LanzaTech UK has been granted permission to setup a sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) facility on a former-industrial site at Crown Wharf.
Work on the new facility is due to commence this winter and production is scheduled to begin two years’ later.
The proposed alcohol-to-jet facility in Port Talbot will produce about 100 million litres of SAF per annum - about 10% of the sustainable aviation fuel that the UK plans to use by 2030.
However, the company awaits legislation, investment and offtake agreements to move forward to a final investment decision.
The application for the facility received a unanimous vote for approval by Neath Port Talbot Council’s Planning Committee in the south-west of Wales.
“We are delighted that Neath Port Talbot Council has approved our planning application. This milestone marks an important step for Project Dragon and demonstrates the potential for Port Talbot to transition to clean green industries that build on its heritage whilst providing jobs and wider benefits for the local community,” said Jim Woodger, managing director, LanzaTech UK.
