Haffner Energy to utilize LanzaJet’s alcohol-to-jet technology for Paris-Vatry SAF project

Paris-Vatry SAF, the sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production plant project at Paris-Vatry airport, will be developed with leading alcohol-to-jet (ATJ) technology provider LanzaJet.

The project, carried by Haffner Energy, will provide an initial capacity of 30,000 tpy of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), with the possibility of tripling production. Paris-Vatry SAF is the first in a series of new SAF projects with Haffner Energy’s solutions.

“Our collaboration with LanzaJet for the Paris-Vatry SAF project allows both companies to bring decisive advantages to produce SAF through the ATJ pathway, states Haffner Energy’s CEO Philippe Haffner. We are thrilled to be working with LanzaJet and provide together a solution compatible with European mandates thanks to our combined technologies.”

Specifically selected for the Paris-Vatry SAF project, ATJ is one of the two most advanced pathways for ASTM-approved SAF production. To comply with EU regulations on SAF, the biomass currently must be sourced from advanced feedstocks. This is the considerable advantage provided by SAFNOCA, the biomass-agnostic solution developed by Haffner Energy. Through the ATJ pathway, syngas produced by SAFNOCA is converted into ethanol using LanzaTech’s carbon recycling technology, then into SAF using LanzaJet’s leading ATJ technology.

In addition, Haffner Energy will target residual and local biomass to build a truly sustainable project that fuels the circular economy and benefits the community.

The technology developed by Haffner Energy, backed by 30 years of expertise converting advanced feedstock into syngas, will allow the ATJ pathway to comply with the European SAF mandates.
