In September 2021, the US Department of Energy (DOE) set a target to supply sufficient sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to meet 100% of aviation fuel demand by 2050. At the time, this seemed ambitious, but Honeywell UOP thinks is more than doable with the rollout of its latest technology and others alike.
The technology firm recently unveiled its eFining™ technology to produce low-carbon SAF. Honeywell’s UOP eFining™ is a methanol to jet fuel (MTJ) processing technology that can convert eMethanol to eSAF reliably and at scale.
eSAFs combine green hydrogen (i.e., hydrogen produced in electrolysers from renewable energy and water) and carbon dioxide (CO2) to produce eMethanol, which can then be converted to a wide range of sustainable fuels.
