Gevo Inc (NASDAQ:GEVO) has won a lucrative new contract as Bombardier Inc (OTCMKTS: BDRBF), the Canadian jet maker, is the latest company to adopt its sustainable jet fuel, which will be put into action at its Montreal facilities. 

Bombardier’s supply deal with Avfuel – a supplier of aviation fuel and services - represents the jet maker’s first step in a plan to forge partnerships to introduce sustainable jet fuel in a bid to reduce its CO2 emissions. 

“Today, we are proud to offer it for the first time at one of our Canadian facilities and it’s only the beginning,” said David Coleal, president of Bombardier Aviation.
