Joule is the answer to affordable, renewable fuel, bringing meaningful innovation to an industry long hindered by incremental progress. Our mission is nothing short of world-changing – using advanced bioscience and robust, scalable systems capable of producing liquid fuel on a scale, and at a cost, to make energy independence a reality.
Joule has identified and is systematically tackling the roadblocks standing in the path of a game-winning alternative to fossil fuels. Biofuel models, even the newer biomass-derived cellulosic and algal approaches, have known limitations, requiring high-cost production (such as harvesting) and large amounts of water, agricultural land and feedstock. The path to energy independence requires an integrated solution, not just piecemeal applications. It requires highly-efficient process engineering, minimal use of natural resources, a system that scales to meet massive demand, and pricing at or below that of fossil fuels.
