Haffner Energy to offer a SAF solution for aircraft

Haffner Energy SAF aircrafts

As a producer of renewable hydrogen from biomass, Haffner Energy has announced that it is in discussions with leading players in the aviation sector (airlines, technology suppliers and project developers) with a view to roll out a SAF offer for aircraft.

And to meet the aircraft demand for SAF (sustainable aviation fuels), Haffner Energy has developed the SAFNOCA process. This is a particularly efficient process for converting all available seasonal sustainable biomass residues effectively and with virtually no restrictions. This includes both organic waste and the renewable organic part of household waste. And the resources are available all year round.

In line with the aviation sector’s decarbonisation plans, Haffner Energy is targeting SAF production units with a capacity higher than 35,000 tonnes per year by 2025. By way of example, Geneva International Airport in Switzerland consumed 410,000 tonnes of fossil paraffin in 2022, for a total of 14 million passengers. A SAF production unit of 41,000 tonnes a year would therefore cover 10% of the airport’s needs.

The company claims to have set up 40 projects summing up to almost 600 MW. Since 2010, it has developed the SYNOCA and HYNOCA processes, technologies protected by 15 families of patents that can produce synthetic gas and renewable hydrogen. SAFNOCA is therefore their third offer.
