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.
Research ideas sought for the production of Power-To-Liquid (PtL) fuels
The German Aerospace Center (DLR – Deutsches Zentrum für Luft und Raumfahrt) is seeking research ideas for the production of power-to-liquid (PtL) fuels. Project consortia from science and industry are invited to submit their proposals.
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).
Federal funding for alternative shipping technologies saves emissions and environmental costs
Three federal government funding guidelines for climate-friendly maritime systems result in a measurable contribution to climate, environmental and health protection.
Electricity-based fuels: The DLR selects Leuna as location for PtL technology platform
Research and development of technologies for the production of power-based fuels on an industrial scale will be pursued at the Leuna research facility in the German state of Saxony-Anhalt. The Leuna Chemical Park (Chemiepark Leuna) was selected as the winning site in a multi-stage selection process. Electricity-based fuels are an important pillar for making mobility more climate and environmentally friendly, especially for aviation and shipping.
