SMA Mineral partners with Infinium to advance eFuels project in Norway

Infinium has reached an agreement with SMA Mineral (SMA) that will advance the development of Infinium’s eFuels project at the Mo Industripark in Mo i Rana, Norway. (Earlier post.) The Infinium facility will utilize the carbon dioxide that SMA will produce at its Zero Emission Quick Lime (ZEQL) manufacturing facility in the industrial park as a feedstock for the production of eFuels.

Infinium uses waste CO2 and renewable power to produce eFuels products including its sustainable aviation fuel, Infinium eSAF. Infinium eFuels can be used in existing engines and traditional infrastructure with no modifications, providing a market-ready alternative to petroleum-based products. The use of eFuels aids in the decarbonization of heavy industries by reducing greenhouse gas emissions through a circular approach to CO2 utilization.

SMA’s ZEQL process electrifies lime burning using renewable power and extracts a pure stream of CO2 and therefore does not require an additional carbon capture unit. This new process has a higher degree of stone usage, extending the lifespan of lime resources in a quarry and producing CO2-neutral lime that can help to decarbonize the steel industry.

Infinium operates a commercial-scale eFuels facility in Corpus Christi, Texas and has more than a dozen global projects in development worldwide.
