Our member VTT and Neste have agreed to build a technology demonstration facility at the VTT Bioruukki Pilot Centre in Espoo (FI). In 2022 and 2023 electrolysis, CO2 capture, and synthesis units located in sea containers will be connected to each other, as well as to the VTT Bioruukki research infrastructure. The E-fuel project pilot runs are expected to be completed by 2023.
The technology demonstration will use CO2 captured from flue gases, hydrogen production by highly efficient high-temperature electrolysis and fuel synthesis based on Fischer-Tropsch technology.
Both the CO2 capture and electrolysis solutions are provided by Finnish companies Kleener Power Solutions Oy and Carbonreuse Finland Oy, as well as Convion Oy and Elcogen Oy. VTT will provide the fuel synthesis unit and technology and Neste carries out upgrading of the synthetic crude oil into fuel products fulfilling the specifications.
