Firefly has won the Innovation of the Year award at this year’s WWT Water Industry Awards.
Firefly were recognised for their innovative process that transforms biosolids, a by-product of water treatment, into highly sustainable biofuels, including SAF.
The British company, which has developed a process to convert processed human sewage into fuel, have secured a raft of new MOU agreements signed with key industrial partners including Haltermann Carless, Petrofac, Chevron Lummus Global (CLG) and Anglian Water.
Haltermann Carless, a global leader in sustainable hydrocarbon production, is the owner of a specialist refinery site in Harwich where Firefly will soon build a pilot facility, followed by a planned first-of-a-kind commercial-scale plant shortly thereafter.
The company has also announced a partnership with Chevron Lumus Global (CLG), a leading technology provider in the renewable transportation fuels industry.
CLG will provide bespoke refinery infrastructure, designed to optimize efficiency and flexibility while minimising emissions for Firefly’s commercial-scale plant.
A further agreement has been reached with utility company Anglian Water which has committed to provide Firefly with the waste that will be used as feedstock for the planned pilot facility.
