The GEVO Climate-Smart Farm-to-Flight Program

U.S. Department of Agriculture

The project aims to create critical structural climate-smart market incentives for low carbon-intensity corn as well as to accelerate the production of sustainable aviation fuel to reduce the sector’s dependency on fossil-based fuel. This project includes an immediate market opportunity to sell climate- smart, low-climate-impact corn.

The project plans to use existing relationships within the airline industry to secure offtake agreements for low-carbon intensity sustainable aviation fuel and other biofuel purchasers. The project plans to establish an advisory council, which will include members from underserved groups, specifically focusing on gender equality and minority representation from the Native tribal organizations, to ensure project design and implementation adequately account for underserved producers and communities.

Program materials, education and training are planned to be centered on minority-owned farms and the benefits of enrolling their farm acreage in a climate-smart commodities program; this project also specifically aims to enroll two historically underserved groups: women (majority female-owned farms) in southeast Iowa and southeast Nebraska and Native American tribal organizations in South Dakota, including the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.
