Alcohol-to-Jet Fuel Production Plant Announced (Int'l. Report)
LanzaTech, SkyNRG,Fraunhofer
Date: 2021-02-03
The FLITE (Fuel via Low Carbon Integrated Technology from Ethanol) consortium, led by SkyNRG and LanzaTech as the technology provider, reports it will construct the first-of-its-kind LanzaJet™ Alcohol to Jet (AtJ) facility to convert waste-based ethanol to sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at a scale of over 30,000 tons/yr. The facility is expected to be fully operational in 20214. The project, which received €20 million in grant funding from the EU Horizon 2020 research and innovation program, is a major milestone on the path to a net-zero emission for the aviation industry, according to the release.

The FLITE consortium includes: SkyNRG, a global market leader for SAF solutions, is acting as the project coordinator and managing downstream supply chain development; carbon recycling company, LanzaTech, will be responsible for plant design, construction and operations using the LanzaJet™ AtJ technology; Fraunhofer, Europe's largest applied research organization, will oversee and distribute communications about the project; energy and sustainability strategy consultancy E4tech, will conduct the life cycle assessment; and the world's most trusted, valued and peer-reviewed standard for the bio-based economy, the Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB), will support the project through guidance on RSB certification of the facility.

Rolls-Royce Business Jets Going Green (Ind. Report)
Rolls Royce,World Energy
Date: 2021-02-03
Aircraft engine manufacturer Rolls-Royce is reporting completion of tests on a business jet engine fueled with 100 pct sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) which is claimed to dramatically reduce lifecycle fuel emissions compared to petroleum-derived jet fuel.

This latest test took place at Rolls-Royce's facility in Dahlewitz, Germany, near Berlin, and featured a Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 operating on a 100 pct SAF produced by low-carbon specialist World Energy in Paramount, California, sourced by Shell Aviation and delivered by SkyNRG.

According to Rolls-Royce, this un-blended fuel can reduce net CO2 lifecycle emissions by over 75 pct compared to conventional jet fuel.

KLM Secures Large Sustainable Aviation Fuel Uptake (Int'l Report)
KLM, SkyNRG
Date: 2019-05-29
Dutch air carrier KLM is reporting a 10-year agreement for the development and purchase of 75,000 tpy of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). The agreement is in keeping with KLM's sustainability ambitions and will reduce its CO2 emissions by 200,000 tpy.

KLM serves as one of the partners in a collaborative project -- called DSL-01 -- that will develop Europe's first dedicated SAF production plant which is expected to open in 2022 and produce 100,000 tpy of SAF and 15,000 tpy of bioLPG as a byproduct. Other partners in the project, which is expected to come in at roughly €260 million ($290 million), include Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, SkyNRG, and SHV Energy, a global LPG distribution company.

SAF delivers a CO2 reduction of at least 85 pct compared with fossil fuel and contributes to a significant decrease in ultra-fine particles and sulfur emissions.

SkyNRG Developing European Sustainable Jet Biofuel Plant (Int'l)
SkyNRG
Date: 2019-05-27
Further to our 10 Sept., 2018 report, Geneva, Switzerland-base aviation biofuel specialist SkyNRG is reporting it will develop Europe's first sustainable aviation fuel production plant in the Dutch province of Groningen. The new facility will use regionally sourced waste streams, such as used cooking oil to produce sustainable fuel and bio propane for KLM and SHV Energy respectively.

Starting in 2022, the facility will produce 100,000 tpy of sustainable fuel which translates into the aviation industry reducing its CO2 emissions with 270,000 tpy year. The aviation industry is currently responsible for more than 2 pct of the global CO2 emissions.

Compared with conventional jet fuel, SkyNRG's state of the art facility reduces life cycle CO2 emissions by at least 85 pct In addition, flights using sustainable aviation fuel create significantly less emissions of ultrafine particles and sulphur.

Global Bioenergies Consortium Isobutene Demo Funded (Int'l, Funding)
Global Bioenergies,SkyNRG,Neste
Date: 2018-05-14
Evry, France-based Global Bioenergies and an 11 member industrial consortium including Sekab, Neste Engineering Solutions, Repsol and SkyNRG are reporting receipt of EU funding to demonstrate the production of isobutene from softwood residue derivatives for use in gasoline and jetfuel. The 3-year, €19.7 million project received EU grant funding totaling €13.9 million, €5.7 million of which went to project coordinator Global Bioenergies

With an estimated forestry residues potential of about 145 million tpy, the European Union has the potential to support the deployment of hundreds of such biorefineries.

Global Bioenergies is one of the few companies worldwide, and the only one in Europe, that is developing a process to convert renewable resources into hydrocarbons through fermentation. The Company initially focused on the production of isobutene, one of the most important petrochemical building blocks that can be converted into fuels, plastics, organic glass and other applications, according to the company.
