Sustainable fueltech Velocys

Velocys plc, the Oxford-based sustainable fueltech company, is starting the advanced engineering and design phase of its commercial scale biofuel refinery in Japan with its collaboration partner, Toyo Engineering Corporation.

Toyo’s engineering study will start to establish commercial-scale production of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) in Japan.  During this phase of the project, Toyo will integrate biomass gasification, Velocys’ Fischer Tropsch (FT) technology and other process technologies to efficiently convert woody biomass into SAF.  This project is part of the “Biojet Fuel (or SAF) Production Technology Development Project” of the Japanese Government’s New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO).
