HIF Global and Topsoe partner for eFuels facility in Texas

Topsoe will deliver technology to HIF Global’s planned e-Fuels facility in Texas. The plant will produce carbon-neutral fuel–enough to decarbonize over 400,000 vehicles annually. E-Fuels are produced by combining green H2 made from renewable power, and recycled CO2. HIF´s facility in Texas will help remove 2 MMtpy of CO2 from the air.

Topsoe delivers basic engineering and license for methanol synthesis and TIGASTM gasoline synthesis technologies. Later in the project, Topsoe’s scope will be extended to supply methanol reactors and catalysts.

Roeland Baan, CEO at Topsoe said, “We are proud that HIF Global has selected our technology for this truly innovative project which will contribute to decarbonizing US transportation. This is our first involvement in a commercial scale Power-to-X facility producing gasoline. Our technology will be used to directly convert renewable hydrogen and CO2 to methanol, which is further converted into plug and play gasoline. We are excited to showcase our capabilities in this field and apply the Topsoe methanol and TIGASTM technology for e-Fuels.”

The gasoline synthesis from methanol has been commercially proven in a 15000-bpd plant in Turkmenistan since 2019.

Renato Pereira, CEO at HIF U.S. said, “We look forward to partnering with Topsoe and utilizing its state-of-the-art technology within our Matagorda County facility. Carbon-neutral e-Fuels represent the energy sector’s next frontier, enabling renewable resources to fuel our mobile economy.”
