The mobile chemical pilot plant can be used decentrally producing gasoline, diesel, and kerosene from regenerative hydrogen and carbon dioxide. The team believes production of fuels from regenerative electric power is a component of the energy turnaround.
INERATEC, a spinoff of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), cooperated with Finnish partners. The processor is so compact that it fits into a shipping container and can be extended modularly.
Professor Thomas Hirth, KIT Vice President for Innovation and International Affairs said, “Success of the energy transition needs innovations generated by research extending from fundamentals to applications. The success of SOLETAIR reflects the importance of international research networks that tackle global challenges and develop applicable solutions.”
