A group of Danish companies have teamed up to build the world’s largest hydrogen and synthetic fuel production facilities in an ambitious effort to decarbonize the country’s transport sector. By manufacturing sustainable alternatives to fossil fuels, such as petrol and diesel, the country will not only significantly bring down costs, but it will also meet climate targets.
The climate-improving trailblazers include many of Denmark’s top leaders in transport and logistics, including Copenhagen Airports, A.P. Moller – Maersk, DSV Panalpina, DFDS, SAS and Ørsted. The green initiative will generate hydrogen, an emissions-free alternative fuel, using electrolysis (a process that splits water into hydrogen and oxygen) powered by renewable energy, as well as synthetic fuels.

The facility, which is projected for completion in 2030, would have capacity to deliver 250,000 tons of synthetic fuel each year to power buses, trucks, maritime vessels and aircraft. This would reduce annual carbon emissions by 850,000 tons.
