TotalEnergies and SINOPEC forge partnership to develop Sustainable Aviation Fuel

TotalEnergies and China Petroleum and Chemical Corporation (“SINOPEC”) have inked a deal to co-develop a Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) production facility at a SINOPEC refinery in China. This venture aims to produce 230,000 tons of SAF annually, utilising local waste and residues from the circular economy such as cooking oils and animal fats.

SINOPEC brings its proprietary SAF production technology, known as SRJET, to the table, while TotalEnergies, a prominent SAF producer in Europe, contributes its extensive experience and proficiency in technical, operational, and distribution domains.

Yongsheng Ma, Chairman of SINOPEC Group, emphasised the significance of this collaboration, aligning with their strategy to foster low-carbon solutions globally. He highlighted SINOPEC’s commitment to delivering eco-friendly energy solutions while enhancing the quality and efficiency of its asset portfolio.

Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman and CEO of TotalEnergies, expressed delight in partnering with SINOPEC, a key player in the global refining sector, to spearhead sustainable aviation fuel production and establish a robust SAF production chain in China. He underscored the pivotal role of sustainable aviation fuels in TotalEnergies’ transition strategy, aligning with the aviation industry’s imperative to mitigate carbon emissions. Pouyanné revealed TotalEnergies’ ambition to achieve an annual SAF production target of 1.5 million tons by 2030.
