Sundsvall Energi will accomplice with Liquid Wind to be the host and supply carbon dioxide for the second commercial-scale—100,000 t—electrofuel facility in Sweden. Biogenic carbon dioxide from the Sundsvall vitality facility shall be captured and mixed with renewable hydrogen to generate inexperienced electrofuel, eMethanol. The gasoline is meant for the maritime business to help the transition to carbon impartial delivery.

Sundsvall Energi, biogenic CO2 provider and host for FlagshipTWO

We’re excited to announce FlagshipTWO—a undertaking that may additional strengthen Sweden’s place within the inexperienced transition whereas supporting native fossil-free gasoline manufacturing. The power in Sundsvall can have twice the capability in comparison with FlagshipONE in Örnsköldsvik, and can serve the maritime market.

—Claes Fredriksson, CEO and Founding father of Liquid Wind

The 2 corporations will work carefully to combine their operations. Liquid Wind’s facility shall be constructed on Sundsvall Energi’s Korstaverket website. Utilizing environment friendly carbon seize expertise, Liquid Wind goals to seize all CO2 emitted from Korstaverket: 240,000 tonnes per 12 months.

Within the Liquid Wind facility, inexperienced hydrogen shall be produced from extra renewable electrical energy and water. This hydrogen will then be mixed with the biogenic fraction of the captured CO2 in a reactor to type eMethanol. The 2 amenities may even be carefully built-in to alternate steam, waste warmth and different course of medias to maximise use of assets.

The fossil fraction of CO2 is additional processed by Sundsvall Energi for long-term storage within the bedrock: CCS, (Carbon Seize and Storage).

Liquid Wind has a powerful group of strategic companions which can provide expertise and the experience to provide eMethanol. It’s an skilled workforce that additionally has labored collectively on FlagshipONE. Going ahead they may design the expertise integration and engineer the power, in shut collaboration with Sundsvall Energi.

The purpose is to make the funding determination in late 2023, topic to environmental allowing course of and extension of the electrical energy grid connection. With a development time of roughly two years, the electrofuel is deliberate to be accessible by the tip of 2025 or early 2026.
