The company said that Peak Value IP LLC completed an investment valuation of its IP, including trade secrets, know-how, patents and patent applications across the world that can be licensed and monetized by Gevo.
Gevo said that Peak Value used an “Income Approach” to estimate the value, focusing on discounted projected cash flows from direct Gevo-sponsored projects and potential out-licensing within a renewable biofuel production market.

“I’m pleased to see our IP valuation increasing,” said CEO Patrick Gruber in a statement.
“Our products work, our technology works, our patents cover our proprietary technology. I’m looking forward to completing the project financing of our large scale production facilities and getting large plants built.”
He added: “Having an external point of view on our patent portfolio, I expect, will be important in attracting investors. Our valuation reflects that we focused on isobutanol as an enabler for low-carbon renewable gasoline, jet fuel, and diesel fuel.”
Gevo's stock recently traded up by 14.7% to $1.25 a share in New York.
