    "By operating in the SBS we have been able to mitigate the recycle, infection, solids handling and plant operability issues. It is satisfying to see that our yeast and GIFT technology work well at commercial scale. Our yields and costs have improved very quickly. In addition, we are very pleased with the United States District Court's recent decision to stay the patent litigation involving U.S. Patent Nos. 7,851,188 and 7,993,889 that was scheduled to begin on July 21, 2014. This decision should significantly decrease Gevo's legal costs for the foreseeable future. Taken in combination with the improved cash flow profile of the Luverne operations in the SBS, this should dramatically decrease our overall corporate burn going forward."

    In the beginning of June, Gevo commenced the co-production of isobutanol and ethanol, with one fermenter dedicated to isobutanol production and three fermenters dedicated to ethanol production. This follows the company's announcement in May that it had begun production of ethanol. The benefits of simultaneously producing isobutanol and ethanol using the SBS are:

    1) it facilitates the process optimization of commercial-scale isobutanol production;

    2) it maximizes the utilization of the plant to generate cash by utilizing all the fermentation assets; and

    3) it demonstrates the simultaneous production of isobutanol and ethanol, for the benefit of potential licensee partners who are interested in augmenting the fermentation capacities of their ethanol plants to co-produce isobutanol.

    "Most of the technology necessary to convert isobutanol into plastics, fibers, rubber, other polymers and hydrocarbon fuels is known and practiced in the chemicals industry today. Gevo’s commercialization efforts are focused on the following markets:

    -Isobutanol — Without any modification, isobutanol has applications as a specialty chemical and a fuel blendstock. In the fuel blendstock market, isobutanol can be used to replace high-value blendstocks, such as alkylate, and can be blended in conjunction with, or as a substitute for, ethanol and other widely used fuel oxygenates.

    -Plastics, Fibers, Rubber and other Polymers — Isobutanol can be converted into a wide variety of hydrocarbons that form the basis for the production of many products, including rubber, lubricants, additives, methyl methacrylate, polypropylenes, polyesters, and polystyrene, representing an aggregate potential market for isobutanol of approximately 67 BGPY, based upon volume data from SRI, CMAI and Nexant.

    -Hydrocarbon Fuels — Alternatively, the hydrocarbons that can be produced from isobutanol collectively represent a potential market for isobutanol of over 900 BGPY, based upon volume data from IEA."

  • Isobutanol can be used as a biofuel substitute for gasoline in the current petroleum infrastructure. Isobutanol has not yet been put into mainstream use as a biofuel and would serve as a replacement for ethanol. Ethanol is a first generation biofuel, and is used primarily as a gasoline additive in the petroleum infrastructure. Isobutanol is a second generation biofuel with several qualities that resolve issues presented by ethanol.

    Isobutanol's properties make it an attractive biofuel:

    -relatively high energy density, 98% of that of gasoline
    -does not readily absorb water from air, preventing the corrosion of engines and pipelines
    -can be mixed at any proportion with gasoline, meaning the fuel can "drop into" the existing petroleum -infrastructure as a replacement fuel or major additive.
    -can be produced from plant matter not connected to food supplies, preventing a fuel-price/food-price relationship.

    Isobutanol has a variety of technical and industrial applications:

    -feedstock in the manufacture of isobutyl acetate, which is used in the production of lacquer and similar -coatings, and in the food industry as a flavoring agent
    -precursor of derivative esters - isobutyl esters such as diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP) are used as plasticizers in -plastics, rubbers, and other dispersions
    -precursor of p-xylene, a building block for plastic bottles, textiles and clothing.
    -paint solvent
    -varnish remover
    -ink ingredient
    -paint additive, to reduce viscosity, improve brush flow, and #$%$ formation of oil residues (blush) on painted -surfaces
    -gasoline additive, to reduce carburetor icing
    -automotive polish additive
    -automotive paint cleaner additive
    -chemical extractant in production of organic compounds
    -mobile phase in thin layer chromatography.
    -potential gasoline alternative

    "Gordmans, the Omaha-based apparel and home decor retailer, has appointed two new hires to its executive team, including Stacey M. Townsend, who will launch the company’s new e-commerce business.

    Townsend was named vice president and general manager of e-commerce.

    Gordmans operated an online retail store at one point but closed it a few years ago. Gordmans’ new online retail website is in the works, but no date has yet been set for its launch, a company representative said.

    “Stacey brings a broad-based background in e-commerce,” said T. Scott King, the company’s interim chief executive.

    Townsend joins Gordmans from Interline Brands, a $1.6 billion direct marketer. She also served in e-commerce roles at Hancock Fabrics, Oriental Trading Co., the Bombay Co., KB Toys and Egghead.

    Gordmans also has hired Amy Starr Myers as senior vice president of marketing.

    Most recently, Myers served as vice president of marketing and creative services at Things Remembered, a retailer of personalized gifts.

    The plan to reopen an online store was part of several changes, including leadership changes, the retailer announced earlier this year after the expanding company experienced several quarters of notable same-store sales declines.

    King, the board chairman, was named interim CEO after the March resignation of Jeff Gordman, who had been chief executive and president since 1996. The company is seeking a permanent CEO."

  • "Amy Myers most recently was vice president of marketing and creative services at Things Remembered, the nation's largest and most prominent retailer of personalized gifts. During her eight-year tenure at Things Remembered, she introduced the retailer to hundreds of new malls through strategic growth initiatives that delivered positive comp store sales and increased brand recognition, resulting in bottom-line growth. Myers also led the international expansion of the company into Canada. Prior to Things Remembered, Myers served in marketing positions at Shop At Home TV and Kraft Foods. She also spent six years at Spiegel, Inc., where she managed the statistics, circulation and promotions departments."

  • "Star Trek's replicators were not only able to produce any food or products our far-off descendants wanted, they were also able to make it from any kind of waste products. It was the ultimate recycling scenario, one that the new Ekocycle Cube 3D Printer hopes to emulate by using a new filament made in part from recycled plastic bottles.

    The Ekocycle printer will be available from Cubify for $1,200 later this year, and will use filament cartridges that contain at least three recycled 20 oz. PET plastic bottles, but the material still retains the flexibility and durability of standard 3D printer filament."

    Coke's PlantBottle (which was developed in partnership with Gevo) technology is popping up everywhere.
