The UK government has awarded Saudi Arabia’s Alfanar £2.4 million ($3.1 million) from its £15 million Green Fuels, Green Skies competition to help develop its Lighthouse Green Fuels (LGF) sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) project. Alfanar has already committed £1 billion to the project, which will use gasification and Fischer-Tropsch technology to turn household waste into a potential 180 million liters/yr of SAF and naphtha. The SAF will offer carbon savings of 80% compared to fossil jet or more if carbon capture and storage technology is also used.
