MAIRE S.p.A. has announced that NEXTCHEM, through its subsidiary MyRechemical, has signed a contract with DG Fuels in relation to its NX circular gasification technology.

The plant, expected to be operational in 2028, will produce 450 million l/y of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) derived from residual biomass and a minor part of municipal waste. MyRechemical has been selected as technology licensor for the gasification and gas treatment units able to process 1 million tpy of bagasse and sugar cane trash and pulp, representing the first step for the SAF production. The licensing contract provides that MyRechemical will also supply the proprietary equipment for the gasification package with an option for applying a modular approach to minimise site contingencies, as well as the associated technical services.

The project meets the requirements set by the US Department of Energy (DOE)’s Clean Fuels and Products Shot initiative, which aims to decarbonise the aviation sector by industrialising SAF production. Additionally, SAF derived from biomass or waste resources is eligible under the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA) established by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to reduce airlines’ carbon offsetting requirements.

DG Fuels Louisiana is a subsidiary of DG Fuels, a US company engaged in renewable hydrogen and biogenic based, synthetic low emissions aviation fuel.

Alessandro Bernini, MAIRE CEO, commented: “This landmark award confirms the reliability of our technologies and the role of MAIRE as a key player to enable the industry decarbonisation through circular solutions in a strategic market such as the US, and globally."
