Clean Fuels & Products Shot TM: Alternative Sources for Carbon-based Products

Find tools, resources, and other downloadable information related to U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Fuels & Products Shot below.


The Clean Fuels & Products Shot is the seventh U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Energy Earthshot. This Shot focuses on decarbonizing the fuel and chemical industry through alternative sources of carbon to advance cost-effective technologies with a minimum of 85% lower GHG emissions by 2035. It supports the Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) Grand Challenge and the Biden-Harris administration goal of net-zero emissions by 2050.

On May 24, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm unveiled this Energy Earthshot during a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Biomass Feedstock National User Facility (BFNUF) in Idaho Falls, Idaho. This event was in coordination with DOE and Idaho National Laboratory.

Jennifer Granholm, U.S. Secretary of Energy
“DOE is invested in decarbonizing the transportation and chemical industries by accelerating technologies necessary to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and establish the U.S. as a world leader in clean fuel and clean carbon-based chemical production,” said Secretary Granholm. “This Energy Earthshot will advance the administration’s efforts to provide a diversified domestic supply chain with cost-competitive, clean fuels and products for daily use by all Americans.” 

Alejandro Moreno, Acting Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, DOE
“Our transportation and industrial sectors rely heavily on fuels and chemicals that traditionally come from non-sustainable sources,” said Acting Assistant Secretary Moreno. “This Energy Earthshot will advance the critical research we need to develop cleaner, sustainable fuels and chemicals that will reduce emissions and improve the health of Americans and our planet.”

Dr. Valerie Sarisky-Reed, DOE Bioenergy Technologies Office Director
“The Bioenergy Technologies Office is making great strides towards a climate-focused bioeconomy through investing in research and development,” said Director Reed. “The newly upgraded Biomass Feedstock National User Facility will provide our National Laboratory researchers with better tools to explore more effective bioenergy feedstock production – a critical step in meeting the ambitious Clean Fuels & Products Shot goals.”
