    • The EPA says greenhouse gases from aircraft endanger human health, a finding that begins a process to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from the aviation industry, the latest sector to be regulated under the Clean Air Act after cars, trucks and power plants.
    • The endangerment finding allows the EPA to implement domestically a global carbon dioxide emissions standard being developed by the International Civil Aviation Organization; the airline industry favors a global standard over individual national standards since airlines operate all over the world and want to avoid a patchwork of rules and measures.
    • GEVO, which has been working on renewable fuels for airplanes, is +3.5% today and +27% so far this month in anticipation of the EPA findings.
    • Also higher are REGI +2%, SZYM +2.5%, AMRS +2%.

    • Amyris (AMRS +12.6%) shoots higher despite missing Q1 earnings and revenue estimates, as CEO John Melo says the company is on track to become cash flow positive during H2 2014 and profitable in 2015.
    • During this morning's earnings call, Melo said AMRS has resumed industrial production at the Brotas refinery in Brazil following planned maintenance and facility upgrades, and said the plant already achieved fermentation superior to last year's best fermentation runs.
    • Melo also said AMRS now has more than 10 different partners and expects to add additional partners later this year.
    • However, Cowen cuts its price target to $3 from $3.50, saying visibility remains low after Q1 results and 2014 outlook.
