The Route to the
Fuel of the Future

The technology developed by CAPHENIA paves the way to a new generation of synthetic fuels.

Our mission: to produce carbon-neutral synthetic fuels – from carbon dioxide, renewable energy, and biogas. This will enable us to pave the way to an age of emission-free fuels.

Life is motion ... movement ... travel. Without mobility, our globalized world is totally inconceivable. International relations and prosperity are built on mobility and interconnectedness. Everyone who wants to be mobile should therefore have the opportunity to be so in the future. And at an economically affordable price, in every sense of the phrase. Today, however, the price of mobility is very high when it comes to the environment. 

Airplanes, ships, and road vehicles emit huge quantities of carbon dioxide. This threatens the climate and our environment. We’re paying for this not only monetarily, but also with our health – and all future generations will do so, too. This has to change! And that’s why we want to bring about a change. 

It is our declared goal to lower carbon emissions from fuels and to minimize the costs involved. We want to harness CO2 and, combined with biogas, convert it into fuels. We can react flexibly to the availability of renewable energies. 

Using our patented technology, we produce carbon-neutral synthetic fuels that can be used to power engines already available and in service. No need for complex conversion work, no need for new infrastructure. 

What’s the price tag? Low.

Nobody produces carbon-neutral fuels as cheaply as we do. The age of mobility based on new, green technology is dawning right now. Because purely fossil-based fuels will soon be a thing of the past. The future belongs to carbon-neutral fuels. And we’re paving the way with our technology. 

Together with our strong partners in industry and research, such as Lufthansa, MAN, ETH Zurich, TU Munich, and MINES ParisTech, we have developed the technology down to the last detail. We would now like to realize the first plant worldwide that will use our plasma process to recycle CO2 and utilize it as a fuel component. Assisting us with this project are experts from the Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR – German Aerospace Center) and the Forschungsstelle für Energiewirtschaft e.V.
