Description

HIF USA will produce a carbon-neutral gasoline substitute that can be dropped into vehicles in use today without any modification to existing engines or the infrastructure on which they depend.

The carbon-neutral gasoline is produced from CO2 captured from the atmosphere and green hydrogen from renewable wind power. HIF USA expects to produce approximately 200 million gallons per year of carbon-neutral gasoline substitute by 2025, with the potential to decarbonize over 400,000 vehicles.

In December 2022, HIF selected Siemens to provide electrolyzers and Topsoe to provide engineering and design for the methanol and methanol-to-gasoline processes, which will combine the green hydrogen with 2 million tons of CO2 captured from the atmosphere to produce approximately 1.4 million tons of methanol and then synthesize the methanol into 200 million gallons (750 million liters) per year of carbon-neutral gasoline.
