Orlen to supply Lot Airlines with SAF from 2025

September 22, 2022 |

In Poland, the hydrotreated vegetable oil plant currently under construction in Płock will enable PKN ORLEN to offer a low-carbon sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to airlines starting from 2025. This innovative product will be made from used cooking oils. SAF offers a reduction of up to 80% in carbon emissions over the lifecycle of the fuel compared to traditional jet fuel and is suitable for jet engines used in aircraft today. 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 under way at the Płock refinery is completed, PKN ORLEN will be able to make up to 300,000 metric tons of hydrotreated oil per year, an equivalent of about 50% of the jet fuel produced annually by the ORLEN Group. SAF is similar in its chemistry to traditional jet fuel, and it can be blended with or added to traditional fuel.
