Porsche to build the first fossil fuel-neutral plant in Chile

The Chilean company involved in the project, HIF (Highly Innovative Fuels), has already obtained the necessary environmental permits and Siemens Energy has started preliminary work for the next major commercial phase.

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Porsche and Siemens Energy have joined forces with several international companies to build an industrial plant in Punta Arenas, Chile, dedicated to virtually producing virtually CO2-neutral fuel (e-fuel).

The Haru Oni project uses perfect wind conditions in the Magallanes province in southern Chile to produce synthetic fuel using low-cost renewable wind energy. In the first stage, water is split into oxygen and hydrogen by electrolysis using wind power. The CO2 is then filtered out of the air and combined with the hydrogen to produce synthetic methanol, which in turn is converted into e . . .
