Alternative fuels – such as hydrogen, biofuels and bioenergy – are a critical part of the decarbonisation transition and will be essential to the achievement of industrial and transportation decarbonisation in particular.
These diverse low carbon fuels have the potential to provide energy solutions for hard-to-abate sectors and processes, from green steel manufacturing to renewable industrial heat, sustainable aviation fuel and the production of essential chemicals. CEFC finance aims to help accelerate the evolution of alternative fuel feedstocks, processes and end-user markets, working with institutional investors to back early-stage and demonstration projects. This includes finance for hydrogen-related technologies through the Advancing Hydrogen and Innovation Funds, alongside investments in large-scale waste and recycling.

Ark Energy hydrogen trucks support green zinc
Read moreVehicles in the heavy transport sector have ultra-heavy payloads and typically operate around the clock, so cannot be off the road for several hours to recharge. These unique Hyzon trucks will be custom built for Australian conditions, fast tracking the switch to clean energy in Australia’s ultra-heavy transport sector by several years.Ian LearmonthCEO, CEFC
Turning waste into Processed Engineered Fuel
Read moreAt ResourceCo we are committed to playing a key role in helping to achieve Federal Government environmental targets, including waste reduction and carbon emission avoidance. With critical finance support from the CEFC, the opening of the NSW alternative fuel plant will work to achieve just that.Simon BrownManaging Director, ResourceCo
Australia’s second energy from waste plant will reduce landfill and generate more clean energy
Read moreThe $511 million East Rockingham Waste to Energy facility in WA will help tackle Australia’s rising waste management problem by diverting waste from landfill. It will also generate renewable baseload energy to support WA’s electricity network.
Richgro green thumb grows green power
Read moreWe recycle solid and liquid waste from nearby breweries, chicken farms, supermarkets and other food suppliers, right down to the aluminium cans from out-of-date or damaged beverages. Everything gets recycled which is a win-win situation for everyone – we use the energy created to fully power the plant and we use the digestate by-product, which is packed with living micro-organisms and nutrients, in our range of Richgro garden products.Geoff RichardsChairman, Richgro
