Arcadia eFuels Taps Plug Power for 280 MW Electrolyzer System


LATHAM, N.Y., Oct. 11, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Arcadia eFuels has selected Plug Power Inc. (NASDAQ: PLUG), a comprehensive provider of turnkey hydrogen solutions for the global green hydrogen economy, to provide a 280 MW (megawatt) proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyzer system to Arcadia's Vordingborg plant for the production of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). Arcadia eFuels CEO Amy Hebert and Plug CEO Andy Marsh held a ceremony commemorating the deal at Plug's annual Symposium. 

Harnessing Denmark's plentiful wind power, Arcadia eFuels Vordingborg site will utilize Plug's electrolyzer technology to produce approximately 120 tons per day (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 sustainable aviation fuel that meets the requirements of RFNBO (Renewable Fuels of Non-Biological Origin) in preparation for the European Mandates on aviation fuel. 

Demand for sustainable aviation fuel is driven by European Commission requirements to supply 70 percent of fuel consumption at EU (European Union) airports by 2050 with the first mandates starting in 2025. 

Arcadia eFuels has commenced a Front-End Engineering and Design (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 decarbonize 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, decarbonized fuel for the aviation and logistics verticals."
