US sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) producer Gevo expects to break ground on its first commercial Net-Zero 1 (NZ-1) plant next month, having finally closed on its purchase of the 245-acre site near Lake Preston, South Dakota in late July. First production is expected in 2025 from the plant, which will produce 55 million gallons of SAF per year plus a further 7 million gallons of other low-carbon products. Gevo uses the alcohol-to-jet pathway to produce SAF from fermented industrial corn. An onsite windfarm will be used to power the NZ-1plant and provide the electricity needed to make green hydrogen to ensure net-zero greenhouse gas emissions. The firm is also looking at ways of upgrading existing US renewable ethanol production in a bid to ramp up SAF production more quickly.
