Lhyfe delves into SAF in Le Havre with a Canadian consortium

At Hyvolution, the producer signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the international group SAF+ in an effort to decarbonise the aeronautics industry using green hydrogen.

During an event that was decidedly marked by the Canadian presence, in particular Quebec’s*, Lhyfe partnered up with SAF+, which is a group based in Montreal and a world leader in clean energy for aviation. SAF+ consists of a coalition of several leading international players from the aviation value chain. Among this chain we can mention the group Air France-KLM (for the supply of second-generation e-SAF fuel, with the first deliveries scheduled for 2030), and Airbus.

Similarly to Lhyfe, this group uses available raw materials and renewable energies, in compliance with international and European regulations (CORSIA and RefuelEU).

As part of the MoU announced at Hyvolution, Lhyfe and SAF+ are planning to set up a facility in the port region of Le Havre (Normandy). Lhyfe is to install a green hydrogen production site with a capacity of more than 100 tonnes per day (300 MW of installed electrolysis capacity) in order to supply an e-SAF production site that its Canadian partner is to establish. This industrial complex would be connected to the hydrocarbon transport network, enabling sustainable aviation fuels to be transported from Le Havre to airports in the Paris region and in northern and eastern France via existing infrastructure.

The two partners are aiming for a market launch by 2030.

*Hyvolution will hold an edition in Trois Rivières in Canada in 2025
