Gevo Inc (NASDAQ:GEVO) has named industry veteran Dr Paul Bloom as its Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and Chief Innovation Officer as the company develops the renewable chemicals and materials side of its business.
The Englewood, Colorado-based company noted that Dr Bloom has two decades of experience in a series of commercial and technical roles at Archer Daniels Midland Company. Most recently, Dr Bloom was the vice president of Sustainable Materials and was previously the general manager of Evolution Chemicals, where he led development and commercialization activities for the company’s portfolio of renewable chemicals.
In addition, Dr Bloom had global responsibility for the company’s pipeline of new process technologies and partnerships with the chemical industry.
“I’m pleased to have Paul Bloom join us. He brings strong technical depth, and business development experience, which we expect to use as we develop the renewable chemicals and materials side of our business,” Gevo CEO Patrick R Gruber said in a statement.
“Paul has seen what works and what doesn’t in the space of renewable chemicals, plastics, and fuel. We are fortunate to have him join our team,” he added.
Dr Bloom said he was “excited” to be a part of the Gevo team and noted that the company has “excellent technology” to tackle greenhouse gas emissions.
“Drop-in, net-zero hydrocarbon fuel products are desperately needed and will make a difference in the transportation sector. Gevo’s portfolio also contains renewable chemical materials that can address unmet needs for the circular economy. For example, these high-performance, plant-based products could go into the automotive industry, durable goods, and consumer products,” said Dr Bloom.
“The potential, in my opinion, is large to help provide more sustainable alternatives to customers and consumers while delivering superior performance,” he added.
Gevo is a next-generation “low-carbon” fuel company focused on the development and commercialization of renewable alternatives to petroleum-based products. The company is developing gasoline and jet fuel using renewable feedstocks that have the potential to lower greenhouse gas emissions at a meaningful scale.
