Cyclize, a spin-off from the University of Stuttgart, has developed a technology to defossilize the chemical industry using mixed plastic waste and CO2 as raw materials to produce synthesis gas (a gas mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen). This synthesis gas is a fundamental building block for advanced chemicals and is used in making plastics, methanol, hydrogen, and e-fuels. Until now, synthesis gas has been obtained through the linear use of fossil resources such as natural gas. The innovative plasma-based process replaces fossil resources with waste materials, enabling a circular carbon economy and avoiding hundreds of megatons of CO2 annually by 2050.

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.

refuel.green is one of the world's most innovative start-ups in the field of e-fuels. Founded in Dresden in 2021, the team of ca. 10 engineers and entrepreneurs is committed to making a decisive contribution to a CO2-neutral global economy. Specifically, the innovative, plasmacatalysis-based "NextGen-PtX Reactor Unit" is being developed, built and marketed. In line with its holistic value proposition, the refuel.green GmbH also supports its customers with consulting on the technically and economically optimal integration of the units into existing production plants or into new projects. Thanks to this overall offer, refineries, for example, can convert their business operations, which are currently dependent on fossil crude oil, to the production of CO2-neutral, renewable e-fuels in a particularly competitive manner.
