Infinium, Amogy to accelerate eFuel adoption

Jan. 26, 2024
New collaboration seeks to advance decarbonization in heavy-duty industries by using green ammonia in the production of cleaner alternative fuels

Infinium, a provider of eFuels, and Amogy, which develops “carbon-free” power solutions, recently agreed to explore opportunities to integrate their technologies and pioneer commercial applications across the eFuels and green ammonia value chain.

The companies report they also are exploring collaborations with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) and SK Innovation for the deployment of their solution.

“Ingenuity and collaboration are critical to creating decarbonization solutions today,” Infinium CEO Robert Schuetzle said in a news release. “Our partnership with Amogy will go a long way toward helping advance our ability to rapidly scale the production of ultra-low carbon Infinium eFuels, including eSAF, eDiesel, and eNaphtha.”

To help accelerate decarbonization in heavy-duty transportation, the companies plan to jointly study and identify suitable applications for their alternative fuels. A key focus will be on integrating Amogy’s ammonia-cracking technology to provide low-cost, accessible green hydrogen as an input to produce Infinium’s “electrofuels.”

Upon identifying promising applications, Infinium and Amogy will initiate strategic pilot programs, showcasing “tangible and scalable implementations” of their clean technology solutions, the companies said. The partnership also entails the evaluation of additional opportunities for collaboration within the eFuels and ammonia spaces, with a focus on the development of commercial use cases.

“We are thrilled to forge this alliance with Infinium. By uniting our expertise and resources, we aim to unlock innovative opportunities that will pave the way for sustainable solutions,” Amogy CEO Seonghoon said. “This partnership reflects a shared commitment to accelerating technologies that can contribute to the reduction of carbon emissions in the heavy industry sectors.”

MHI invested in both companies and is exploring potential collaboration for new solutions and applications in energy-sector project development.

“Decarbonizing heavy industries requires numerous approaches that can concurrently and collaboratively help mitigate greenhouse gas emissions,” said Ricky Sakai, senior vice president of new business development at MHI of America. “We are excited to see how Amogy’s emission-free, energy-dense ammonia solution and Infinium’s proprietary eFuels production process might be aligned to overcome challenges and accelerate the global availability of commercial decarbonization solutions.”
