GIDARA Technology to Help Convert Solid Waste into SAF
04.25.2024 By Tank Terminals - NEWS

April 25, 2024 [biofuels International]- GIDARA Energy’s HTW (High Temperature Winkler) technology for gasification of solid waste to syngas has been selected by Aker Solutions (AKSO) to contribute to a feasibility study for the Equinor Mongstad Industrial Transformation (MIT) project.


The aim is to convert solid waste and RDF to produce SAF.

GIDARA aims to present the in-house HTW Gasification unit as part of the study, with the intention of converting solid waste feedstock to a clean syngas. This includes the pre-treatment of waste (drying/storing) and raw syngas cleaning/treatment.
The clean and green syngas will then be used to produce SAF through a Fischer-Tropsch or, alternatively, a methanol/ethanol-to-jet process.
“GIDARA Energy’s purpose is to help solve humanity’s waste problem, reduce CO2 emissions and thus combat climate change. They are delighted to be considered as a potential supplier to Aker Solutions and Equinor and to present our HTW technology,” said Dr Norbert Kamp, CEO GIDARA Energy.
GIDARA Energy is focused on converting waste feedstocks into sustainable fuels and circular chemicals using patented technologies.
GIDARA Energy’s HTW technology generates syngas, a versatile mixture capable of producing sustainable fuels such as methanol, hydrogen, methane and bio or circular chemicals.
This syngas can also be directly converted into heat and power, offering additional utility for various sectors aiming to reduce fossil resource use and carbon emissions.
