VTT leads 15 partners in e-fuels R&D projet

February 9, 2021 |

In Finland, an e-fuel research project related to Neste’s Veturi program was launched in January 2021. Headed by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, the project brings together 15 partners to engage in R&D cooperation with the goal of large-scale production and commercialization of e-fuels.

The two-year, over six-million-euro project will develop the production of new synthetic fuels. Without sizable development efforts, production cannot be sustainably scaled to the level needed to meet the increasing demand.

Cooperating in the e-fuel project further strengthens Neste’s diverse network of partners advancing the production of e-fuels based on renewable electricity and recycled carbon dioxide. The cooperation includes companies from the entire e-fuels value chain – from renewable electricity production to users of synthetic fuels.

There are three key technologies at the core of the project’s development work: electrolysis needed for the production of renewable hydrogen, carbon capture, and producing fuels from hydrogen and carbon dioxide. Cost effectiveness and high efficiency are essential in driving all areas to commercial maturity.
