Swedish electric utility company Övik Energi will provide the carbon dioxide and site for Liquid Wind’s first commercial-scale electro-fuel facility that will combine captured carbon emissions with renewable hydrogen to form carbon neutral fuel.
Liquid Wind today (5th Nov) announced the significant step forward, having secured the site on the north east cost of Sweden, where it will also have a carbon dioxide source from Övik Energi operations and access to low cost renewable electricity needed to produce the fuel.
In the Liquid Wind facility, green hydrogen will be produced from renewable electricity and water. This hydrogen will then be combined with the captured carbon dioxide in a reactor to form the methanol fuel.
Once functioning, the site will upcycle 70,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide into 50,000 tonnes of carbon neutral fuel that will be used by the marine industry for carbon neutral shipping.
