April 13 (Renewables Now) – German renewables developer Enertrag SE, Mexican constructing supplies maker Cemex (NYSE:CX) and a unit of South African chemical substances firm Sasol (JSE:SOL) will collectively work to supply sustainable aviation gas (SAF) utilizing carbon dioxide from cement manufacturing and inexperienced hydrogen.
The undertaking will happen at Cemex’s manufacturing unit in Ruedersdorf close to Berlin the place carbon dioxide shall be captured throughout cement manufacturing. The greenhouse gasoline shall be then combined with inexperienced hydrogen produced by Enertrag from regional wind and photo voltaic crops into synthesis gasoline. With the assistance of a expertise developed by Sasol’s ecoFT unit, the synthesis gasoline shall be transformed into longer chain hydrocarbons for the manufacturing of e-kerosene or SAF.
Within the preliminary part, 15,000 tonnes of e-kerosene shall be produced yearly utilizing 100 tonnes of carbon dioxide and 12 tonnes of inexperienced hydrogen per day.
Enertrag will produce the inexperienced hydrogen as a part of the Electrolysis Hall East Germany undertaking with an electrolysis capability of 210 MW which shall be sufficient to supply 35,000 tonnes of e-kerosene gas yearly.
The undertaking shall be carried out by Concrete Chemical compounds GmbH, an equally-owned three way partnership that was established by the three companions within the initiative. The consortium is planning to use for funding to finance the undertaking.
