Arcadia eFuels taps Plug Power for 280 MW electrolyzer system



Arcadia eFuels has selected Plug Power Inc., a provider of turnkey hydrogen solutions for the global green-hydrogen economy, to provide a 280-megawatt (MW) proton-exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyzer system to Arcadia’s plant in Vordingborg, Denmark, for the production of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).





Arcadia eFuels CEO Amy Hebert and Plug CEO Andy Marsh held a ceremony commemorating the deal at Plug’s annual symposium recently.





Harnessing Denmark’s plentiful wind power, Arcadia eFuels’ Vordingborg site will utilize Plug’s electrolyzer technology to produce approximately 120 tons per day 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 SAF that meets the requirements of renewable fuels of nonbiological origin (RFNBO) in preparation for the European mandates on aviation fuel.





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





Arcadia eFuels has commenced a front-end engineering and design (FEED) study, awarded to Technip Energies in February, 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.





“This contract with Arcadia eFuels establishes us as the preferred provider for green-hydrogen solutions that decarbonize the hydrocarbon-fuel sector,” said Andy Marsh, CEO of Plug. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with Arcadia eFuels as they pursue plans for rapid growth and expansion.”





Amy Hebert, CEO of Arcadia eFuels, added, “The global demand for eFuels continues to grow, and in order to meet these demands, we must build production plants at commercial scale. Our partnership with Plug is crucial to ensuring that our commercial facilities will be able produce clean, green, decarbonized fuel for the aviation and logistics verticals.”





In May, Arcadia eFuels signed a single-license agreement with Sasol and Topsoe for which the two companies will deliver their proprietary technology (G2LTM), converting CO2 and hydrogen into eFuel for aviation.




The plant will produce approximately 26.4 million gallons per year of eFuels.
