Dr Dan Poulter was pleased to meet today with local innovations company, RockFuel Innovations. RockFuel Innovations designs and patents green energy inventions to help overcome some of the environmental threats to our planet.
Dr Dan learned more about how the RockFuel process makes carbon neutral biodiesel for standard diesel engines and suitable for low emission zones. As part of the manufacturing process, it also produces quicklime (calcium oxide), which can capture and hold more CO2 than is released
when the fuel is produced, so the entire process is carbon neutral and potentially even carbon negative.
Dr Dan also learned that the process has direct benefits for the earth's air pollution and climate change problems, specifically rising CO2 levels, poisons in the atmosphere and increasing ocean acidity.
A truly carbon neutral diesel would put standard diesel engines on an environmentally level playing field with electric cars, and Dr Dan raising this issue directly with Government over the coming weeks and months.

As my right hon. Friend rightly...
