MAIRE (NEXTCHEM) Secures Licensing Deal for SAF Plant in US

Our Bureau - : Jun 24, 2024 - : 10:48 pm

MAIRE S.p.A. announced that NEXTCHEM, through its subsidiary MyRechemical, has entered into a licensing agreement with DG Fuels Louisiana, LLC for its NX Circular gasification technology, aimed at producing Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF).

The facility, anticipated to be operational by 2028, will generate 450 million litres of SAF annually from residual biomass and a small proportion of municipal waste. MyRechemical has been appointed as the technology licensor for the gasification and gas treatment units, capable of processing one million tonnes of bagasse and sugarcane trash and pulp per year. This marks the initial phase of SAF production. The contract stipulates that MyRechemical will also provide the proprietary equipment for the gasification package, with an option to apply a modular approach to reduce site contingencies, along with the necessary technical services.

The project aligns with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Fuels & Products Shot initiative, which seeks to decarbonise the aviation sector by industrialising SAF production. Furthermore, SAF derived from biomass or waste resources qualifies under the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA) established by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to lower airlines’ carbon offsetting requirements.

DG Fuels Louisiana is a subsidiary of DG Fuels, a U.S. company involved in renewable hydrogen and biogenic-based, synthetic low-emissions aviation fuel.

“This landmark award confirms the reliability of our technologies and the role of MAIRE as a key player to enable the industry decarbonisation through circular solutions in a strategic market such as the United States, and globally,” said Alessandro Bernini, MAIRE CEO.
