Mabanaft to buy 500 million litres of eFuels from Chile green hydrogen project

German energy trader Mabanaft said it will buy up to 500 million litres of carbon neutral eFuels from a first-of-its-kind green hydrogen production plant in Chile.

A consortium of international companies, including Chilean power company AME, Enel Green Power (EGP), Siemens Energy and Porsche, are working on the pilot project, which is expected to yield the world’s first integrated, commercial industrial-scale plant for making synthetic climate-neutral fuels (eFuels).

The ‘Haru Oni’ pilot project in Magallanes Province takes advantage of the excellent wind conditions in southern Chile to produce climate-neutral fuel with the aid of green wind power.

Around 130,000 of eFuels will be produced as early as 2022 in the pilot phase, with capacity increased to about 55 million litres of eFuels a year by 2024, and around 550 million litres of eFuels by 2026.
