Gevo, Inc., a leading renewable technology, chemical products, and next generation biofuels company, has announced an update on the certification process related to its alcohol to jet fuel product.

The production of its latest innovation is in keeping with Gevo’s strategy to commercialise bio-based alternatives to petroleum-based products, in order to allow for the optimisation of fermentation facilities’ assets.

A meeting of the ASTM D02.J6 subcommittee was held on 9 December, 2015, to discuss the revision of ASTM D7566 to include alcohol to jet synthetic paraffinic kerosene (ATJ-SPK). The data is being revised based on the feedback from the ATJ-SPK Taskforce. A motion was passed to concurrently ballot the revised ATJ-SPK specification, both at the subcommittee and main committee level, which is planned for January 2016.

Minutes from the ASTM D02.J6 meeting held on 9 December 2015, are expected to be released in the next 30 - 60 days.
