Low Carbon Molecules

Our expertise

In order to reach 2050 decarbonization targets, low carbon molecules will be necessary to cut emissions in the hard-to-abate sectors such as heavy-fleet transportation, aviation, maritime and industrial applications. Driven by strong demand and supported by unprecedented policy support, including the Inflation Reduction Act, low carbon molecules (Renewable Natural Gas, Renewable Diesel, Sustainable Aviation Fuel, Hydrogen and Carbon Capture) are viewed as the next wave of growth and are expected to play a crucial role in the energy transition.

Nomura Greentech has differentiated knowledge of market structures and commercial pathways combined with structuring and transaction expertise to match capital with actionable opportunities. We continue to be a leader in advising companies and investors which are at the forefront of low carbon molecules, working with incumbents and financial investors to expand their portfolios and helping innovators raise capital to accelerate their growth.

industry verticals

Focused on low carbon molecules with capabilities to abate the emissions of hard-to-abate sectors today

Renewable Natural Gas (“RNG”)
  • RNG derived from dairy, landfill, organic and water treatment waste streams

Renewable Diesel (“RD”)
  • RD derived from animal fats, oilseeds and used cooking oil  

Sustainable Aviation Fuel (“SAF”)
  • SAF derived from bio-based feedstocks and synthetic fuels

Biomass-Based Fuels
  • Biodiesel, ethanol, renewable gasoline

  • Waste to RNG (animal, food, landfill and water treatment)

  • Feedstock for RD and SAF (animal fats, biogenic waste, corn, oilseeds, used cooking oil)

  • Electrolyzer, steam methane reformation and other carbon extraction technologies employed for hydrogen production

Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage
  • Carbon capture (direct air, point-source)

  • CO2 transportation (pipelines)

  • Utilization (building products, enhanced oil recovery, industrial applications, liquid fuels)

  • Storage (container and geologic)
