Sustainable fuels

Boosting decarbonisation and reducing global carbon footprint

As part of our commitment to the progressive decarbonisation of the economy and the fight against climate change, we develop energy solutions ranging from renewable energy to the production of sustainable gases and fuels for the decarbonisation of key sectors such as transport and industry.

What are sustainable fuels?

Sustainable fuels are those produced from renewable sources, such as biomass or other types of organic waste (biofuels produced via the Biomass-to-Liquid or Gas-to-Liquid route) or renewable electricity (synthetic fuels via the Power-to-Liquid route).

Sustainable fuels have a reduced (or even negative) net carbon footprint compared to traditional fuels, and are a key factor in decarbonising the economy. Examples of sustainable fuels are green methanol or green kerosene (Sustainable Aviation Fuel, SAF).

The Gas-to-Liquid (GtL) route uses biomethane, biogenic CO₂ and renewable hydrogen as feedstocks resulting in biofuels. The Power-to-Liquid (PtL) route uses biogenic CO₂ and renewable hydrogen as feedstocks resulting in e-fuels. In both routes, the entire electricity supply that powers the different processes is based on renewable energy sources such as solar, wind or hybridisations of the two.

Sustainable fuels approach

We develop solutions that combine the Gas-to-Liquid route with Power-to-Liquid by exploiting our synergies with the green gas production business area (Biorig).

Elements of sustainable fuels

Renewable electricity supply
Renewable electricity supply through hybridisation of solar, wind and/or batteries with grid support.
Renewable H₂ (GtL, PtL)
Electrolysis produces renewable hydrogen and oxygen by using clean electricity to break down the water molecule, the maximum utilisation of which is ensured in all our processes.
Biomethane (GtL)
Exclusive use for the development of Gas-to-Liquid solutions with an assured supply of biomethane from Biorig plants.
Biogenic CO₂ (GtL, PtL)
Supply of biogenic CO₂ provided by Biorig's biomethane plants and through contracts with third parties.
Transport (road, sea and air)
Decarbonisation of the transport sector as responsible for 20% of global emissions with 8 Gt CO₂/year, by replacing traditional fuels with sustainable ones.
Chemical industry
Decarbonisation of the industrial sector, responsible for 23% of global emissions with 9.2 Gt CO₂/year.
