There are many biological and thermochemical platforms to convert different types of feedstock into value added products; however most of these technologies can only convert a narrow range of feedstock types into a limited number of products, such as corn to ethanol, algae to ethanol, and waste to power. In contrast, gasification is a tecnological pathway that can convert almost all of any carbon-based feedstock into a wide range of downstream value-added products in an environmental, safe manner.
Gasification of waste has been used for several years but not in the same scale as this project and not to produce Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF).
Some actors today use waste as raw material to produce ethanol and ”green” chemicals.
The gasification technology from our chosen partner has been demonstrated and proven on an integrated basis at a scale consistent with what will be deployed on a commercial basis.
