Job Description

What is XFuel anyway? 🚀🌳⛽

Our mission is to decarbonise the transportation industry, and we devote our technology, time and talent to the planet, advancing the transition to sustainable low-carbon fuels.

For the world to reach net zero, we urgently need sustainable liquid fuel replacements now. Over the last 10 years, XFuel has developed and patented technology to produce sustainable low-carbon road, marine and aviation fuels from solid biomass waste sources such as forestry, manufacturing, construction and agriculture.

Our road and marine fuel is a drop-in replacement to fossil fuels, not requiring blending, engine modifications or infrastructure investment in energy distribution or storage. Our project capital requirements are up to 5x lower, and our production costs are comparable or lower than fossil fuel market prices. We have a pilot plant in Spain with a production capacity of ~1m litres per year, demonstrating our technology, and a low risk modular approach to scaling up production in our commercial projects.

Our first commercial project planned is in Wilton international, Teesside, UK, with site, suppliers and global off-taker partners lined up, initially producing 4.6m litres of fuel and saving 10k tons of CO2 per year in 2024, with a follow-on phase of 8x the production and savings in 2025.

XFuel’s goal is to build, own and operate plants globally, becoming the full-stack sustainable fuel company for the 21st century. We are rising to the challenge of decarbonising the transportation industry and we are looking for passionate people to help us get there. We hope to find people that reflect our mission, values and drive.
