Government authorities, refining companies, and the aviation industry are collectively exploring the different technology pathways to substitute fossil-based Jet fuel with SAF based on renewable sources (such as low carbon/renewable ethanol, agricultural residues, forestry residues, wood wastes etc…) or Carbon Capture technology.
Let's focus on Axens SAF offer.
As the transportation fuel and chemical markets require urgent shifts to meet future demands while lowering average carbon intensity of fuels and products, the use of renewable & alternative feedstocks will play an increasing role in the game tomorrow.
Axens is actively contributing to meet this future demand for Renewables & Alternatives products by providing technologies for producing high-quality middle distillates (jet fuel and diesel) and gasoline.
As the transportation fuel and chemical markets require urgent shifts to meet future demands while lowering average carbon intensity of fuels and products, the use of renewable & alternative feedstocks will play an important role in the game tomorrow.
Today, the main substitute to gasoline is first generation bio-ethanol produced from food crops (sugar beet, sugar cane or starchy crops such as corn, wheat...) via fermentation process.
The chemical industry needs to address challenges related to circular economy and society growing demand for more sustainable products and lower industrial carbon footprint.
Bio-based chemicals open the door to green value chains for chemicals and polymers with high attractiveness that can certainly help overcome these challenges. In this realm, Axens provides technologies to convert renewable alcohols into olefins, which are a key compound for the chemical industry.
