Earlier this year, the partnering companies conducted a pre-feasibility study on the carbon-neutral fuel in order to assess to what extent the project can contribute to industrial, transport and energy applications.

An agreement was made to move towards a 4 – 10 Megawatts (MW) installation, with a 10 MW plant reducing CO2 emissions by 16,500 tonnes per year, enough to power up to 250 heavy freight vehicles.
