HOUSTON (ICIS)--Gevo has started up its second million-litre fermenter and GIFT separation system at its bio-based isobutanol plant in Luverne, Minnesota, the US-based renewable chemicals producer said on Thursday.
“This serves to further validate our technology and plant know-how,” said Patrick Gruber, Gevo’s CEO.
“We plan to bring the final fermenters and GIFT system online at Luverne later this year, testing run rates, then ramping up production and sales over the balance of 2013 and in 2014,” he added.
