Bio-markets that don't yet exist

Rotterdam, 22 September 2022

The energy system of the future consists of all kinds of innovative solutions. These innovations differ per market segment and mode; road traffic requires different solutions than shipping and air transport. We therefore look at new sustainable feedstocks, as well as ground breaking conversion technologies to convert these feedstocks into various suitable energy carriers. That is why we are not only looking at liquid fuels, but also at hydrogen and electricity.

African Clean Energy (ACE) recently won the EY Social Impact Entrepreneur of the Year Award, an award for successful and innovative initiatives that help make the world a more beautiful and better place. It was a wonderful reward for what ACE has been doing for ten years: ensuring that the world’s poorest households have access to clean energy supplies. The family business has already sold more than 70,000 units of the ACE One: a hybrid stove that burns biomass in a clean way by means of a fan that runs on solar energy. Users no longer need to cook on an open fire, which is beneficial to both their health and air quality. And as well as cooking their food on it, they can also charge their mobile phones with it.

Without biofuels, 2030 climate targets remain an illusion

Bart-Willem ten Cate from FinCo Fuel gives a glance at the various election programs of 2021. Without biofuels, 2030 climate targets remain an illusion
Rotterdam, 12 March 2021

A glance at the various election programs offers little hope for the time being when it comes to sufficiently reducing CO2-emissions. Despite all the good intentions, the climate objectives remain far out of sight. Not for nothing did European government leaders make stricter agreements at the end of last year: emissions must be reduced by 55 percent in 2030 compared to 1990. The greatest gains can be made in the mobility sector, which is the only sector in Europe where emissions have risen since that base year. Clear policies on the use of renewable fuels are crucial for this.
