Renewable electricity and yet unused, undervalued gases (e.g. CO2) can be converted into sustainable products such as climate neutral gasoline, clean Diesel and e-kerosene, high-quality waxes, green methanol or renewable synthetic natural gas (altogether: e-products). INERATEC (IC) sells compact plants for these conversions or invests into e-product production sites.
IC´s technology solves several challenges of the energy transition: management of a fluctuating supply of renewable energy, large and long-term energy storage as well as sustainable mobility and climate neutrality. Synthetic fuels will especially be needed for heavy-duty and maritime transportation as well as aviation. E-products are a viable option for the defossilization of many industries currently depending on fossil resources.

Proxima Fusion

Fusion will be one of the greatest breakthroughs of this century. Proxima Fusion is working to develop power plants via optimized stellarators, devices that form magnetic cages for high-energy matter. Proxima is the first-ever spin-out company from the Max Planck Society Institute for Plasma Physics, which built and operates the most advanced stellarator on the planet, W7-X. Research over the past decade has now set the stage for Proxima to leverage modern optimization tools and design capabilities, and accelerate fusion. With W7-X reaching high-performance in continuous operation, uniquely among fusion concepts, Proxima Fusion is catalyzing the creation of a new fusion ecosystem in Europe. Connecting partners from industry and academia, the Proxima Fusion founding team, coming together from the Max Planck Society, MIT and Google, is now entering the race for fusion energy to turn stellarators into economically viable fusion power plants.
