The EU Innovation Fund will back up the Swedish project to produce synthetic sustainable aviation fuel with 80 million euros, which is equivalent to nearly 900 million kronor.
The parties involved in the project are Vattenfall, Shell, Lanzatech, and SAS as potential fuel users.
According to the parties, this so-called ‘electro fuel’ is produced with fossil-free electricity and in this case, captured carbon dioxide from district heat production.
Waiting for more
The plant which will produce this green aviation fuel will supposedly be able to produce at least 25 percent of SAS's requirements for sustainable aviation fuel by 2030.
However, more information about its features, production, and investments has not yet been revealed.
