Turning what we have into what we need

In simple terms, we transform CO2, water and electricity into renewable fuels. Compared to hydrogen or electricity as energy carriers, renewable, synthetic fuels (or “e-Fuels”) have unique advantages for the aviation industry; they can immediately be used in existing planes and infrastructures. Our approach is based on Power-to-Liquid (PtL) technology and is facilitated by a consortium of technology partners and industrial experts.

Saving 40 million tons of CO2 until 2040

Taking on the greatest challenge of our time, the world needs to cut CO2 emissions rapidly. International heavyweights like the IEA, the IPCC and the World Economic Forum agree that renewable, synthetic fuels are necessary to meet global climate ambitions. We believe carbon-neutral aviation fuel is the fastest way to renewable aviation. Our contribution to this is to save 40 million tons of CO2 by 2040.

Start of construction next year

Our first plant will start production in 2024 and will be gradually scaled to produce 25 million litres within 2026. Next year, in 2023, we will start to construct our first plant at Mosjøen in Northern Norway, and rapidly scale up production the coming years. Until 2029, the plant design will be further developed and a plant producing 100 million litres will enter operation. The size of such a scaled plant would effectively cut the current flight emissions of the top five most frequently serviced flight routes within Norway by around 50 %.

e-Fuels have unique advantages

 

Sunfire-Icon-Negativ_Liquid_fuel

Our e-Fuels bring great advantages in comparison to the other solutions such as direct electrification or hydrogen. The fact is that e-Fuel has a higher density than hydrogen and is lighter and more space-efficient than batteries. This makes e-Fuel a perfect solution, especially for long-distance flights, where greater amounts of energy are necessary.

Sunfire-Icon-Negativ_Plane

Our e-Fuel offers an alternative to creating carbon-neutral aviation fuel, without creating the need to build new airplanes or adjust international infrastructures for refuelling. Existing planes, pipelines, and distribution channels are already available worldwide. Hypothetically, an airline could switch to e-Fuel tomorrow and be ready to take off without changing their equipment.

Sunfire-Icon-Negativ_Biomass_source

Our e-Fuel can be blended with fossil-based fuels up to 50 % – and higher shares will likely be admissible soon. It burns cleaner, it has no sulfur content, and reduces particle emission.

Sunfire-Icon-Negativ_Agriculture

Our e-Fuel has compared to other Sustainable Aviation Fuels, such as biofuel, our fuel production has the benefit that the production is eight times more efficient on land use and needs 95 % less water and does not compete with the production of food crops. We can leave fossil-based energy carriers where they belong and where they permanently store CO2 - beneath the surface.
