The French oil and gas company Total has invested an undisclosed amount in the fourth round of funding by biofuels start-up Gevo. Gevo uses biocatalysts to make butanol and other fuels and chemicals from agricultural wastes. It plans to commercialize its renewable hydrocarbon manufacturing by retrofitting existing ethanol facilities.
