Worley has been awarded a front-end engineering and design (FEED) services contract by Alfanar for a low‑carbon fuels project in Teesside, United Kingdom.
Alfanar’s Lighthouse Green Fuels project will convert residual solid waste into sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and green naphtha. The project will process around one million tonnes of residual solid waste every year – such as municipal solid waste, refuse-derived fuel or solid recovered fuel – into around 3,200 bbl/day of SAF and green naphtha.
“Our work with Alfanar on this important project will contribute to the decarbonization of air and road transportation,” explained Bradley Andrews, President at Worley. “The project aims to make fuel which produces 80 percent fewer greenhouse gases than current fossil fuels, which could potentially save over 300,000 tonnes per annum of emissions each year. When coupled with carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology the plant could achieve in excess of 750,000 tonnes per annum.”
