Chemical Engineering – The First Commercial Power-to-Liquids Plant Planned

Nordic Blue Crude A/S (NBC; Porsgrunn, Norway; www.nordicbluecrude.no) intends to build the first power-to-liquids (PtL) plant in the Norwegian industrial park of Heroya, located 140 km southeast of Oslo. Although the date for the startup has not yet been released, the plant will produce 8,000 ton/yr of “e-crude” from CO2, water, and 20 MW of hydroelectric power. The crude oil will then be refined into “e-waxes and e-fuels.”
