DOE introduces Clean Fuels & Products Shot to help reduce emissions in transportation and industrial sectors

May 25, 2023
This initiative is designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from carbon-based fuels and products in the aviation, maritime, rail, and chemical industries.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has launched its seventh DOE Energy Earthshot, Clean Fuels & Products Shot. This initiative is designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from carbon-based fuels and products in the aviation, maritime, rail, and chemical industries. According to the DOE, this project will aid in the development of sustainable feedstocks and conversion technologies necessary to produce crucial fuels, materials, and carbon-based products that are better for the environment. The department estimates that the Clean Fuels & Products Shot can help eliminate more than 650 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent per year by 2050.

In a recent quote, U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm said, “DOE is invested in decarbonizing the transportation and chemical industries by accelerating technologies necessary to reduce emissions from the manufacturing of fuels and chemicals. This Energy Earthshot will advance the Biden-Harris Administration’s efforts to diversify the domestic supply chain with cost-competitive, clean fuels and products for daily use and establish the U.S. as a world leader in clean fuel and clean carbon-based chemical production.”
