ABB partners with Cap Clean Energy to drive Sustainable Aviation Fuel production in Canada

ABB, a renowned leader in electrification and automation technology, has inked a deal with Cap Clean Energy to join forces in establishing sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production facilities across Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta in Canada. Through this Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), ABB will leverage its expertise in automation, electrification, and digital solutions, including the ABB Ability™ System 800xA® distributed control system and eHouse modular substation solutions, to optimise the operations of the biofuel plants.

Once operational, Cap Clean Energy’s facilities will churn out ultra-low carbon SAF by utilising non-combustion conversion methods on cereal crop by-products, ensuring they do not interfere with food supplies. Additionally, these sites will integrate carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology to curtail CO2 emissions.

Brandon Spencer, President of ABB Energy Industries, expressed pride in the collaboration with Cap Clean Energy, emphasising their shared goal of advancing sustainable fuels within the energy transition landscape. Spencer highlighted the immense potential of SAF and underscored the agreement as a testament to ABB’s dedication to fostering a cleaner, low-carbon future through innovative technology.

According to the International Energy Agency’s (IEA) Tracking Clean Energy Progress 2023 report, aviation presently contributes 2% of global energy-related CO2 emissions, with its growth outpacing other transportation sectors in recent decades. Despite this, SAF currently represents less than 0.1% of total aviation fuel consumption.
