Arcadia eFuels selects Plug Power for 280 MW PEM electrolyzer system for SAF production at Vordingborg

Arcadia eFuels has selected Plug Power to provide a 280 MW proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyzer system to Arcadia’s Vordingborg plant for the production of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). Harnessing Denmark’s plentiful wind power, Arcadia eFuels Vordingborg site will utilize Plug’s electrolyzer technology to produce approximately 120 tons per day (TPD) of green hydrogen.

The green hydrogen will then be combined with biogenic CO2 to produce syngas. Further processing of the syngas will generate carbon-neutral sustainable aviation fuel that meets the requirements of RFNBO (Renewable Fuels of Non-Biological Origin) in preparation for the European Mandates on aviation fuel.

In May, Arcadia eFuels selected Sasol and Topsoe technologies for Vordingborg. The technology support for Arcadia marked the first single-point license between Topsoe and Sasol, whereby the two companies will deliver their proprietary technology (G2L), converting CO2 and H2 into eFuel for aviation. (Earlier post.)

Demand for sustainable aviation fuel is driven by European Commission requirements to supply 70% of fuel consumption at EU (European Union) airports by 2050 with the first mandates starting in 2025.

Arcadia eFuels has commenced a Front-End Engineering and Design (FEED) study to support a Final Investment Decision (FID) and move the project to execution phase, expected by mid-2024. Arcadia eFuels projects a commercial operation date towards the end of 2026.
