Norsk e-Fuel Planning Europe’s First Commercial Plant for Hydrogen-Based RAF

The title of this post, is the same as that, of this article on Renewable Energy Magazine.

This is the introductory paragraph.

Norske e-Fuel AS, the new European industry consortium headquartered in Oslo, has plans to industrialize Power-to-Liquid technology (PtL) in Norway for the European Market. The new state-of-the-art project will allow the conversion of Norway’s extensive renewable electricity resources into renewable fuels.

This paragraph explains the process.

Using a single step co-electrolysis process, the innovative technologies of Sunfire and Climeworks convert renewable electricity, water and CO2 captured from ambient air and unavoidable CO2 sources into syngas. Renewable fuels, such as jet fuel, are then produced through further processing and refining. The certified end products can be used directly in existing infrastructures.

Note.

  1. Climeworks is a company that captures carbon from the atmosphere.
  2. It is a very different process to that used by Altalto, which I wrote about in Grant Shapps Announcement On Friday, Altalto use household, industrial and woody waste as a starting point.
  3. However both processes use syngas, as an intermediate.

Wikipedia describes syngas as a fuel gas mixture consisting primarily of hydrogen, carbon monoxide, and very often some carbon dioxide.
