Mitsubishi Heavy Industries signs MOU with Infinium for CO2, hydrogen fuel tech

April 24, 2022 |

In Japan, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. signed a Memorandum of Understanding with California-based Infinium, which has proprietary technology that converts carbon dioxide and hydrogen into ultra-low carbon fuels—known as Electrofuels—for use in today’s planes, ships and truck fleets.

The agreement, which builds on MHI’s 2021 investment in Infinium, will focus on exploring the deployment of Infinium’s proprietary Electrofuels technology in the Japanese market.

Infinium Electrofuels are classified as ultra-low carbon fuels because they reduce carbon dioxide emissions by up to 97 percent when compared to traditional jet and diesel fuels. They are a drop-in replacement for fossil-based fuels and can be used in airplanes, trucks, and ships without the need for costly engine modifications.

By combining Infinium Electrofuels production technology with MHI Group’s CO₂ capture technology and value chain solutions, MHI aims to accelerate the realization of a carbon-neutral society in Japan, alongside its existing strategies such as EV oriented transportation, CO2 recovery and carbon offsets.
