OUR INSIGHTS

The Opportunities

Gevo is approaching the tipping point in terms of the commercialization of its renewable hydrocarbon technology. Building off of the Net-Zero concept, the company believes it has a clear pathway to significant cash flow. This is no longer just an idea but is being validated by the company’s inking of $1.6 billion in offtake agreements as part of a ~$14 billion pipeline of contract negotiations. Facilitating even part of this pipeline would require multiple Net-Zero plants with each producing over $100 million in EBITDA at the plant level. This is backed by over $500 million in cash on the company’s balance sheet. The company also expects its RNG plant to begin generating cash flow in late 2022 providing a near-term source of cash.

The Obstacles

A Net-Zero plant has not yet been constructed and will be a significant undertaking. Although commercial production has been proven, this is still a major step and plants at this scale can experience unforeseen problems. This is especially noteworthy given it is the first of its kind. Another problem is simply the long runway to production and sales. Investors will have to be patient as Plant 1 is not expected to begin production of hydrocarbons until 2024.
