Solarig plans to set up SAF plant in Spain

Solarig, a renewable energy firm based in Madrid, has announced plans to establish a sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) plant with an annual production capacity of 60,000 tonnes in Parque Empresarial del Medio Ambiente (PEMA), Garray, Spain.

The project, named ‘Numantia SAF,’ will integrate fully dedicated renewable assets, including a 370MWp solar photovoltaic plant, a 50MW wind farm, and battery storage with a capacity of 100MWh.

Construction is scheduled to commence in 2026, with commissioning and operation expected by 2028.

The plant will facilitate two pathways for SAF production: the gas-to-liquid (GtL) pathway, which involves the reforming of biomethane obtained from local agricultural and livestock waste valorization, and the power-to-liquid (PtL) pathway, combining biogenic CO₂ with renewable H2.

Solarig aims to power both pathways with renewable energy and intends to decarbonize the transport sector by capturing and utilizing 140,000 tonnes of CO₂ annually, along with reducing 170,000 tonnes of CO₂ per year.

Solarig has entered into an agreement with the Sociedad Pública de Infraestructuras y Medio Ambiente de Castilla y León (Somacyl) to acquire 116,000 square meters within PEMA for the plant’s location.

Miguel Ángel Calleja, President, and CEO of Solarig, stated, “Solarig announces a pioneering project globally with a fully circular approach: it involves the use and recovery of biogas produced from agricultural and livestock waste, together with renewable resources such as water, wind, and sun.”
