Plock plant will supply SAF from 2025
This product will be made from used cooking oil.
PKN ORLEN and PLL LOT have signed an agreement on cooperation in implementing pro-environmental solutions helping to meet the requirements of the EU’s Fit for 55 package.
Once the project at the Płock refinery is completed, PKN ORLEN will be able to make up to 300,000 tonnes of hydrotreated oil per year.
Daniel Obajtek, president of the management board of PKN ORLEN, said: ‘The aviation industry perfectly shows the scale of change that is taking place across the entire energy and fuel industry.
“That’s why we consistently invest and develop technologies that will enable us to offer advanced clean products to our customers, while sharpening the competitive edge of the group. According to our estimates, sustainable aviation fuels will account for 3% of global consumption in 2030. This is a huge development opportunity, which we want to capitalise on effectively in line with the ORLEN2030 strategy.”
“Passengers’ trust in LOT is both an honour and a commitment. We care about the environment as well as the safety and comfort of travel. Sustainable fuel is one of the numerous initiatives PLL LOT is taking to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. I am thrilled to be able to pursue that goal in partnership with PKN ORLEN, a regional leader in biorefining,” added Rafał Milczarski, president of the management board of Polskie Linie Lotnicze LOT.
