Decarbonize Transportation Fuel

As our nation moves to an electrified transportation economy, a large proportion of our transportation infrastructure will remain reliant on traditional fossil fuels, leading to an electrification gap. Advanced biofuels can help to fill that gap, and reduce greenhouse gas reductions for the hard-to-electrify sectors – like aviation, long-distance trucking, and marine shipping.

We need sustainable liquid fuels to transition to our energy future.

  • Since 2016, the U.S. transportation sector has emitted more CO2 annually than the power sector
  • Heavy duty trucks alone account for nearly 8% of U.S. GHG emissions
  • Global jet fuel consumption may double or triple by 2050
  • It’s estimated more than 2 billion internal combustion engines will still be on the road in 2050
