Metafuels, European Energy plan eSAF facility in Denmark; methanol to SAF

Metafuels AG (earlier post), a Swiss aviation tech company, has signed an agreement with European Energy to set up a synthetic sustainable aviation fuel (eSAF) facility near Padborg in southern Denmark.

The new facility is set to be constructed adjacent to a future Power-to-X facility from European Energy. The facility will be able to produce approximately 12,000 liters (3,170 gallons) of eSAF daily.

This facility is a component of a broader effort to meet the aviation industry’s climate targets through the European Union’s RefuelEU Aviation initiative and the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA).

Metafuels’ scalable aerobrew technology converts sustainably produced methanol to jet fuel. The aerobrew process is based on an innovative catalytic system for converting green methanol to SAF with a high selectivity and yield.

It features high energetic efficiency and ultra-high conversion of carbon into jet fuel with up to 90% reduction of life cycle emissions compared to conventional jet fuel. As a drop-in fuel this technology does not require aircraft re-engineering or repurchasing and is compatible with existing fueling infrastructure.

European Energy is currently developing a Power-to-X facility in Padborg. The plan for the facility is that it will have more than three times the output of the current Power-to-X facility in Kassø constructed by European Energy.

Metafuels is focused on the development and deployment of proprietary sustainable fuel technologies, with an initial focus on synthetic aviation fuel. Founded in 2004, European Energy develops solar, wind farms, and Power-to-X solutions. With a presence in 28 countries and more than 700 employees, European Energy is constructing the world’s largest e-methanol facility in Kassø, Denmark, and has a pipeline of more than 60 GW of renewable projects.



If you're going to make jet fuel from natural gas you need the CO2 from the wellhead
this is why natural gas plants are perfect for making synthetic fuels
