Kholsa's Gevo attracts new 'polylactic CEO' and Sir Richard
Big news last Friday as California's Gevo Inc dropped not one but two bombs on the biofuel world.... it appears they have a new CEO-- one Ptrick Gruber, who's name might sound familiar to you.. and who has touched you-- if you have ever had a bioplastic cup, pen, mug, schwag.... any PLA plastic around is basically from his old haunt (he was CTO at Naturworks/Cargil). But then of course, the big news was Vinod Kholsa's new partner in crime;
Yes! The Branson and his $400M "planet cooling company" is getting on the GEVO train! It's basically the Frances H Arnold Technologies, Gevo has exclusive rights to the stuff-- and any friend of cellulostic ethanol is a friend of ours, right? I just wish "Sir B" would have shown up at the conference with Kholsa airdropping himself to the podium, or skydiving in... you know something Branson-style ...but hey, even without the spectacle, it's quite spectacular!

Branson and Khosla sky diving

Dickie Branson won't be skydiving in until he gets his biojet fuel ironed out... possibly with this technology. Check out more on the Big Biofuels Blog

Re: Branson and Khosla sky diving

This one? http://www.icis.com/blogs/biofuels ? r u Simon, as in Big Biofuels Simon?? wow. I'm always so touched when i get comments from *real* journalists like you or Andy RevK.. well touched and confused. But thanks! And yeh this may be what Bronson was missing... but I kinda doubt that even if so, there's no way he will get Vinod sky diving!! ha ha ha...
