Fuel Cells Works, Vertimass and Partners to Pilot Converting Green Hydrogen and CO2 Into SAF Through Danish Government Award
  • Renewable energy company is part of a consortium to get $1.35 million.

IRVINE, California. — Vertimass, with a mission to commercialize breakthrough sustainable fuels that reduce carbon emissions, announced today that a consortium it is partnering with has won approximately the bid $1.35 million to test the conversion of green hydrogen and carbon dioxide into sustainable aviation fuel. The funds were awarded by the Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Program (EUDP) in Denmark.

“The conversion of carbon dioxide — a major contributor to greenhouse gases — into jet fuel and other hydrocarbons can play a critical role in reducing the carbon footprint of transportation,” said Vertimass President and CEO, Dr. Karl Wyman. “We are honored to be part of this award and look forward to working with all organizations involved.”

The research project is a collaboration between a group of organizations including Kosan Gas, European Energy, Aalborg University, Port of Aalborg, Aalborg Airport, Hydrogen Valley and Vertimass. Each company will oversee a different step in this process and work together to turn carbon dioxide into jet fuel. Kosan Gas, the Nordic region’s leading gas supplier, will sell co-produced renewable LPG; Aalborg Airport will use the sustainable kerosene; European Energy, a leading developer of green energy solutions, will convert the carbon dioxide into methanol; and Vertimass will convert the methanol into kerosene.

The total budget, including partner contributions, is $2.5 million.
