In a world grappling with climate challenges, the Power-to-X (PtX) industry is emerging as a beacon of hope, promising to transform our carbon woes into sustainable solutions. A key lynchpin in this transformation? Sustainable carbon sourcing.

Together with our dedicated team of experts, GFA is leading this transformation. In a comprehensive STUDY (PDF) conducted on behalf of GIZ / International PtX Hub Germany, we have gained the following insights:

  • Namibia is paving the way for a substantial green fuels industry. Its ambitious goal to produce 10-12 million tons of hydrogen equivalent per year by 2050 is of global significance.
  • The study extends beyond Namibia's borders and focuses on the global importance of sustainable carbon sourcing within the PtX industry.
  • Carbon sourcing methods such as Direct Air Capture (DAC), Biogenic Carbon, and Carbon Capture and Utilization (CCU) are critical not only for Namibia, but for advancing global decarbonization efforts. It helps to understand the implications of carbon carrier choices and evaluate the different methods in the Namibian context.
Namibia's remarkable biomass resources, particularly its innovative Biomass PtX (BtX) process, have global implications. This process enhances the role of biomass as a carbon carrier and provides a sustainable blueprint for PtX industries worldwide.

This study is a practical guide, not limited to Namibia, but applicable to PtX on a global scale. Our recommendations transcend borders, advocating for sustainable carbon sourcing that can spark a more sustainable future.
