Our mission

”We are engaged in the fight against climate change. We aim to have a disproportionate impact on greenhouse gas reduction through the projects we operate, the technologies we develop and the equipment that we sell without harm to the environment”

Decarbonising fuel since 2003

Green Fuels is a pioneer in renewable fuels. Founded in 2003, we have supplied biofuel technology, offered biofuels consultancy and installed our own facilities in more than 80 countries. Our researchers have worked on projects ranging from fish-farming to jet fuel, with a focus on our mission to decarbonise transportation wherever we can.

We are a tech-led company, and since 2014 we have had a dedicated R&D division to explore new and emerging areas of sustainable fuels. Green Fuels Research has attracted $16m in direct and indirect research funding to date, with university-level R&D facilities in Berkeley, Gloucestershire and a talented team of researchers and engineers.

Our priority is combatting the effects of transport on climate change worldwide. The Green Fuels group is in the course of a strategic transformation to global sustainable fuel producer in the pivotal sectors of sustainable aviation and marine fuels and in high-growth emerging markets for sustainable road fuel.

We have participated in many pioneering events in our field including the UK’s Royal Train, still the only train in the world to have run on 100% biofuelGreen Fuels also worked with RS Williams Ltd on the conversion of the Prince of Wales’ Aston Martin DB6 Volante to run on waste-derived bioethanol. The use of the car during the 2011 wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge was a very public demonstration of sustainable fuel in use.
