Finnair participates in study for CO2 and hydrogen fuels pilot

December 21, 2019 |

In Finland, Finnair, Lappeenranta-Lahti University of Technology LUT, and a group of other companies have started a feasibility study for a synthetic fuels pilot production plant. The pilot plant would use CO2 from Finnsementti cement facility in Lappeenranta and the excess hydrogen from Kemira’s production as main raw materials.

CO2 and hydrogen can be brought together in a synthesis process, giving synthetic methanol as a result. Methanol can be further processed into for example synthetic, emission free transportation fuels.

The intended industrial scale pilot facility is based on power-to-x technology, and the target is to produce carbon neutral fuels for transportation. The pilot plant would be located in Joutseno, Eastern Finland.
