Solar fuels are synthetic fuels produced from solar energy. They are climate-friendly, renewable, and affordable. A cutting-edge technology that offers a truly sustainable alternative to fossil fuels. Synhelion is on a mission to replace fossil fuels by economically viable synthetic fuels. The solution uses high-temperature solar heat to convert water and CO2 into synthetic fuels; so-called solar fuels. These fuels are compatible with the current global fuel infrastructure and reduce net CO2 emissions by up to 100%. The technology combines state-of-the-art solar tower systems with proprietary high-temperature thermochemical processes for the production of solar fuels.
