Reducing transportation greenhouse gas emissions is essential to managing the global energy transition – particularly as nearly a quarter of worldwide CO2 emissions from energy come from transportation.

ExxonMobil is exploring a mosaic of lower-emission fuel options, including second-generation, or advanced, biofuels and synthetic fuels created by using hydrogen and captured CO2  to form methanol.

Here’s a look at those efforts and the partnerships exploring these solutions.

3. The GHG emissions reduction stated here, relates to the comparison of the calculated carbon footprint of product (CFP) for the renewable components in the PMSC race fuel versus a 94 grams CO2e/MJ of EU Renewable Energy Directive II baseline comparator.  Emissions reduction of up to 85% from renewable components vs. conventional are based on carbon footprint of product calculations conducted under ISO 14067 methodology, effectively referenced as a well-to-wheels boundary, taking into account the feedstock, production, transportation, and combustion related emissions to manufacture the blend of renewable components mentioned here.  A functional unit of 1 MJ of fuels was used for the comparison.  
4. Benefit is up to 34 percent compared with conventional petroleum-based HFO/VLSFO, calculated on an energy basis. Well-to-wake GHG emissions reduction calculated using the equation as published in the Directive 2009/30/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council Annex IV A and EN 16258.
