Aviation fuel from CO2

The TAKE-OFF project will develop and demonstrate the technology needed for the production of the next generation Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) using captured CO2 and hydrogen. This technology route aims to develop a highly innovative process which produces SAF at lower costs and higher energy efficiency compared to other power-to-liquid alternatives.

New T&E’s Roadmap Includes SAF Among the Best Technologies to Reach Climate-neutral Aviation

Last week, Transport & Environment (T&E) published its “Roadmap to climate neutral aviation”, which analyses the most promising paths to reduce aviation emissions by the end of this decade and

New Power-to-X Project in Portugal Transforms Municipal Waste-derived CO<sub>2</sub> into SAF

A new project for a fully integrated industrial-scale Power-to-X facility at the Maia Energy Recovery Plant in Portugal (Waste-to-Energy, WtE) has recently been launched by a consortium composed of Veolia,

PROJECT CONCEPT

The  TAKE-OFF project entitled “Production of synthetic renewable aviation fuel from CO2 and H2” has received funding for 4 years  from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement N°101006799 .

TAKE-OFF’s aim is to produce more energy efficient, and high environmental performance  Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) at lower cost to decrease the carbon footprint and climate impact of flying.

In that context, the project will develop and industrially validate innovative processes for the direct conversion of CO2 and renewable H2 to light olefins and subsequent conversion to Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF). Next to this, the indirect conversion of CO2 and renewable H2 to light olefins, via methanol/dimethyl ether will also be demonstrated. Both technology developments for the direct and the indirect route are complementary and serve to advance the  development of the proposed technology chain, while also minimising risk by a multi angle approach.

The TAKE-OFF project is led by TNO and gathers a highly skilled and multidisciplinary consortium from the entire SAF technology chain.
