“Power-to-Liquid: pilot operation of first compact plant”


German Karlsruhe Institute of Technology's (KIT) spin-off company INERATEC has developed a compact power-to-liquid plant’s chemical reactor that converts hydrogen produced from solar power together with carbon dioxide into liquid fuels, writes KIT in a press release. The Finnish SOLETAIR pilot plant, tested over the summer, fits into a ship container and produces gasoline, diesel, and kerosene from regenerative hydrogen and carbon dioxide.
