WHAT IS PROJECT CARBON FREEDOM?
Project Carbon Freedom is a coalition of American heating fuel distributors in the Northeast and farmers in the Midwest who support the scientific community’s assessment that advanced liquid biofuels are essential in order to quickly, safely, and affordably transition our country to a carbon-free economy. Our vision aligns with the many leading experts who recognize the need for innovative regional solutions that utilize existing assets and infrastructure to ensure an efficient and equitable transition to 100-percent renewable energy by the middle of the 21st century.
WHAT DOES THE COALITION DO?
Through outreach, education, and advocacy, Project Carbon Freedom aims to advance a common-sense strategy to optimize existing supply chain infrastructures in order to meet state and federal decarbonization targets with domestically produced, renewable biofuels that neither compromise food supply or land use, and which are already being used to heat homes across the Northeast and beyond.
Project Carbon Freedom’s vision supports American farmers and small businesses, strengthens local economies, promotes environmental justice, protects consumers from the substantial costs associated with policy-driven electrification, and takes a significant burden off of the electric grid as it struggles to meet increasing demand – particularly in the Northeast during winter – with renewable energy sources.
