the pioneer of liquid fuels from recycled CO2, today
announced that Tom Jensen, Executive Vice President Head of Corporate
Development, will participate in the much anticipated COP21
summit, an annual conference that this year expects to bring 50,000
participants from more than 190 countries together to discuss solutions
to climate change. At the event, kicking off in Paris this week, Jensen
will be discussing the potential of carbon neutral fuels to supply the
world’s mobility and transportation needs.
Joule will be presenting at the Enterprises pour l’Environnement (EpE)
conference where Jensen will focus on the future of low carbon fuels and
their ability to enable low carbon mobility, in addition to discussing
the near term dissemination of Joule’s diversified technology solutions.
Specifically, Jensen will be exploring how much transportation is
possible with different mobility solutions within the next 15-35 years
and the feasibility of these under the 2°C scenario in a moderated panel
with executives from EpE, The Norwegian Trade Association, AXA,
Ontario’s Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change and
Saint-Gobain. This panel, “And now what? Business solutions for
climate,” will be taking place on Friday, December 4 at 1:00 p.m. CET.
EpE is an association of more than 40 French and international large
companies from all sectors of the economy who want to make environmental
considerations more a part of both their long-term planning and their
Jensen will also be speaking at Low Carbon Technology Partnership
Initiative's (LCTPi) Low Carbon Transport Fuels event to discuss the
viability of Joule’s technology and low carbon fuel alternative to
mitigate climate change and global warming, with a particular focus on
how to achieve a carbon compliant transportation sector. At the LCTPi
event, Jensen will be joined by executives from WBCSD, Audi, Granbio,
POET and Pannonia. The session will take place at 9:30 a.m. CET on
Saturday, December 5 at Le Bourget. LCPTi is a program led by the World
Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), Sustainable
Development Solutions Network (SDSN) and the International Energy Agency
(IEA) which provides a platform for international companies and
stakeholders to work together on shared action plans for the large-scale
development and deployment of low carbon technologies.
"As the world’s most influential leaders and innovators come together
for this pivotal COP21 event, we look forward to participating in the
transition from conversation about climate change to developing
technologies, partnerships and policies that will enable changes to
improve our planet,” said Jensen. “The entire Joule team remains highly
dedicated to achieving a carbon compliant transportation sector and we
are optimistic that our diversified technology platform will help
demonstrate at COP21 the feasibility of financially viable low carbon
COP21, organized by the United Nations Environment Programme, will
convene cross-sector participants from business, government, finance,
UN, NGO and civil society from all over the world in an effort to
achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on climate, with the
aim of keeping global warming below 2°C. Additional information is

Joule develops technology platforms for the
production of sustainable, drop in, low carbon transportation fuels. The
company pioneered a direct CO2-to-fuel production platform, effectively
reversing combustion through the use of solar energy. This platform
applies engineered catalysts to continuously convert waste CO2 directly
into renewable fuels such as ethanol or hydrocarbons for diesel, jet
fuel, and gasoline. Flexible to utilize a variety of feedstocks,
geographies, and climates, Joule’s processes enable unrivaled
scalability and volume at optimal cost. Joule is privately held and has
raised over $200 million in funding to date, led by Flagship Ventures.
The company operates from Bedford, Massachusetts and The Hague, The
Netherlands with production operations in Hobbs, New Mexico.
