ANNAPOLIS, MD, June 15, 2022 — Carbon Sink LLC (Carbon Sink) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Cube Zero Carbon Fund Sàrl (CZCF), an affiliate of Cube Infrastructure Managers. The purpose of the MOU is to facilitate financing for the development, construction, ownership, and operation of as many as three commercial facilities for the production and sale of eMethanol.
“We are pleased to enter this agreement with Cube,” said Steve Meyer, CEO of Carbon Sink. “They have an impressive history of financing successful projects that are helping to expedite the clean energy transition. Carbon Sink’s eMethanol platform and ability to rapidly scale production aligns with the strategic vision of Cube and its many investors seeking both high-impact climate solutions and competitive returns.” eMethanol made with the Carbon Sink platform is molecularly identical to methanol produced from fossil fuels but utilizes captured carbon dioxide and green hydrogen as its feedstocks. When powered by renewable energy, the process results in carbon-neutral eMethanol.
eMethanol will be vital for the decarbonization of industries such as maritime shipping and materials production. eMethanol is also a cost-effective hydrogen carrier that can easily be transported to high-value markets then processed to unlock the hydrogen for use as a low-carbon fuel for vehicles, power production or industrial processes.
CZCF is an affiliate of Cube Infrastructure Managers (Cube IM), an independent Luxembourgian management company focusing on investments in the European and North American infrastructure space. CZCF has a dual objective which consists in contributing to reducing carbon emission in the atmosphere whilst delivering economic and social progress, and achieving an attractive return for Investors. The fund aims to invest with an environmentally- and socially-responsible investment approach, that is geared towards sustainable business values.
"Carbon Sink's eMethanol platform fits exactly with CZCF's objective to invest in platforms that have the ability to develop, build, operate and maintain greenfield energy transition infrastructure projects, with a build and grow strategy" said Hervé Touati, Managing Director of CZCF. "Synthetic fuels will play an important role to achieve the transition to a net zero economy, and eMethanol in particular. We are happy to work with the Carbon Sink's team who has already completed a substantial part of the work, and are looking forward to contributing to the next steps."
