Our July TAKE-OFF Newsletter is out now!

Dear TAKE-OFF Partners and Friends, We are in the middle of the project’s last year in which most of the partners’ collaborations are coming together. I am grateful for all the connections,

TAKE-OFF holds its spring general assembly in Odense

From 12-13 June, the TAKE-OFF consortium gathered in Odense (DK) to hold its Spring General Assembly. This assembly was even more valuable in light of the upcoming end of our project in December 2024.

TAKE-OFF hosted its second Open Doors Day at its project partner SDU

Today, TAKE-OFF hosted its second Open Doors Day at its project partner SDU’s premises in Odense, Southern Denmark. Our one-day event was attended by twenty participants from all over Europe.

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.
