Scandanavian firms team up to turn alcohol into jet fuel

Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) typically burns fewer emissions than fossil fuels and may be one of the key technologies to decarbonising the aviation sector.

Around 400,000 metric tonnes of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) made using alcohol could be developed per year as part of the national government’s Fossil Free Sweden scheme to decarbonise hard-to-abate industrial sectors. 

Spearheaded by COWI in partnership with Swedish Biofuels, the initiative will see three new plants constructed to handle the production of the jet fuel, with the first set to be located near Stockholm Arlanda Airport – with the potential to cover 40% of its fuel needs.
