Spanish renewables company Greenalia and German power-to-liquid (PtL) joint venture P2X-Europe GmbH & Co KG have signed an agreement to collaborate on a synthetic hydrocarbons project in the region of Galicia, northwest Spain, they said in an announcement on Monday.
The partners will work on the development of a facility that will produce raw material that will be processed into sustainable fuels, specifically e-fuels for the aviation industry, and used to produce high-value waxes for the chemical industry.

The project, named Breogan, will be located in the Curtis-Teixeiro industrial park in Galicia, where Greenalia operates a biomass-fired power plant. That power plant directly supply biogenic carbon dioxide for the Breogan facility, Greenalia and P2X-Europe said.
The proposed facility will also receive supplies of green hydrogen produced from unspecified wind and solar farms.
The partners expect Breogan to be capable of producing over 11,000 tonnes of green hydrogen per year in its initial phase. With the capture of biogenic CO2, it could produce around 20,000 tonnes of synthetic hydrocarbons ready to be refined, the companies said, without providing the timetable for the project.
P2X-Europe is the joint venture between German specialty chemicals company H&R GmbH & Co KgaA (ETR:2HRA) and fuels supplier and trader Mabanaft GmbH & Co KG.
