We consider each of our SAF production facilities a project because each has a unique sustainability profile. For more information about how we develop projects see our Sustainability page.
The first North American Direct Supply Line (DSL) will be our pioneer project and will be located in the Pacific North West region (PNW). The PNW offers one of the most promising launch pads for the Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) industry in North America due to the following:
The Pacific Northwest
✓ Abundant and available supplies of municipal solid waste (MSW) with over 5 million tons of garbage currently being buried underground in the region annually.
✓ Existing industrial site(s) in the region that could be repurposed into state-of-the-art low carbon fuel production facilities.
✓ Abundant renewable energy to facilitate green hydrogen to be included in our production process.
✓ Strong low carbon fuels policy support in OR, WA, CA, and BC.
✓ Major corporations and local communities are very supportive of new innovative solutions for aviation emission reductions.
✓ World-class development team with a strong track record in regional biofuel project development.
Based on our preferred technology pathways for SAF production, we are evaluating numerous industrial sites in the PNW region. Our focus is on securing partners, sourcing inputs, offtake contracts for our SAF, logistics, community support, and labor availability for our workforce needs.
We plan to supply our SAF to the regional airports including Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Vancouver, Canada.
While our primary focus is the production of SAF, we will have co-products that include ground transportation fuels and the potential for renewable chemicals. The final product slate will be based on policy and regional demands along with the economic value of our products. Part of our mission includes developing a robust and comprehensive production model that a) allows for diversity of products, b) facilitates swift adaptation to changing market conditions and c) maximizes the efficiency of our facilities.
Going green as a team
We have the clean energy expertise to make Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) a winning proposition for the people, business, and health of our world. But we cannot do it alone. Equitable partnerships are essential to our business.
SkyNRG will support its affiliate SkyNRG Americas in multiple efforts, including:
1) SkyNRG will manage SAF sales and distribution from our DSL-PNW project. With over 10 years of experience and having delivered SAF on all continents across the globe, SkyNRG is the ideal partner in SAF sales and distribution for everything we do at SkyNRG Americas.
2) SkyNRG Americas’ projects will benefit from the Board Now program which will enable the business case for this commercial facility with the support of local and international corporate clients. More information on our programs and solutions efforts can be found here.
3) SkyNRG will share its wealth of experience developing and collaborating on pre-commercial supply chain projects through the Future Fuels team. These Future Fuel activities will lead to making informed decisions on feedstock-technology combinations in a regional setting.
