Launch of the world’s first pilot plant for the cost-efficient production of green methanol
The world’s first pilot plant for the cost-efficient production of green methanol was inaugurated today at the chemical park in Leuna as part of the “Leuna100” project by Federal Minister for transport, Dr Volker Wissing.
Wastewater treatment plant as the heart of green (renewable) fuel production
Pilot project tests the production of electricity-based e-fuels for the first time in Bottrop. The Federal Ministry of Transport is funding the project with around twelve million euros.
PtL technology platform: A glimpse into the future
With the Technology Platform Power-to-Liquid Fuels, TPP for short, the German Aerospace Center (DLR – Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt) is building a research and demonstration facility in Leuna, Saxony-Anhalt, that is unique in terms of both form and size – with funding support from the German Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport (BMDV).
BMDV funding guideline on developing renewable fuels garners huge interest – 100 million euros in funding already approved
Today at the ‘Renewable fuels’ conference of the Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport (BMDV), Oliver Luksic, Parliamentary State Secretary in the BMDV, presented seven funding subsidy notices as part of the ‘Development of renewable fuels funding guideline’.
First Renewable Energies conference from the Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport opens in Berlin
The Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport (BMDV) today brought together experts from industry, science and trade associations for the first Renewable Fuels conference.
New application procedure for development funding of renewable fuels begins
With a total of 640 million euros, the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI – Bundesministerium für Verkehr und digitale Infrastruktur) is funding the development of renewable fuels. The two-stage application procedure is now open.
BMVI launches funding call for development platform for power-to-liquid fuels
Project outlines for the establishment and operation of a development platform for electricity-based liquid fuels (power-to-liquid, PtL) with a production capacity of up to 10,000 tonnes of PtL fuel per year can be submitted as of immediately to the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI – Bundesministerium für Verkehr und digitale Infrastruktur).
Study commissioned on behalf of the BMVI: The conceptual and technical design of a development platform for PtL fuels
In order to achieve climate neutrality, the use of electricity-based fuels is essential for many areas of application. The aviation industry in particular will continue to rely on liquid fuels in the future. Yet the widespread industrial-scale production of electricity-based fuels (power-to-liquid, PtL) still poses a major challenge.
