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.
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 %.

Avinor: "We need sustainable aviation fuel"
Sustainable aviation fuel is essential for aviation to become fossil-free within 2050, and power-to-liquid is expected to take an increasing share, according to Avinor.
Innovation Norway: “Norsk e-Fuel is most welcome”
A very strong consortium and great technology are among the key advantages of Norsk e-Fuel, according to two experts in Innovation Norway.
