KLM, SkyNRG, and SHV Energy Will Build Commercial SAF Facility

3 June 2019 - KLM, SkyNRG, and SHV Energy announced their investment to build Europe’s first commercial-scale facility dedicated to the production of sustainable aviation fuels (SAF). The new HEFA plant will utilize Haldor Topsoe technology and be located in Delfzijl, Netherlands. The facility is being scaled to produce approximately 33 million gallons of SAF per year from 2022 from regional waste and residue streams as primary feedstocks. KLM has committed to contract 75% of the SAF output for 10 years. Of note is their intent to use renewable hydrogen for the facility in an attempt to get low carbon intensity (CI) scores. It is reported the fuel will deliver at least an 85% reduction in CO2 emissions compared to traditional petroleum-based only fuel. The partnership involved is extensive, including EIT Climate-KIC, Royal Schiphol Group, GROEIfonds, NV NOM, Groningen Seaports, Nouryon, Gasunie, Arcadis, TechnipFMC, Haldor Topsoe, Desmet Ballestra, Susteen Technologies and MBP Solutions.
