The FLITE consortium will construct a 30,000 MTPY alcohol-to-jet (ATJ) facility in Europe with €20 million in grant funding from the EU Horizon 2020 program. This marks SkyNRG's second commercial project in less than two years, signifying the optimistic outlook for the sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) industry. While HEFA remains the only commercially produced SAF to date, LanzaTech continues to blaze the trail for ATJ, leading the ASTM approval for 50% blending in 2018. While the company still needs to demonstrate commercial production of SAF, SkyNRG will easily be able to secure off-take agreements from its extensive corporate and airline network for all volumes produced.
