Zero Synthetic Fuels

A revolutionary fuel for a sustainable future

Zero makes clean-burning fossil-free synthetic gasoline, diesel and jet fuel made from just air and water. The fuels can be used in existing engines without modification, contain no impurities and have a carbon neutral lifecycle, as their production extracts the same amount of CO2 from the air as is emitted in fuel use. The fuels could revolutionize global transport by de-fossilizing entire industries including aviation, farming and heavy industry. Zero has partnered with Rolls-Royce, Boeing, the RAF and drone delivery innovator Dronamics to accelerate their rapid introduction.

Zero Petroleum
Zero has developed a process for the scalable manufacture of carbon-neutral synthetic gasoline, diesel and jet fuel from air and water using renewable energy. The company's game-changing technology promises to disrupt the fossil and biofuel sectors, supporting the net zero transition in industries such as aviation, heavy plant and agriculture while also enabling existing vehicles to continue fossil-free. The proprietary process is unique in the sector, as it is able to create fuels for use in any engine without the need for further processing or blending.
