The innovative flexJET project uses a diverse range of organic waste feedstocks for sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production. The process offers better economics and improved overall sustainability by processing waste feedstocks near the source and at a scale that matches waste availability.
This is the first technology ever to use green hydrogen from waste feedstock for refining thereby maximising greenhouse gas savings. This project provides clear technical and economic validation, by building a demonstration plant at pre-commercial scale to deliver high quality SAF.
The flexJET project delivers a blueprint for the production and distribution of this novel SAF technology. This will be a showcase which facilitates towards the delivery of medium to long-term carbon reduction targets which have been set for the aviation industry in Europe and beyond.
