  • Overcoming the Barriers of Development & Growth
  • Advances in E-Fuels as a Positive Disruptor in the Automotive and Trucking Transportation Sector
  • Updates on Policy & Regulations Framing the European Industry
  • Exploring the Commercialized and Small Scale Technologies Currently on the Market
  • The Need for Sustainable Electricity Logistics in the Creation of E-Fuels
  • The Importance of CO2 Sourcing and Usage in the Production Process
  • The Role of E-Fuels in the Future of Aviation

During the Tuesday afternoon prior to the conference, on the 2nd of November, a limited number of conference delegates will receive the unique opportunity to visit the KIWI AG e-gas Plant in Werlte, Germany.

This plant produces synthetic methane from water and CO2. The amount of CO2 emitted by the car is precisely the amount bound during the production of the fuel. Audi uses biomethane from residual materials such as straw and green waste, in addition to the quantities of synthetic methane, to ensure Audi e-gas can be supplied comprehensively.

There is no extra charge to join a site visit, although places are limited and allocated to conference delegates on a first come first served basis. Therefore we should strongly suggest to book your place early to avoid disappointment.

Johnson Matthey (JM) is a global leader in sustainable technologies applying cutting-edge science and scientific expertise to enable cleaner air, improved health and more efficient use of our planet’s natural resources.  Johnson Matthey creates value-based solutions for our customers while making a real difference to the world around us.

The world is calling out for sustainable manufacturing and new ways to produce the chemicals and fuels we need. Our expertise in the generation, purification and chemical modification of syngas opens the door to renewable feedstocks, efficient manufacturing, and low carbon technologies.

JM technology is used to turn gasified feedstocks, syngas, into a wide range of useful materials such as ammonia, methanol, methane and waxes.  This syngas traditionally comes from coal or natural gas, but now things like municipal solid waste or renewable biomass can be used to make syngas.

Through our collaboration with bp, we introduced a process based on Fischer Tropsch (FT) technology to economically convert synthesis gas generated from such biomass feedstocks into waxes suitable to produce sustainable diesel and aviation fuel.

Its modular design enables low risk scale-up and simple operation, while the catalyst gives high productivity and selectivity. The unique design of stacked catalyst carriers cleverly manages heat transfer and pressure drop. Compared with conventional fixed bed tubular reactors, the new system reduces capital expenditure by around 50% and enables the FT process to be economically scaled down to a size suitable for waste and / or biomass gasification. When combined with our reverse water gas shift technology it enables fuels to be produced from carbon dioxide and hydrogen providing a route to e-fuels.





Haldor Topsoe is a global leader in supply of catalysts, technology, and services to the chemical and refining industries. Topsoe aims to be the global leader within carbon emission reduction technologies by 2024. By perfecting chemistry for a better world, we enable our customers to succeed in the transition towards renewable energy. Topsoe is headquartered in Denmark and serves customers around the globe. In 2020, our revenue was approximately DKK 6.2 billion, and we employ around 2,100 employees.





Norsk e-Fuel is a project consortium, developing Power-to-Liquid projects on industrial scale in Norway.

The company’s vision is to achieve climate neutral transportation by converting CO2 and water using 100 % Norwegian renewable electricity in order to substitute fossil crude oil through renewable fuel.

Registered in Oslo, Norway, the consortium combines the technological force and industrial strength of four partners. Powered by Sunfire’s and Climeworks’ proprietary technology based on worldwide patents the company strive to make transportation renewable: Norsk e-Fuel brings together Sunfire’s most efficient and economic electroylsers and Climeworks’ state-of-the-art Direct Air Capture technology. Paul Wurth (SMS group), one of the world leading EPC partners will provide the necessary know-how to make industrialisation possible. Combined with their corporate strength and with Valinor’s local competence and expertise for the Norwegian energy market Norsk e-Fuel will make the goal of climate neutral transportation a reality. Norsk e-Fuel’s first plant will go into operation within the next three years. After the initial plant, the production capacity will be upscaled to 100 million liters annually. The plant layout of the then full sized plant will serve as blueprint for a following nationwide roll-out leading the way to make renewable transportation possible.

eFuel-Today is all about E-Fuels and talks directly to consumers about the positive impact by fossil-free and sustainable fuels in reducing CO2 emissions. The consumer-focused storytelling approach is what makes EFTD stand out. The initiative eFuel-Today was founded by the MEW and its members in January 2021. It quickly became the world’s leading communication platform for E-Fuels with over 2 million users reached so far. Frequently published videos and a high roll-out of editorial articles make eFuel-Today a fast moving, one of its kind storytelling machine. We truly believe that when customers have access to reliable, well curated and highly entertaining content about climate-neutral E-Fuels, the pressure on politics and regulations increases so that we have a fair chance to reach our climate goals.

The eFuel Alliance is a stakeholder initiative committed to promoting the political and social acceptance of eFuels and to securing their regulatory approval. We represent more than 110 companies along the value chain of eFuel production. We stand for fair competition and a level-playing field for all relevant emission reduction solutions. We are clearly committed to more  climate protection and aim to win broader recognition of the significant contribution eFuels can make in the drive for sustainability and climate protection. Our goal is to facilitate the industrial production and widespread use of carbon neutral fuels made from renewable energy sources.

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

At the event we strive not only to bring you to the same location at the same time as your customers/suppliers/peers, we strive to ensure you meet face-to-face with each and every one of your target contacts and to provide you with the time you need to have multiple unhurried conversations with them and build a lasting business relationship:

• A pre-event informal introduction the evening before the conference
• A minimum of five hours’ networking built into the two day conference agenda
• A networking grid which enables you to make your target contacts aware you are looking for them
• The option to join either social drinks or dinner during the evening of Day One
• ACI’s on-site team will assist you in locating your hard-to-find target contacts & make face-to-face introductions

Of course, if there is anybody you are unable to meet over the two days, ACI’s event team will do their best to initiate contact after the event.


ACI is doing everything to ensure that all its events go ahead as advertised, returning to the much-missed and valuable face-to-face interaction as soon as possible.  In order to ensure the events are delivered as safely as possible, venues are chosen and procedures are adjusted in line with the relevant local and regulations and guidelines.

These have been exceptionally challenging times with very fast-moving updates. As we get closer to an event we look at each one individually, paying careful heed to local regulations, but without ignoring the international situation. Whatever happens, ACI will safeguard the investments that attendees have made by either automatically moving it to the new dates of the event or a full credit will be provided for use when booking a future ACI event.
