ABOUT THE TEAM

“There is a very strong global push to decarbonize all means of transport. Sustainable fuels play a critical role here. STX’s Biofuels Desk sources feedstocks and sustainable fuels globally to support this energy transition. We currently have the strongest team I had the pleasure of working with since I started at STX 10 years ago. All members bring something unique to the table – for instance, where one has extraordinary analytical skills, another is technically strong or excellent at research. By bringing all these skills and various areas of expertise together, our team is able to operate at the highest level.” –  Christiaan Domburg, Managing Partner, Fuels
