Decarbonization Topsoe to Supply Technology for New E-Fuels Facility in USA
HIF Global will develop the e-fuels plant in Matagorda County in Texas, USA and the project is expected to produce 200 million gallons of carbon-neutral gasoline annually. Construction of the plant will begin by 2023 and first production is scheduled for 2026.
Lyngby/Denmark – Topsoe will deliver technology to HIF Global’s (HIF) planned e-fuels facility in Texas, USA. The plant will produce carbon-neutral fuel – enough to decarbonize over 400,000 vehicles annually. e-fuels are produced by combining green hydrogen made from renewable power, and recycled carbon dioxide. HIF´s facility in Texas will help remove 2 million tons of CO2 from the air every year.
Topsoe delivers basic engineering and license for methanol synthesis and Tigas gasoline synthesis technologies. Later in the project, Topsoe’s scope will be extended to supply methanol reactors and catalysts.
Roeland Baan, CEO at Topsoe, said: “We are proud that HIF Global has selected our technology for this truly innovative project which will contribute to decarbonizing US transportation. This is our first involvement in a commercial scale Power-to-X facility producing gasoline. Our technology will be used to directly convert renewable hydrogen and CO2 to methanol, which is further converted into plug and play gasoline.”
