In a significant move towards advancing decarbonization efforts, eFuels provider Infinium and Amogy, a developer specializing in carbon-free, energy-dense power solutions, have formalized a memorandum of understanding (MOU). This collaboration aims to explore opportunities for integrating their respective technologies and developing commercial applications within the eFuels and green ammonia value chain. As part of their joint efforts, Infinium and Amogy are also considering collaborations with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) Group and SK Innovation to deploy their integrated solution.

The primary objective of this partnership is to expedite the decarbonization of heavy industry sectors. Infinium and Amogy will collaborate to study and identify suitable applications for deploying their eFuels and green ammonia solutions. A central focus of this collaboration involves exploring the potential integration of Amogy’s innovative ammonia-cracking technology. This integration aims to provide a low-cost, accessible source of green hydrogen feedstock, which would serve as an input for producing Infinium’s eFuels.

Infinium eFuels, also known as electrofuels or Power-to-X, are crafted using green hydrogen and waste carbon dioxide (CO2) in a proprietary process. Amogy's revolutionary ammonia-cracking technology employs state-of-the-art catalyst materials to crack ammonia into hydrogen and nitrogen at lower reaction temperatures, boasting high durability. This innovative approach reduces heating and maintenance requirements.

Once promising applications are identified, Infinium and Amogy plan to initiate strategic pilot programs. These programs will serve as tangible and scalable demonstrations of their clean technology solutions. The collaboration also involves evaluating additional opportunities for cooperation within the eFuels and ammonia sectors, with a specific focus on developing commercial use cases.

The critical importance of ingenuity and collaboration in creating effective decarbonization solutions is emphasized by the leadership of both companies. The partnership between Infinium and Amogy is envisioned to significantly contribute to the rapid scaling of ultra-low carbon Infinium eFuels, including eSAF, eDiesel, and eNaphtha.

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) has demonstrated its commitment to these initiatives by investing in both Infinium and Amogy. The company is actively exploring potential collaborations to develop new solutions and applications within the energy sector project development space.

Recognizing the multifaceted challenges associated with decarbonizing heavy industries, Infinium and Amogy believe that their collaborative efforts can provide concurrent and collaborative solutions to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. The alignment of Amogy's energy-dense ammonia solution with Infinium's proprietary eFuels production process is expected to overcome challenges and expedite the global availability of commercial decarbonization solutions.

Further supporting this collaborative effort is SK Trading International (SKTI), which invests in solutions contributing to addressing climate change and environmental pollution. SKTI is an investor in Infinium, while its parent company, SK Innovation, has also invested in Amogy. This collective support from industry players underscores the significance of these collaborations in advancing sustainable and eco-friendly energy solutions.
