According to Infinium, its catalyst is a critical component in the creation of electrofuels (eFuels), a new class of synthetic fuels that replaces carbon-intensive petroleum-based products.

Infinium, which has autonomous control of the eFuels production process from start to finish, said that its eFuels are made from renewable power-derived green hydrogen and captured carbon dioxide in a proprietary process, and the novel catalyst facilitates the chemical reaction in that process that ultimately results in liquid eFuels.

Robert Schuetzle, CEO at Infinium, said: “From the beginning, we have been developing projects based on our own proprietary technology which increases our efficiency and reduces our costs. Catalyst production at scale in our own facility is an important milestone in our journey to delivering commercial volumes of eFuels in 2023 and beyond.”

Infinium pointed out that its eSAF and eDiesel can be used in today’s planes, ships, and trucks as an immediate replacement for petroleum jet and diesel fuels without modifications to engines or distribution infrastructure, while Infinium eNaphtha can be used to produce gasoline fuel alternatives as well as replace petroleum-derived naphtha in chemical and industrial processes for the creation of goods like plastics and solvents.
