Australian-Israeli start-up Electriq~Global has teamed with Dutch company Eleqtec to bring its water-based fuel technology to the Netherlands.


Together they plan to introduce Electriq~Fuel recycling plants, and introduce e-mobility applications for trucks, barges and mobile generators with several demonstration and prototyping projects expected by 2020.


Zero-emission mobility


The “progressive” Dutch market is reportedly moving to adopt zero-emission mobility solutions and is looking for commercial and economical clean energy applications.


According to the partners, they are already in advanced commercialisation negotiations with leading Dutch companies.


“Electriq~Global is excited to bring our safe, zero-emission, recyclable fuel to the Dutch market. It is pleasing to see a nation determined to achieve sustainable and zero-emission economy,” said Guy Michrowski, CEO, Electriq~Global.


“With Eleqtec’s support, we expect first products based on our technology, made by Dutch partners, delivered in 2020.”


Comprised of three-fifths water, the start-up claims Electriq~Fuel is a game-changer in zero-emissions energy and is a cost-efficient alternative to batteries and compressed hydrogen.

“Electriq~Global’s technology is the link that the sustainable economy was missing"

When compared to green energy storage solutions like lithium-ion batteries or compressed hydrogen, Electriq~Global achieves a greater range at a lower cost. The energy density potential of the technology is up to 15 times that of electric batteries currently in use in electric vehicles, it claims.


“Electriq~Global’s technology is the link that the sustainable economy was missing and joining forces with Electriq in bringing it to fruition is highly motivating,” added Mecx Kooij, chairman, Eleqtec.


“Our solution solves issues with regards to storage and transport of energy, supports current initiatives and introduces a cost-efficient fuel. We’re well progressed in negotiations on the ground, so very soon you will see Electriq in action.”


Electriq~Global was founded in 2014 and is supported by the Israeli government’s Start-up Nation’s incubation programme. The start-up is funded by investors and is partnering to roll out its technology globally.


Eleqtec focuses its efforts on assembling a coalition of energy transition stakeholders that stand to benefit from and are interested to apply Electriq~Global’s technology.
