Oriental Energy, Honeywell to develop million-ton SAF

Oriental Energy has collaborated with Honeywell to establish a one-million-ton sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production facility in Maoming, China. The plant will make use of the Honeywell UOP Ecofining technology and is expected to be one of the world’s largest SAF production facilities using used cooking oils and animal fats as feedstocks.

Honeywell and Oriental Energy Company have jointly announced that a sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production facility with an annual output capacity of 1 million tons will be built in Maoming, Guangdong Province in China. The new facility will help meet a growing SAF demand, facilitate greenhouse gas emission reduction in aviation fuel production through the deployment of innovative technologies and support China’s goals to reduce CO2 emissions and achieve carbon neutrality by 2060.

The Oriental Energy SAF project, which is expected to be built in two phases, involves two production units that will process used cooking oils and animal fats as feedstocks. When completed, it is expected to be among the world’s largest SAF production facilities using used cooking oils and animal fats as feedstocks. Using such feedstocks helps reduce lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 80% compared with traditional fuels – or by 2.4 million tons each year for the completed project.
