The message from Circlia Nordic’s CEO, Ib Johannsen, was quite clear when he spoke in front of about 200 people about the company’s thoughts and solutions at the Power-To-X conference at Aarhus University.
“Our technology provides 10 times more sustainable fuel than the traditional Power-To-X. Our method uses far less energy. There is a need to use oil for e.g. air transport, ships and the manufacture of materials, and with Circlia Nordic’s technology it can be done better and smarter, and with a much lower CO2 emission,” said Ib Johannsen.
Among him were colleagues from the industry gathered from 12 nations including Germany, Canada, Japan and the United States, among others. They are all specialists in Power-To-X technology.
One size fits all
With Circlia Nordic’s plant, it is possible to build exactly the size of the plant needed for each location, as the technology works in such a way that if there is a need for more than standard size, you can simply add more as a form of building blocks. In addition, Circlia Nordic also stands out in that the plants can be moved out centrally where the waste resource is produced.
Ib Johannsen was brought up in the chemical world that the bigger a plant is, the better.
“That mindset just isn’t that obvious for this technology. We have designed the plant so that you have a plant of the size that suits many local needs, and if there is a need for greater capacity, we just deliver more plants to the same location,” he said.
In addition to being on stage giving presentations, he was also part of a panel afterwards, where he participated in a discussion with Ralph-Uwe Dietrich, Doris Hafenbradl and Alex Miles.
“It’s been great to spar with colleagues. It is important for Circlia Nordic that we position ourselves as a strong and attractive alternative to the ‘classic’ Power-To-X technology,” said Ib Johannsen.
