SkyNRG will build a 100,000 metric ton per year biojet fuel facility (approximately 30 million gallons per year [MGY]) in Delfzijl, Netherlands, in 2022. The project will use Haldor Topsoe's hydrotreating technology to convert waste oil feedstock into hydroprocessed ester and fatty acid (HEFA) jet fuel, for which KLM has signed a 10-year off-take agreement for 75,000 metric tons (23 MGY) of biojet fuel per year. There are no major red flags with this project; Haldor Topsoe's technology is validated at scale, and HEFA is the most widely used biojet fuel in airplanes. The project is important, as it will bring a significant amount of biojet fuel onto the European market, which is needed to kick-start adoption of the fuel across the continent.
