A new hydrogen reality: Construction begins on the world’s first integrated e-fuels plant

A press of a buzzer, and just like that, work today (September 10) commenced on the world’s first integrated commercial plant producing hydrogen-based efuels in Chile.

Known as the Haru Oni project, the facility has huge ambitions to produce 130,000 litres of e-fuels, derived from green hydrogen, per year in its pilot phase, starting in 2022, for export all over the world.

Then, this will significantly scale up to produce 55 million litres of e-fuels by 2024 and ramp up to around 550 million litres of e-fuels by 2026 – and luxury car manufacturer Porche will be the first to utilise the produced fuels in its Mobil 1 Supercup race cars.
