Essar Oil (UK) has joined forces with Fulcrum BioEnergy facility which will convert non-recyclable household waste into sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) for use by airlines operating at UK airports.
This innovative bio-refinery will convert several hundred thousand tonnes of pre-processed waste, which would have otherwise been destined for incineration or landfill, into approximately 100 million litres of low carbon SAF annually.
The project, which will see an investment of approximately £600m, will use Fulcrum’s proven waste-to-fuel process, which is already being deployed at its pioneering facility outside of Reno, Nevada (USA), where operations are due to begin later this year. The plan is for Fulcrum to construct, own and operate the plant within Essar’s Ellesmere Port facility on the Mersey. This will be the first Fulcrum plant outside the United States.
It will also utilise direct pipeline access to pump and transport the SAF to UK airports through the Manchester Jet Line and the UK Oil Pipeline network (UKOP).
