TotalEnergies and ENEOS Corporation are partnering to assess the feasibility of a sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production unit at the Negishi refinery in Japan.
TotalEnergies and ENEOS have already initiated feasibility studies for the supply and production of SAF for the project.
The proposed unit, whose annual production capacity would be 300,000 tonnes, would treat waste or residues, mainly cooking oils and animal fats.
The two partners have planned the creation of a joint venture dedicated to sustainable aviation fuels.
This collaboration will mobilise the different areas of competence and expertise of the two companies in order to develop a sustainable SAF supply chain by 2025 in Japan.
TotalEnergies and ENEOS are two energy companies fully committed to meeting the challenge of climate change and are working to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions globally, as well as those of their customers.
SAF are one of the solutions available for a significant reduction in CO2 emissions and meet a strong demand from the aviation sector to reduce its carbon footprint.
Japan's Ministry of Spatial Planning, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism has set a consumption target of 10% SAF by 2030.
By developing and supporting the emergence of a SAF sector, TotalEnergies has confirmed its leading position in supporting innovation in the energy and environmental transition.
The company also confirmed its commitment to its customers by offering them solutions to reduce their emissions.
This is fully in line with TotalEnergies' Climate ambition to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, together with society.
