Japan: TotalEnergies and ENEOS will study the sustainable production of aviation fuel at the ENEOS Negishi refinery


PARIS & TOKYO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Regulatory news:

TotalEnergies (Paris:TTE) (LSE:TTE) (NYSE:TTE) and ENEOS Corporation announced a collaboration to jointly conduct a feasibility study to assess the production of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at the ENEOS Negishi refinery in Yokohama, Japan.

The companies have already started to conduct the study for raw material supply and production of SAF related to this project. The proposed unit, with a capacity of 300,000 tons per year of SAF, would process waste or residues resulting in particular from the circular economy, mainly used cooking oils and animal fats. The two companies plan to form a new joint venture to produce SAF.

This collaboration would leverage the companies’ respective areas of excellence and expertise for the development of SAF’s sustainable supply chain in Japan towards 2025:

  • The experience of TotalEnergies in the supply of raw materials and SAF production technology.

  • Negishi Refinery ENEOS Production and Loading/Unloading Facilities Available1which is located in the largest aviation fuel demand area in Japan (Narita and Haneda airports) and aviation fuel marketing network in Japan

Responding to the major challenge of global climate change, the two energy companies have worked to reduce greenhouse gas emissions on a global scale with their customers, paving the way for a decarbonized and recycling-oriented society. In the airline industry, global decarbonization has become a pressing issue and SAF should be an effective way to reduce CO2 emissions. In Japan, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (“MLIT”) has set a target of 10% SAF usage to be achieved by 2030.

By developing and supporting the emergence of a sustainable value chain for aviation fuels, TotalEnergies confirms its role as a leader in the innovation of energy and environmental transition. By acting directly on the carbon intensity of the energy products used by its customers, TotalEnergies is pursuing its strategy of building a multi-energy company with the ambition of achieving zero emissions by 2050 with society.

One of the objectives of the ENEOS group in its long-term vision until 2040 is to contribute to the development of a carbon-free and recycling-oriented society. As part of these initiatives, ENEOS aims to provide a stable supply of the different forms of energy necessary for the needs of the times. By developing SAF’s supply chain, ENEOS will contribute to the decarbonization of the airline industry.
