewable PET has the potential to make the world a better place by reducing our dependence on oil and the environmental consequences associated with petroleum based raw materials,” said Patrick Gruber, Chief Executive Officer, Gevo.
