eFuel Design & Performance Centre

Liquid Wind, together with international decarbonisation leaders and partners Alfa Laval, Carbon Clean, Siemens Energy and Topsoe, announce the eFuel Design & Performance Centre (DPC) in Hørsholm, Denmark. Recently launched the DPC will drive technological progress, strengthen production capacity and bring in-demand eFuels to market at scale.

The shared eFuel DPC is the first of its kind, with a joint research and development (R&D) department, where all five partners will collaborate and innovate to accelerate facility deployment. It will be instrumental in developing and refining the technical expertise required to build eMethanol plants in a manner that is rapid, efficient and cost- effective, so they can be deployed at scale globally. By leveraging partners’ innovative technologies and modular solutions, the DPC will deliver ready-to-build eMethanol plants that are quicker to fabricate, transport, construct and commission.

The DPC is a major milestone that will further accelerate the design and implementation of eFuel facilities capable of supplying a nominal 100,000 tonnes of eMethanol per year. Three projects are currently under development in the Nordics, including FlagshipONE, the world’s first commercial scale eMethanol facility, and
the goal is to develop up to ten additional plants by the end of 2027. The plants will significantly contribute to the global eMethanol market and future emissions reduction in hard-to-abate industries, such as global shipping.

Formed in 2020, the partnership is contributing to the fight against global warming by positioning itself as a key technology provider for the decarbonisation of hard-to-abate industries.
