The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face. One of the goals is to take action to combat the climate change and its impacts.
ChangeXL focuses on three of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s):
Affordable and clean energy
ChangeXL enable its customers to reduce emissions of the fuels they use, thus improving local air quality at an affordable price by reducing the cost of operations
Industry Innovation and infrastructure
ChangeXL makes use of existing infrastructure, thus avoiding the need for expensive new investments to accommodate entirely new fuels with lower throughputs
At the same time the use of ChangeXL addresses problems within the industry by cleaning up the existing storage systems, extending the life time of storage tank and addressing challenges around fuel contamination.
The need for tackling climate change is a key driver for ChangeXL
By improving the efficiency of the combustion process, ChangeXL reduces fuel consumption which translates to lower CO2 emissions in today’s engines.
Climate change is now affecting every country on every continent. The pace of change is quickening as more people are turning to renewable energy and a range of other measures that will reduce emissions and increase adaptation efforts. Climate change, however, is a global challenge that does not respect national borders.
To strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change, countries adopted the Paris Agreement at the COP21 in Paris, which went into force in November of 2016. In the agreement, all countries agreed to work to limit global temperature rise to well below 2 degrees centigrade.
Despite ambitious goals to reduce CO2 emissions to keep global warming below 2 degrees Celcius current developments are not moving fast enough to ensure these targets will be met. The industry is expected to contribute its share, not only in terms of reducing CO2 emissions, but also in reducing other emissions which impact local air quality (SOx, NOx, PM). Although ChangeXL is not thé solution to all climate challenges, it is a practical, affordable solution to make an immediate difference whilst new transition technologies are being developed.
