In Washington state, Alaska Airlines will buy 1,000 gallons of Gevo’s alcohol-based jetfuel for commercial flights set to begin later this year. It hasn’t yet decided how many flights will use the fuel or at what blend rate. Already the airline has run successful demo flights with the fuel. Alaska is Gevo’s first commercial customer. The use of Gevo’s fuel ties in with the airline’s plan it rolled out in December with Boeing and the Port of Sea-Tac to create a biojet hub.
