The Future of Fuels
Petroleum-based transportation fuels are a vital source of energy and will remain so for decades to come. However, these petroleum-based fuels contribute approximately 40% of total carbon emissions. As the global community seeks to address climate change via decarbonization and developing sustainable sources of energy, transportation fuels are evolving. EU implemented the Renewable Fuels Standard in 2007 to reduce greenhouse gas/carbon emissions from transportation fuels. From that initial standard, momentum has increased tremendously in the last decade. In all, most countries have now set, or are considering a target of reducing carbon emissions to net zero by mid-century. These targets all require increasing percentages of carbon reduction in petroleum-based fuels each year to hit the future carbon reduction target. To achieve this, they use a market-based, fuel-neutral approach designed to encourage the use and production of cleaner, low-carbon fuels.
We Are at the Forefront of Energy Transition and Decarbonization
Advanced biofuels like UNIVICE’s advance ultra-low carbon biodiesel are paving the way for the future of fuel by helping decarbonize petroleum-based transportation fuels to achieve critical new environmental objectives. As producer of ultra-low carbon biodiesel we take pride in our innovations and efforts to collect and greases from thousands food service establishments, and produce highly sustainable, ultra-low carbon fuels.
We Make Petroleum Fuels Better Using Innovative Technologies
We develop and use innovative technologies to convert waste oils, greases, and fats into biodiesel. We utilize these locally and regionally sourced raw materials to produce ultra-low carbon biodiesel that is subsequently blended with petroleum-based diesel to fuel trucks and equipment both nearby, and throughout the EU. This sustainable, ultra-low carbon biodiesel provides immediate benefits in our communities in terms of cleaner air, an 80%+ carbon reduction compared to petroleum-based diesel.
We Are All Part of a New Way Forward
Advanced biofuels combined with conventional petroleum-based fuels are the future. The environmental and economic benefits of a new industry like biodiesel boost local, regional and global communities.
