Haldor Topsoe has joined an ambitious sustainable fuel project in Denmark that seeks to develop a hydrogen and sustainable fuel facility based on electrolysis.

The innovative project, based in the Greater Copenhagen Area, is expected to be completed by 2030 in three stages, reaching 10 MW capacity in 2023, 250 MW in 2027, and 1.3 GW in 2030.

Roeland Baan, Haldor Topsoe’s CEO, said: “For sustainable fuels to become competitive with fossil fuels, technologies must be matured and ultimately become available and proven on an industrial scale.

“Partnerships like this are the way to achieve that. Topsoe contributes to this transition with the necessary carbon emission reduction technology, particularly within efficient hydrogen production from solid oxide cell electrolysis and proven technologies to produce sustainable fuels like jet fuel, ammonia, and methanol, which are in focus in this project.”

Topsoe has recently joined the project and the partners, Orsted, Copenhagen Airports, A.P. Moller – Maersk, DSV Panalpina, DFDS, SAS, Nel, and Everfuel. Together, the firms cover the whole value chain for renewable hydrogen and sustainable fuels.

According to Topsoe, the firm will contribute expertise on technologies that convert captured carbon dioxide into sustainable methanol and jet fuel, using hydrogen from electrolysis of water.

In addition to a triple-digit million investment from the firms involved in the project, the partners have applied for ‘substantial’ funding from Innovation Fund Denmark.
