About us

Let's take on the biggest challenge of our lifetime

 

We rise to preserve our climate and make aviation sustainable    

Norsk e-Fuel was founded in 2019 to drive the transition to renewable aviation by establishing industrial production of sustainable fuels based on CO2 and water.

Aviation is one of the industries where it is particularly challenging to reduce emissions, yet it has been the fastest growing sector in transportation in recent years.

Together with our owners and carefully selected partners, Norsk e-Fuel is set to bring Power-to-Liquid production to industrial scale. As project developer, we are establishing large-scale production sites to deliver synthetic fuels to the aviation industry. We are determined to develop a new value-chain for sustainable fuels, leaving fossil fuels in the ground and allowing you to take off with a greener conscience!
