“There’s a company called C****n E********g that has developed a plant capable of transforming CO2 into cost effective aviation, shipping and truck fuel” he explains. “It creates effectively carbon neutral diesel and in the process, solves one of the most complex dilemmas of the energy system. When you think about how many boxes this ticks for the environment and society, there’s no question about why should we do it. Instead it’s how soon can we start?”. This is the kind of project Abundance hopes to fund and roll out on a commercial scale in coming years.

Presumably the same company that owns the intellectual property rights & patents to alchemy, looking forward to lead deposit being returned in gold; reminds me of the proverb "a fool & his money are easily parted." Where can I sign up?
Hmmm...I can see a use case for biodiesel in specialist areas that don't lend themselves to battery tech (aviation might be one), but carbon neutral it won't be and there's a more decent chance of unintended consequences eg existing carbon sinks like rainforests being cut down to grow it.
Regarding conspiracy, it would be easy to open source this stuff and impossible to contain it nowadays on the internet.
