Infinium teams with ENGIE on French electrofuels Reuze project

February 7, 2022 |

In California, Infinium announced a strategic partnership with ENGIE to develop a facility that would produce ultra-low carbon Infinium electrofuels at scale for the local transportation industry. The new ‘Reuze’ project includes the development of one of Europe’s largest announced CO2 conversion hubs, located in France, which will enable the conversion of hundreds of thousands of tons of CO2 emissions from ArcelorMittal into clean electrofuels for the European market.

Infinium electrofuels technology converts renewable power into green hydrogen, then uses the green hydrogen and waste CO2 to produce ultra-low carbon fuels. This unique approach offers an integrated end to end process to produce fuels directly on-site. These fuels are an instant replacement for traditional jet fuel and diesel, and can be directly used in planes, ships and truck fleets without changes in infrastructure or engine design. With this facility, Infinium is helping to meet local demand for sustainable aviation fuels and low-carbon shipping, and comparable projects are in development by Infinium in other global energy hubs.

The ‘Reuze’ project will leverage one of the largest electrolyzer systems announced to date in Europe and is designed to neutralize 300,000 tons of CO2 per year using CO2 emissions from ArcelorMittal’s local steel production activities. With support from French authorities in the region, this new project has the potential to transform Dunkirk into one of the most notable circular carbon economy hubs in the world.
