CO2 is one of the main feedstocks to produce e-Fuels. To cater for the site-independent and circular production of e-Fuels, it is Norsk e-Fuel’s core and long-term vision to use CO2 captured directly from air (DAC). While Climeworks’ latest DAC technology will be integrated in the production process in Mosjøen, the company will still rely on point sources to complement the CO2 supply. This makes “carbon capture as a service” partners such as Carbon Centric essential, as they are providing access to the feedstock and respective infrastructure for the growing Carbon Capture and Utilization (CCU) industry.
