Air Liquide Engineering & Construction has been awarded an engineering package by engineering firm Alfanar to support the development of the Lighthouse Green Fuels project located in Teesside, UK.
This initiative is a significant step in the UK’s efforts to convert both biogenic and non-biogenic solid wastes into sustainable aviation fuels (SAF). Air Liquide’s involvement includes providing licences, basic engineering, and FEED for the plant, incorporating advanced syngas cleaning, hydrogen purification, and carbon capture technologies.
The facility aims to annually process one million tonnes of waste, generating SAF set to power the equivalent of over 25,000 short-haul or 2,500 long-haul flights.
The plant is slated for commercial operation in 2028, marking a notable stride in waste-to-SAF technology at an industrial scale.
