Professor Frances H. Arnold of the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) a 2018 Nobel-Prize (chemistry) recipient and Co-Founder of US-headed advanced biofuels producer and technology developer Gevo Inc., has been named to President-Elect Joe Biden’s Science Team.
According to Gevo, the Science Team is tasked with marshaling the force of science to drive meaningful progress in the lives of people. The Science Team will help the Biden-Harris administration confront some of the biggest crises and challenges, including climate change.
This appointment is well deserved. Gevo has benefited from Professor Arnold’s outstanding work in developing enzymes crucial to our technology. Gevo has used science to create technology that has established Gevo as a leader that transforms renewable energy and carbon into energy-dense liquids that have the potential to achieve a net-zero greenhouse footprint when used as drop-in fuels for transportation and other uses. Gevo looks forward to playing its part in reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, commented Dr Patrick R. Gruber, CEO of Gevo.
