Right now the Swedish Vitality Company introduced it will grant funds to KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Södra, Växjö Energi, SkyNRG, Rise Research Institutes of Sweden and 2030-sekretariatet to carry on their analysis on the progress of manufacturing of Sustainable Aviation Gas (SAF) in the Växjö location in Småland, Sweden. The funding will assist the consortium to carry on their review on an built-in Fischer-Tropsch SAF creation facility employing forestry residues. The envisioned facility has the opportunity to be an critical step ahead in making aviation a lot more sustainable. The Swedish Energy Agency awards the consortium with a grant of 5.1 million SEK (+/-EUR 500.000) to fund the venture.

This initially-of-its-variety Fischer-Tropsch SAF generation facility integrated with existing bio-primarily based electricity generation has the potential to make large high-quality sustainable fuels and reduce GHG emissions in the aviation sector. The realisation of the plant could provide as a proof of idea for a lot of potential vegetation. By 2026, the plant could be operational with a manufacturing quantity of 16 kilo tonnes SAF annually.

Dutch-Swedish consortium masking the entire benefit chain

The consortium, which signifies the entire benefit chain of the output, joins forces in purchase to improve the availability of SAF in Sweden and North Europe. To satisfy long term need associates will study all engineering, technical, company and sustainability angles of the undertaking. NGOs, the Swedish federal government, Södra, certification units, academics and SkyNRG’s Sustainability Board are remaining associated to established the appropriate sustainability framework for this venture. Sustainability variables viewed as in the study involve the carbon balance and the biodiversity of the forest as effectively as potential displacement consequences of utilising forestry residues for SAF creation.

SAF not extensively readily available

The latest era of aircraft engines demand liquid fuels. These plane are not able to switch to alternate electricity resources these types of as hydrogen or energy in the small time period, and neither can airport infrastructure. SAF, as a ‘drop-in fuel’ is the option to considerably decrease CO2 emissions in aviation in the short to medium phrase, with no modifications to infrastructure or products required. SAF is not commonly accessible nonetheless. It has the probable to cut down carbon emissions by 75 to just about 100 percent in its neat form, depending on the combination of know-how pathway and feedstock, and as very long as stringent sustainability requirements are achieved.

KLM Royal Dutch Airways: target on different technologies

Karel Bockstael, VP Sustainability at KLM, an bold and pioneering airline in generating the operation and the aviation sector much more sustainable: “To be in a position to develop into additional sustainable in the foreseeable future, KLM is focusing on scaling up creation and use of SAF. For far more SAF, we ought to aim on all systems facet by aspect and really encourage the preliminary upscaling of production facilities. The software we guidance in Sweden is an significant following action in the enhancement. Current technologies centered on made use of cooking oils will get to its limit because of to scarcity, and the improvement of sustainable artificial SAF has economic and technological troubles to prevail over. The engineering we will be deploying in Sweden is primarily based on Fischer-Tropsch synthesis, and generates jet fuel primarily based on forestry residues. There is a large amount of this residue available in Sweden and the rest of Europe, creating it a promising project.”

Södra: tiny-scale family forestry of 53,000 forest owners

&#13

Lotta Lyrå, President and CEO of Södra, an international forest sector group and the largest forest-operator affiliation in Sweden with a membership of 53,000 forest owners: “Södra is devoted to increase the use of every tree that arrives from our 53,000 member’s forests in Southern Sweden. Working with every component – like residues – is essential in our ambition to present the way to a fossil-free of charge modern society and contribute to the local climate changeover. Producing significant good quality Sustainable Aviation Gas from forest residues not suited for structures or other resources is a way of doing so and support de-carbonize aviation. With this consortium, we are operating through the full benefit chain to choose the up coming action in the direction of producing a new field of Sustainable Aviation Gasoline.”

Växjö, greenest Town in Europe

Erik Tellgren, CEO of Växjö Energi, company of merchandise and providers in the spots of electrical power, district heating and district cooling in Växjö Municipality, Sweden: “Växjö Energi gives effectively produced fossil cost-free district heating, district cooling and electrical power at the CHP plant Sandviksverket in Växjö Municipality, Sweden. Växjö, the Greenest City in Europe, has a solid will to proceed contributing to lessening local weather modify. We also believe in it is useful to lengthen our plant to also generate sustainable aviation gasoline from forest residues. This would be great and as a initial-of-a-kind job of very important relevance to the sustainable power transition required.”

SkyNRG, SAF frontrunner

Maarten van Dijk, Controlling Director of SkyNRG, pioneer in SAF with the industry’s most important devoted SAF workforce: “As a single of the international market leaders in Sustainable Aviation Gasoline we are active companions in a multitude of tasks, targeted on scaling distinct feedstock/technological know-how pathways. The opportunity to use forestry residues for higher price conclude-uses, like SAF, is there. But prior to getting a future move in scaling up, it is vital to make sure we recognize the sustainability and impacts of this new, integrated provide chain. We are thus quite grateful for the potent partnership and fiscal help from the Swedish govt to take a up coming massive move in knowledge the legitimate likely of this feedstock/know-how set up.”
