After this morning's Startup Review, we open our doors to non-members for a Lunch Roundtable on Sustainable Fuels. Sustainable Fuels are combustible fuels that can be used in conventional engine types, but are not extracted as petroleum, but rather man-made. By making the fuels using Carbon captured from the atmosphere, these liquids share properties of gasoline, kerosene, or diesel, but can be similarly burned while still producing net-zero carbon. The category includes both biomass fuel, and e-Fuels. The industry leading the demand is aviation, but the fuels have wider-ranging use cases.

Companies invited to this roundtable are working on: 

  • renewable chemicals
  • aviation
  • biofuel
  • synfuels


Bi-monthly Startup Review meetings are closed to non-members, the public and media. Guest passes for future members may be available on a fit and capacity basis. Regular participants include tech scouts, innovation strategy, partnership executives and corporate development delegates from:

  • Energy & Utility companies 
  • Materials & Chemical companies 
  • Mobility & Automotive companies
  • Cleantech & Greentech investors
