Carbon Capture and Synthetic Fuels

The capture of CO2 from the atmosphere or from industrial processes is highly relevant because the captured CO2 can then be combined with H2V as a base to produce synthetic fuels or other chemical inputs, for example, from green methanol.


In this way, we obtain carbon neutral fuels, which can be used directly in existing engines or thermal processes, with minor modifications and/or in some cases without modifications, and even using the current distribution, storage and transportation infrastructure, facilitating the energy transition and enabling demand for H2V in advance.

Why synthetic fuels?

  • It is possible to take advantage of the existing infrastructure, since synthetic fuels have similar characteristics to traditional fuels.

  • It is possible to take advantage of available equipment and vehicle fleets, because minor modifications and adjustments are needed, especially if synthetic fuels are to be used in internal combustion engines.
  • As hydrogen is an intermediate product in the Power-to-X chain, while synthetic fuels are produced and applied, the industry also builds capacity and human capital around H2V.
  • Due to the ease of storing and transporting these hydrogen derivatives, compounds such as methanol or green ammonia represent interesting energy carriers for export to markets such as Europe.
  • While it is possible to synthesize fuels similar to conventional fossil fuels, it is also possible to produce methanol and ammonia, compounds that already have an established market (demand).
