Green Fuels Research (GFR) is an innovation company. Our function is to conduct research and develop intellectual property that has value – whether for commercialisation by affiliated companies, licensing or sale to third parties, or release into the public domain for the common good.
Our mission is to seek solutions to the problems caused by decades of use of fossil fuels in road, aviation and maritime transport and in energy production. We have identified aviation as a key challenge to be addressed: progress has been slower in introducing sustainable fuel sources in this area than in, for example, road transport. This results not only in a significant unmet commercial need for alternative fuels but also a major gap in attempts to limit carbon emissions. We are also keen to solve problems caused by less sustainable crops and feedstocks in first-generation biofuels by researching sustainable waste-derived feedstocks and sustainable energy crops.
