SOLETAIR is the world’s first pilot plant capable of
producing hydrocarbons from the air by using solar
power as the energy source.
The products can replace fossil resources in fuels,
chemicals, materials and even medicine. The solution
makes it possible to reach a carbon neutral future.
The raw materials, carbon dioxide and water, are
separated from the air. Hydrogen is generated from
water by means of electrolysis. Energy consumed in
the electrolysis is supplied by a solar power plant.
Finally, CO2 and hydrogen are combined to form
hydrocarbons in a synthesis reactor operating at high
pressure and temperature.
