    Inside passage decarbonization project (IPDP)

    The goal: A cleaner greener passage: one boat, one fuel station, one state, one province at a time. We want to dramatically reduce carbon in the Pacific NW Inside Passage, now.

    Fishermen, bands, tribes, ports, marine fuel suppliers, chandleries, boaters – both commercial and recreational - want clean, productive and beautiful water to work, play and live by.

    The mission: To inspire, support and ask boaters, suppliers and municipalities to protect and enhance the health of people, wildlife and the Inside Passage ecosystem, while voyaging safely, reliably and affordably through the beloved but threatened waterway. 

    The plan: To replace high carbon tar sands fuel with compatible, waste-sourced, locally-produced, bio-based renewable fuels and renewable electric shore-power for vessel battery charging.

    The IPDP offers green economic development and new job opportunities through the development of appropriately-scaled renewable fuel and electricity production.

    All details about the Inside Passage Decarbonization Project plus the story of the design, voyages, teaching and experiences aboard Ama Natura can be found on https://www.decarbthepassage.net
