Fuel for Tomorrow.
leading the Global transition from fossil hydrocarbons to Unlimited carbon-neutral synthetic fuel.
Synergetic’s process delivers carbon-neutral and cost-competitive synthetic fuel at gigaton scale.
Our fuels are drop-in substitutable for diesel, gasoline, and Aviation fuel without the need for retrofit of existing engine or turbine infrastructure,.
The Synergetic solution exists at the convergence of recent step-change innovations in thermal power, electrolysis, and carbon capture from atmosphere and seawater. We achieve breakthrough unit economics by coupling this infrastructure with high-productivity platforms, including geothermal heat, offshore production, and shipyard construction.
Synergetic’s mission is one of the most imperative opportunities of the 21st century. We are engineers, systems integrators, and team builders who have dedicated our careers to delivering economically-superior clean power through advanced energy projects.
Synergetic delivers chemically-superior and carbon-neutral substitute fuels, viable across the most difficult-to-decarbonize sectors of our economy. We have settled on Aviation as our highest priority sector, to solve the current market problem of scarce and expensive turbine-ready alternative fuels.
In 2019, the global merchant shipping fleet consisted of nearly 56,000 vessels, carrying approximately 11 billion metric tonnes of cargo. This does not include over 4,400 passenger vessels, over 3,300 military vessels, nor the global fleet of 30 million pleasure craft. The International Maritime Organization (IMO) projects that marine shipping activity will increase up to 250% by 2050 from 2019 levels. The industry consumed approximately 270 billion liters of liquid fuels in 2019.
Today the aviation market demands over 360 billion liters of fuel per year. Energy agencies project this demand will increase to over 900 billion liters per year by 2050. Electrification with known technologies is not viable to replace the high energy density fuel inputs required to operate jet turbines.
Airlines currently pay a ~700% price premium for limited amounts of clean fuels. Even with these price premiums, supply remains scarce. Synergetic delivers capital-efficient substitute fuel for airlines worldwide, uncapped by the inherently limited supply of expensive biowaste inputs, such as waste food oil or crops.
The fuels in use today throughout the global transport system are almost exclusively liquid hydrocarbons refined from petroleum. Their combustion emits carbon dioxide as well as a plurality of other pollutants. Liquid transport fuels have become indispensable to modern society, consumed at a rate of over 4.4 trillion liters per year, and growing.
Synthetic fuels are both chemically-superior to petroleum-based fuels, as well as synthesized from abundant clean feedstocks such as air and water. Synergetic’s fuels are manufactured with clean processes such as high temperature electrolysis yielding green hydrogen. Synergetic combines this pure hydrogen with carbon from CO2 captured from the atmosphere and seawater.
Fuel synthesis technology has existed for over 100 years, although it has historically required emissions-intensive energy inputs. Synergetic delivers synthetic fuel production solutions that utilize clean and low-cost energy to produce carbon-neutral fuels beyond the limited constraints of fossil fuel reserves.
The Synergetic team brings together world experts from diverse industrial disciplines including shipbuilding, chemical processing, project management, systems integration, aviation, geothermal energy, nuclear energy, and project finance.
Our solution lies at the convergence of step-change technological breakthroughs, enabling new capabilities to synthesize net-zero liquid fuels at lower cost than fossil incumbents.
clean power sources including Superhot Rock Geothermal
Clean inputs of air and water
mature Chemical processes, powered by clean energy
Found in various locations around the globe, tapping into this robust and clean energy source for the production of Net Zero Fuels enables the mobilization of immobile thermal energy.
LARGE SCALE HYDROELECTRIC
Large hydroelectric resources are some of the cleanest, most consistent energy sources on earth. Synergetic provides a new opportunity to harness these systems for the production of Net Zero Fuels, to be mobilized anywhere on the planet.
Small high-temperature nuclear systems are on the cusp of widespread commercial adoption. These systems are low-cost and right-sized for industrial applications requiring high-quality process heat, including fuel synthesis.
SOLAR AND WIND
Solar and wind resources are often found in places that are not close to the point of demand, rendering them stranded. Using valuable solar and wind capacity to make Net Zero Fuels enables easy energy transport to the point of demand while harnessing and mobilizing the power of the sun.

OFFSHORE PRODUCTION ENVIRONMENTS
Small power systems, carbon and hydrogen production systems, and processing systems are built modularly into offshore production platforms, that are built serially in shipyards. This offers the most efficient and smallest-land footprint method for modular construction.
Shipyard manufacturing is proven to be a highly efficient method for large-scale industrial manufacturing. Its’ ability to reduce land footprints and increase efficiencies through serial construction has been well demonstrated.
Synergetic is a proud signatory to the United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative. Synergetic has committed itself, along with thousands of other organizations around the world, to aligning its business practices with universal principals on human rights, labour, the environment and corporate corruption.
Net Zero Fuels are sustainable. Net Zero Fuels address 13 of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, or SDGs. Please see below to read about how Net Zero Fuels addresses each of these 13 SDGs.
These reports have been authored by founding shareholders of Synergetic. They are both recognized as seminal studies for the global energy industry, and contribute to the foundation of Synergetic’s core philosophy.
