HIF Global has partnered with Porsche and Volkswagen to develop a groundbreaking CO2 recycling technology that will revolutionize the automotive industry. The companies have announced their plans to develop and install a Direct Air Capture (DAC) unit at the HIF Haru Oni Demonstration facility in southern Chile.
This DAC unit is being hailed as the future of CO2 recycling and will be the first of its kind to be tested at a fully integrated efuels plant. The mechanism used in this unit will have the capability to capture carbon dioxide directly from the air and convert it into synthetic fuels.
The technology involves producing efuels by combining green hydrogen and recycled CO2, resulting in emethanol, which can then be converted into egasoline, eSAF, or other synthetic fuels. The Haru Oni facility, which is currently in operation, utilizes biogenic CO2 and hydrogen generated from the strong winds of the Magallanes region.
HIF Global, Porsche, and Volkswagen have created a DAC (Direct Air Capture) prototype for this location that can filter carbon dioxide directly from the atmosphere. This supplementary solution has the ability to filter up to 600 tons of carbon dioxide per year directly from the air.
The President and CEO of HIF Global, Cesar Norton, expressed his excitement about the collaboration, stating that they are not waiting for solutions to come to them but are instead creating them and leading the way in the industry.
By joining forces and sharing expertise, these companies are determined to revolutionize the automotive sector and pave the way for a greener tomorrow. The groundbreaking CO2 recycling technology from HIF Global and its partners will undoubtedly have a profound impact on reducing carbon emissions, preserving the environment, and transforming the way vehicles are manufactured and operated.
