The climate is under pressure. And despite a number of climate agreements, we still have not bent the curve on fossil fuel emissions, which continue to rise. One of the big sinners is the fuel we use for transport.
In Europe, burning of fossil fuels for transport contributes to 20 per cent of our collective emissions of greenhouse gases. In the USA this figure is 26 per cent.
Since we’re not about to stop transporting ourselves and our goods any time soon, we clearly need to find a sustainable and CO2-neutral solution to meet these energy requirements.
One part of the solution will be to continue electrification of railways and single person transport, while road, sea, and air freight will probably continue to burn liquid fuels.
