According to a statement, the planned Teesside SAF plant will be the UK’s first plant creating SAF from waste oils and the other for the previously announced advanced biofuel production from end-of-life tyres (ELT).

The SAF plant will leverage Greenergy’s extensive experience in sustainably sourcing waste oils and feedstock and producing advanced biofuels.

Using existing technologies, waste oils will be manufactured into sustainable aviation fuel, reducing aviation emissions by up to 80 percent. The second project planned for the site will convert end-of-life tyres into recovered carbon black and low-carbon road and marine transport fuels.

The SAF and end-of-life tyres projects are part of Greenergy’s strategy to support the UK’s energy transition through the production and distribution of waste-derived renewable products.  The location on Teesside will help us expand our presence in the area and create more local jobs, explained Christian Flach, CEO of Greenergy.

Both projects will be located adjacent to the company’s existing Teesside biofuel manufacturing facility.

Subject to the successful planning approval process, construction of the plant will begin in 2025 and commercial production will commence in 2027.

These exciting plans are fantastic news for the Borough and if it’s approved, the hundreds of jobs and opportunities this project is set to create will bring a massive boost to the local economy. Stockton-on-Tees is the economic powerhouse of the Tees Valley and when you consider the easy transport access from rail or road, or international links via air or sea, it’s easy to see why businesses continue to be attracted to our area. This is another vote of confidence in our Borough, which is a great place to live and work, said Councillor Nigel Cooke, Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Housing.
