Liquid Wind, a developer of commercial-scale electrofuel facilities, has partnered with a line-up of international decarbonization companies to establish the eFuel Design & Performance Centre (DPC) in Hørsholm, Denmark. Covering the entire value-chain of eFuel production, the centre was inaugurated earlier this week with the support of Alfa Laval, Carbon Clean, Siemens Energy, and Topsoe.

Representing a groundbreaking initiative, the collaborative eFuel DPC stands as the pioneering institution of its kind, featuring a unified research and development (R&D) division where all five partners will unite efforts to expedite facility deployment.

Claus Fredriksson, CEO and founder of Liquid Wind commented on the centre’s inauguration by saying: “We are delighted to be inaugurating the eFuel Design & Performance Centre, and to contribute with the project development know-how required for driving the electrification of the transportation sector. Our unique and long collaboration will continue to lead the green transition and production of sustainable fuels.”

On behalf of Alfa Laval, Julien Gennetier, VP Energy Division said that: “To accelerate decarbonization we need strong collaborations across the energy sector. We are therefore proud to be part of this partnership serving as a key technology provider. Our products and solutions actively support existing applications in the decarbonisation of electricity, heating & cooling, fuels and chemicals. The new Design & Performance Centre enhances our joint focus on innovation for faster implementation of scalable and commercially viable solutions in the eFuel area.”

The center is set to play a vital role in nurturing and perfecting the technical knowledge essential for the construction and deployment of eMethanol plants globally. One of the key features of the technology that the DPC will support is that the plants it will be helping develop will be ready-to-build. Achieved through streamlined fabrication, transportation, assembly, and activation processes, this is expected to reduce dramatically the costs and need for knowldge transfer for clients.

The establishment of the DPC is a milestone and is part of the achieving a target of designing and building eFuel facilities capable of producing 100,000 tons of eMethanol annually. As it stands there are three projects in various stages of development across the Nordics, with FlagshipONE leading the charge as the world’s inaugural commercial-scale eMethanol facility.

The overarching target is to speed up the development of up to ten additional plants by the end of 2027. These facilities will play a pivotal role in bolstering the global eMethanol market and fostering emissions reduction across hard-to-abate sectors, notably in the realm of global shipping.

Aniruddha Sharma, Chair and CEO of Carbon Clean commented on his company’s role in the DPC by saying: “We are proud to bring our expertise and experience to the eFuel Design & Performance Centre, which will foster an environment of innovation that will accelerate progress. Collaboration is essential to achieving decarbonisation goals, especially for hard-to-abate sectors, such as shipping. Carbon Clean’s proprietary solvent and modular point-source technology are at the forefront of demonstrating the vital role of carbon capture in contributing to the commercialisation and at-scale deployment of eFuels.”

In 2023 LiquidWind announced a number of partnerships aimed at scaling the production of eFuels, with the companies involved in the establishment of the DPC, as well as Uniper.
