Creating a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels. Converting carbon emissions to carbon-neutral fuels and reducing fossil fuel consumption.
Carbon emissions should be reduced in all sectors, such as heavy industries and transportation. It is reported that most global emissions are accounted from industries and transportation. E-fuels is one of the most feasible carbon-neutral solution.
E-fuels are produced from renewable energy sources, CO2 capture and green hydrogen. These e-fuels production plants do not release additional CO2.
Principle of e-fuels
Benefits of e-fuels
They are environmentally and
- They are climate neutral; no additional greenhouse gases are produce while they are in use.
- They emit significantly less nitrogen oxide and particulate matter than conventional fuels.
- They can be easily stored and transported over long distances without any energy loss.
They are versatile and quick to deploy
- They are compatible with conventional internal combustion engines and efficient condensing boilers.
- They can easily be added to conventional fuels.
- There is no reasonable technological alternative to using e-fuels in aviation, shipping, construction, agriculture, forestry and large segments of heavy goods traffic.
They are user-friendly and convenient
- There is no need for an expensive change of technologies in the transport and heating sector.
- They can be comprehensively distributed via existing infrastructure and are thus easily available to consumers.
- They combine all the advantages of conventional liquid energy sources: a short refuelling process as well as high energy density
- As studies by renowned research institutes prove, eFuels can be produced in the medium-term for approximately 1 euro per litre.
They help to secure Europe’s primacy as an industrial location and strengthen international energy cooperation
- Both the EU and several states around the world have already committed themselves to using hydrogen and hydrogen-based derivative products within their hydrogen strategies in order to make parts of the economy and transport system climate-neutral.

Conventional carbon capture systems are large complex chemical plants, and requiring a long lead time to build. They are practical for very large emitters such as refineries and cement plants with large emissions.
Ionada is the first to market with a patented membrane contactor carbon capture system for small to mid-size carbon emitters, carbon emitters less than 200,000 tons per year. Ionada’s carbon capture technology provides a compact and affordable solution to achieve net zero carbon emissions.
