With the potential to remove 200Mn tonnes of net greenhouse gas emissions by 2035, adoption of sustainable biofuels by the long-haul transportation industry will be pivotal for the world to reach Net Zero.
Unfortunately, current options either require wholesale change to fleet and legacy infrastructure, or they are unable to scale and become commercially viable. Worse still, they are driving deforestation, replacing vital food crops and using up fresh drinking water
Over the last 12,000 years, studies suggest that human activities have actively removed 50% of tree cover, equating to the removal of 15 billion trees each year. Reducing the potential for carbon draw down.

Amazonian Rainforest

Around 20% of the Amazonian Rainforest has been removed for predominantly farming, along with habitation.

HBx is disruptive...but without the disruption

HBx has been optimised to thrive on salt or brackish water, thus helping to protect our precious drinking water.


Grown in enclosed bioreactors, HBx can be grown on unproductive, barren land and scaled by market demands.


By establishing bioreactors farms on unproductive land, our process does not drive deforestation.

Fuelling our Future Planet

Our biofuel can be stored, pumped and burnt in exactly the same way as diesel but crucially, can be grown in regions of the world that are devoid of vegetation. On land unsuitable for agriculture and doesn’t require scarce fresh water.

What Makes us Different

Other attempts at using micro algae for biofuel production failed because they simply started in the wrong place, with the wrong organisms.
We started at the beginning.
Ripped up the rule book, removed all boundaries and wrote a wish list. A set of criteria that described the perfect organism and it took ten years of tireless research. Seven relentless years on a floating lab, dredging the sea to whittle down over a trillion sample colonies to just 80.
Our resilience and determination were rewarded. A new genus to science and an organism with the power to transform an entire industry and put right the wrongs of human activity.

To create a planet that has a future. A future we want to be part of.


As temperatures rise and become more unstable, more areas will become affected by climate change, increasing the potential for mass migration


By utilising barren,unproductive land we can reduce the drive to cut down forests, avoiding habitat destruction so as to protect biodiversity


Increasing photosynthesis is our best hope for regeneration. By leveraging the power of plants and algae, we can start to rebalance the planet

With the potential to be carbon negative

At HutanBio, our algae-based biofuel technology can help change the tide on the climate emergency. Our technology and expertise are built on a decade of research. In total, a 120-person year prospecting journey to arrive at a place where we believe we are the world’s best route to decarbonise the long-distance transportation section.

Sustainable Development Goals

Our commitment
SDG goals were set up in 2019 to help mobilize what has been called a ‘decade of change’. An initiative formulated to help tackle poverty, empower women and girls and address the climate emergency.

Fuelling Climate Equity

Founded by world-leading Scientists, HutanBio supports Science Based Targets initiatives (SBTi) and our commitment is to address as many of the United Nations’ 17 goals as we expand and grow our business.

You see, our research has always been so much more than just developing a replacement fuel for diesel.

We believe micro-biodiversity holds the answers to solving climate change. By increasing the planet’s photosynthesis capacity and protecting our rainforests and the biodiversity that thrives within them, we can start to repair the damage done by humans.

Climate facts

Only 0.5 per cent of water on Earth is suitable for human consumption

Globally, almost one in ten people don't have enough food to live

Half of the world's habitable land is already used for agriculture
