Changing the fuel mix in the shipping industry to sustainable advanced biofuel.
Creating a movement through market exposure gained in using sustainable advanced biofuel in the shipping industry.
Providing for a platform to influence decision makers to provide incentives in the marine industry.
Research and develop for the most sustainable advanced biofuel at the most affordable price.
1. The marine industry burns the dirtiest fuels in the market. Today, shipping is the 6th-highest emitting “country” and a major source of black carbon emissions. Shipping is a fast-growing source of GHG, projected to account for 17% of global CO2 emissions by 2050.
2. Shipping, being a truly global activity, has been omitted from COP21 agreements. IMO has just postponed its GHG strategy to 2023, leaving the industry without an incentive to decarbonize.
3. IMO mandated efficiency measures – EEDI for new ships, EEOI and SEEMP for all ships – are by far insufficient to reduce carbon emissions. Adoption of low-carbon fuel is urgently needed.
There’s one issue that will define the contours of this century more dramatically than any other, and that is the urgent and growing threat of a changing climate.
We are the environment. The world is literally one biological process. The trees are our lungs. Look at the Amazon River system next to a human cardiovascular system, look at corals or trees and look at our lungs, you literally cannot tell the difference. They’re the same. So when we destroy our environment, we’re effectively destroying ourselves.
As we progress into the twenty-first century, anyone who considers themselves a realist will have to make the environment a top priority.

It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty; the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.
