HIF USA to produce eFuels and green hydrogen in Houston

Release - HIF


HIF is taking what it learns in Chile and applying it globally, starting with areas in the United States with high quality renewable energy resources.

Headquartered in Houston, HIF USA will begin on the Gulf Coast, where wind resources and CO2 are both abundant.

HIF USA will use renewable energy from the wind and a process called electrolysis to produce green hydrogen. The project will also capture CO2 and use a process of synthesis to combine the CO2 and Hydrogen to produce eFuels. The eFuel will create a way for existing infrastructure to become carbon neutral by continuously reusing and recycling the CO2.

The scheme known as Project Helix aims include:

  • Add 15 GW of renewable electricity to Texas capacity
  • Produce 900 million kilograms per year of Green Hydrogen
  • Capture CO2 of approximately 6 million tonnes per year
  • Produce 600 million gallons per year of eFuels
  • Convert 1 million vehicles to carbon neutral

According the the company website the project is currently looking to develop 3 trains of HIF fuel, negotiate PPAs, transport logistics and offtake agreements. Design and FEED engineering should be comcluded by the end of 2022. Financing of the project will start later this year with a Final Investment Decision to be taken by the end of Q2 2023. If successful the construction could begin straight after.

The construction of the 200 million gallon HIF fuel facility will take around 12 months and commercials operations are scheduled to begin in 2025
