British Airways to partner with LanzaJet for SAF production

    British Airways (BA) signed (09-Feb-2021) a partnership agreement with sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) company LanzaJet. BA will invest in the development of LanzaJet’s Freedom Pines Fuels facility in the US, with works to commence in 2021. The facility will convert ethanol into SAF using LanzaJet’s Alcohol to Jet (AtJ) chemical process. BA expects SAF produced at the facility to be available to power a number of its aircraft by the end of 2022. BA CEO Sean Doyle stated: “Following the successful start-up of the Georgia plant, we hope to then deploy the technology and SAF production capacity in the UK“, noting that LanzaJet will undertake early stage planning and design for a potential commercial AtJ facility for BA in the UK. Mr Doyle added: “The UK has the experience and resources needed to become a global leader in the deployment of such sustainable aviation fuel production facilities, and we need Government support to drive decarbonisation and accelerate the realisation of this vision”. LanzaJet was established in Jun-2020 as a partnership between LanzaTech and the US Department of Energy Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. [more – original PR]
