As part of the 2021 Finance Act, the Danish government allocated DKK 700 million to investments in mission-driven research and development within four areas. One of these ‘InnoMissions’ was the development of green fuels for transport and industry. To drive the innovation within this area, the public-private partnership MissionGreenFuels was formed.


The MissionGreenFuels partnership focuses on how to fulfil the Danish climate goals of 70 percent greenhouse gas reduction by 2030, and net-zero by 2050, by decarbonising the heavy road transport, aviation, and shipping sectors through green fuels. The partnership aims to support Danish research, innovation, growth, job creation, and export potential within the field of green fuels.


The MissionGreenFuels project portfolio is divided into three strategic research and innovation areas, called ‘workstreams’, where green fuels are essential for the green transition. Aalborg University leads the MissionGreenFuels’ secretariat and is supported by Energy Cluster Denmark and the Danish Center for Energy Storage. The project has received funding from The Innovation Fund Denmark.
