November 12 (Renewables Now) - US biofuels company Gevo Inc (NASDAQ:GEVO) last week said it has secured a four-year contract to supply renewable isobutanol and renewable isooctane for the City of Seattle’s fleet vehicles.
The firm took part in a competitive process conducted by the city and won the contract, with options for three extensions of two years each. The minimum annual supply volumes in it stand at 200,000 gallons for renewable isobutanol and 600,000 gallons for renewable isooctane (gasoline).
The tender for clean fuel was part of Seattle’s Green Fleet Action Plan (GFAP), which aims to cut greenhouse gas emissions from the citywide fleet. One of Seattle’s goals is to use 100% fossil-fuel-free (F3) fuel by 2030.
Gevo has engaged Scooter J Logistics and Small and Sons Oil Distribution Co to coordinate the blending, logistics, and delivery of the final product.
