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 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 with fossil jet or more if carbon capture and storage technology is also used. The UK funding will be used to pay for front-end engineering and design work. Alfanar reiterated its commitment to the plant while UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson was touring the Middle East last week.
