"Alaska Flight 388, which landed at San Francisco International Airport just after 3 p.m., flew the popular two-hour route on a 20 percent blend of biofuel derived from South Dakota corn fermented by yeast. Alaska prides itself on being the first U.S. airline to have flown regular commercial flights on fuel derived from used cooking oil, in 2011. “As long as it’s certified, we’re not particularly picky on the source material and process used,” said Joseph Sprague, Alaska’s senior vice president of communications. [...] Alaska currently pays about $1.50 per gallon for standard jet fuel made from oil, he said. Should the price of oil rise from its current lows, Gevo could undercut standard jet fuel on price by the early 2020s, he said, and it should also be cheaper than competing biofuel technologies. Once considered one of humanity’s best bets for weaning the world off oil, advanced biofuels have proved difficult to bring to the market en masse,", www.sfgate.com

"SEATTLE, June 7, 2016 -- The skies are a little greener today after two Alaska Airlines jets departed the Emerald City fueled by the first alcohol-to-jet fuel (ATJ) made from sustainable U.S. corn. The two Alaska Airlines flights departed today with Gevo, Inc. fuel and flew from Seattle to San Francisco International Airport and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. 'Alaska is committed to doing its part to reduce its carbon emissions. Advancing the use of alternative jet fuels is a key part of our emission reduction strategy,' said Joseph Sprague, Alaska Airlines' senior vice president of communications and external relations. 'Gevo's jet fuel product is an important step forward, in that it has the potential to be scalable and cost effective, without sacrificing performance.' While the 1,500 gallons of biofuel used on these flights have a minimal impact to Alaska Airlines' overall greenhouse", www.theautochannel.com
