For the first time, synthetic fuels have been successfully produced using solar power and carbon dioxide captured from the atmosphere. Soletair’s compact chemical plant is located in Finland.

In this mobile chemical pilot plant, 200 litres of synthetic fuel have already been extracted from solar power and carbon dioxide captured from the air. The mobile system, which fits into a shipping container, can produce around 80 litres of petrol per day.

The system works according to the Fischer-Tropsch process and consists of three components: a filter plant to capture carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, an electrolysis unit that produces the necessary hydrogen using solar power, and a reactor where carbon dioxide and hydrogen are converted into reactive synthesis gas at high temperature and transformed into liquid fuels, such as petrol, diesel or paraffin.
