At VC Fuel, we believe that successfully reducing global emissions requires more aggressively addressing the manufacturing sector, which accounts for 31% of global GHG emissions yet draws minimal attention compared to other GHG sources.
We are especially focused on investing in technologies and infrastructure in manufacturing sectors in which we have significant direct experience, including petrochemical and fertilizer manufacturing. We are in the process of partnering with companies that re-imagine these manufacturing process to make them more efficient and significantly less carbon-intensive.
In general we are also focusing on approaches for low–carbon manufacturing, including eco-design, additive manufacturing, material substitution, remanufacturing, and reducing yield loss.
As a somewhat overlooked sector that is essential to global decarbonization, we are excited about the opportunities that sustainable manufacturing investments will present.
