ABB and Cap Clean Energy Collaborate on SAF Production
04.08.2024 By Tank Terminals - NEWS

April 08, 2024 [Biofuels International]- ABB has signed an agreement with Cap Clean Energy to collaborate on sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production sites in the Canadian provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta.


As part of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), ABB will explore how its automation, electrification and digital technology – including the ABB Ability™ System 800xA® distributed control system and eHouse modular substation solutions – can optimise the biofuel facilities.

Once operational, Cap Clean Energy’s facilities will produce ultra-low carbon SAF from non-combustion conversion of cereal crop by-product feedstocks that do not compete with food. The sites will also incorporate carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology to reduce CO2 emissions.

“We are proud to collaborate with Cap Clean Energy and realise our joint vision of driving scale on sustainable fuels as part of the energy transition,” said Brandon Spencer, president of ABB Energy Industries.
“The potential for SAF has never been greater, and this agreement demonstrates our commitment to supporting a low-carbon future with innovative clean technology.”
“We are delighted to collaborate with ABB, which has a long history of delivering integrated automation, electrical and digital technology that drives operational efficiency,” said Steve Polvi, CEO of Cap Clean Energy.
“Together, we will work on enabling the production and delivery of SAF and RD into strategic North American markets, supporting society with more sustainable energy and allowing the aviation industry to achieve its net-zero goals.”
Cap Clean Energy’s biofuel facilities will be designed as modular systems capable of rapid production scale-up.
The concept can then be applied as part of a wider, long-term rollout across a network of integrated and connected bio-refineries.
