Arcadia eFuels' SAF plant to use Plug Power's electrolyser

Arcadia eFuels has selected Plug Power to provide a 280 MW proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyser system to Arcadia’s Vordingborg plant, Denmark, for the production of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).

Harnessing Denmark’s plentiful wind power, Arcadia eFuels Vordingborg site will utilise Plug’s electrolyser technology to produce approximately 120 tpd 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 RFNBO (Renewable Fuels of Non-Biological Origin) in preparation for the European Mandates on aviation fuel.

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

Arcadia eFuels has commenced a FEED study 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 decarbonise the hydrocarbon fuel sector,” noted Andy Marsh, CEO of Plug. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with Arcadia eFuels as they pursue plans for rapid growth and expansion.”

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