INERATEC, the leading company for sustainable synthetic fuels, is planning a pilot project with Rheinmetall. The two companies have signed a joint memorandum of understanding to this end.

"We are driving the post-fossil age with our products – that is INERATEC's vision. This 
is only possible if we decarbonize all CO₂-emitting sectors. With the pilot project now planned, we are creating the basis for a CO₂-neutral alternative to the large quantities of fossil fuels that are consumed in the defense industry every day,"

says Philipp Engelkamp, Managing Director of INERATEC. The defense sector contributes a considerable share of global emissions: According to estimates, they account for 
around 5 percent worldwide.

The first stage of the pilot project between INERATEC and Rheinmetall involves an analysis phase. The aim of this is to clarify the extent to which INERATEC's modular Power-to-Liquid (PtL) systems and e-Fuels can be used to support the decarbonization goals of the industrial partner from the defense sector. In a second phase, the partners are aiming to build Power-to-Liquid plants. A prototype of such a modular PtL plant from INERATEC is also currently on display at Rheinmetall's stand at this year's Eurosatory 2024 (June 16 to 21, 2024) in Paris.

INERATEC is known for its sustainable and ready-to-use e-Fuels. These synthetic fuels, including Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), e-diesel and e-methanol, are derived from recycled CO₂ and renewable energy. They are CO₂-neutral and miscible with conventional fuels, which means that no adjustments to engines, logistics and infrastructure are required.

INERATEC is building what is currently the largest production plant for sustainable e-Fuel in Frankfurt am Main, making it a pioneering plant for the global use of Power-to-Liquid technology. The production plant in Industriepark Höchst, one of the largest research and production sites for the chemical and pharmaceutical industry in Europe, will produce up to 2,500 tons of sustainable e-fuel per year.
