Supplying your
    renewable fuel. Unlimited.

    On the road to climate neutral transportation

We exist to make transportation renewable

By substituting fossil crude oil through
renewable fuel

Generated from CO2 and water using 100 % Norwegian renewable electricity

To achieve climate neutral transportation

Converting renewable electricity, saving the earth

"Norsk e-Fuel realizes the European lighthouse project
in order to bring society a step closer towards a sustainable future
by focusing on our goal to achieve climate neutral transportation."


Registered in Norway, the consortium combines technological force and industrial strength. Powered by Sunfire’s and Climeworks’ proprietary technology based on worldwide patents we strive to make climate neutral transportation possible: We bring together Sunfire’s most efficient and economic electroylzers and Climeworks’ state-of-the-art Direct Air Capture technology. Paul Wurth (SMS group), one of the world leading EPC partners will provide the necessary know-how to make industrialisation possible. Combined with their corporate strength and with Valinor’s local competence and expertise for the Norwegian energy market we will make the goal of climate neutral transportation a reality.

The demonstration:
10 Million liters of renewable fuel

Within the next 3 years, we will start operating our first industrial plant in Herøya providing 10 million liters of renewable fuel annually for the Norwegian and European fuels market. The site in Herøya offers access to crucial infrastructures needed for the pilot plant to be a success.

The roll-out:
100 Million liter blue print plant

The location of the first plant in Herøya perfectly fits the needs for the envisioned upscaling. With a production capacity of 100 Million liters annually, the plant layout will serve as blueprint for following nationwide roll-out. One full-sized plant would effectively cut the current flight emissions of the top 5 most frequently serviced flight routes within Norway by about 50 %.

The Future:
climate neutral transportation

We make the conversion of Norway extensive renewable electricity resources to renewable fuels possible. The technologies of Sunfire and Climeworks allow us to be independent and flexible so we can go wherever renewable electricity is abundantly available.

"We are honored to welcome the establishment of Norsk e-Fuel in Norway and believe this will have strong impact in the promotion of energy efficient and economic Power-to-Liquid pathway in Europe. The technology behind Norsk e-Fuel is a powerful addition to Norway’s ambition in creating successful energy transition, and we look forward to future cooperation to support large scale production"

Further information

Norsk e-Fuel is planning Europe’s first commercial plant for renewable aviation fuel in Norway. The leading industry consortium joins forces to make unlimited renewable fuel a reality to achieve climate-neutral transportation. Located in Herøya, Porsgrunn, Norsk e-fuel is generating renewable fuels from CO2 & water using 100 % renewable electricity. The output of the first plant will provide enough to cut CO2 emissions of the top five domestic aviation routes in Norway in half.


There are currently no vacancies at Norsk e-Fuel.
