About Haru Oni

We use state-of-the-art technology to harness the power of the winds in Magallanes to produce a low carbon eFuel.

Haru Oni is the first operating eFuels facility in the world. The plant uses renewable energy from the wind and a process called electrolysis to produce green hydrogen. The project captures CO2 from a biogenic source and use a process of synthesis to combine the CO2 and hydrogen to produce eFuels, including synthetic green gasoline (eGasoline) and synthetic green Liquefied Gas (eLG). The eFuel will create a way for existing infrastructure to become low carbon by continuously reusing and recycling the CO2.

With the help of the wind. A wind as constant and unique as the one that blows in southern Chile. The wind will provide us with energy... the clean energy we need to make this happen.
