Toyo Engineering starting advanced engineering on commercial Japanese biofuel refinery

August 31, 2021 |

In the UK, Velocys plc says its collaboration partner, Toyo Engineering Corporation. is starting the advanced engineering and design phase of a commercial scale biofuel refinery in Japan.

TOYO’s engineering study will start to establish commercial-scale production of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) in Japan. During this phase of the project, TOYO will integrate biomass gasification, Velocys’ Fischer Tropsch (FT) technology and other process technologies to efficiently convert woody biomass into SAF. This project is part of the “Biojet Fuel (or SAF) Production Technology Development Project” of the Japanese Government’s New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO).

This announcement follows on from the news that the demonstration project successfully produced SAF from woody biomass feedstock using the Company’s proprietary FT technology and enabled the first commercial flight with wood-based fuel.
