The turbines will generate up to 5 megawatts of renewable energy and allow the facility to produce fuel with a lower carbon intensity score, the company said.
The carbon intensity score is a metric used under the Low Carbon Fuel Standard in California.
Gevo thanked those who made the project possible, including Juhl Energy, local landowners, City of Luverne, Rock County, Faith Technologies, First Farmers and Merchants Bank, Missouri River Energy Services, and GE.
Gevo is commercializing the next generation of gasoline, jet fuel and diesel fuel with the potential to achieve zero carbon emissions, addressing the market need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions with sustainable alternatives.
