TotalEnergies, SINOPEC partner to produce SAF
TotalEnergies SE and China Petroleum and Chemical Corporation (SINOPEC) have signed a Heads of Agreement (HoA) to jointly develop a sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production unit at a SINOPEC refinery in China.

France-headed global multi-energy major TotalEnergies SE and China Petroleum and Chemical Corporation (SINOPEC) have signed a Heads of Agreement (HoA) to jointly develop a sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production unit at a SINOPEC refinery in China.

The planned unit, to be jointly owned by SINOPEC and TotalEnergies, will have the capacity to produce 230,000 tonnes of SAF per year and will process local waste or residues from the circular economy such as used cooking oils (UCO) and animal fats.

We are very pleased to collaborate with SINOPEC, a major player in the global refining industry, to produce sustainable aviation fuels and structure a SAF production chain in China. The development of sustainable aviation fuels is at the heart of our company’s transition strategy, as we strive to meet the aviation industry’s demand to reduce its carbon footprint. TotalEnergies has set itself a target of 1.5 million tonnes of annual SAF production by 2030, said Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman and CEO of TotalEnergies.

SINOPEC has developed its own SAF production technology, called SRJET. TotalEnergies, already one of Europe’s leading SAF producers, will bring its experience and expertise in the technical, operational, and distribution fields.

This milestone collaboration with TotalEnergies is in line with our strategy in the development of low-carbon solutions for China and the world. SINOPEC is committed to providing green and low-carbon energy solutions while improving the quality and efficiency of its asset portfolio, said Yongsheng Ma, Chairman of SINOPEC Group.
