ALIGN-CCUS project partners at RWE have produced synthetic fuel using carbon dioxide (CO2) captured from the flue gas of a coal-fired power station.

The breakthrough has been made at RWE’s Niederaussem Power Station in North Rhine-Westphalia using a demonstration synthesis unit, which powered up last November.
