Paris/France – Total Energies and Eneos Corporation have recently announced a collaboration to jointly conduct a feasibility study to assess the production of SAF at the Eneos Negishi Refinery in Yokohama city, Japan.

The companies have already started to conduct the study for feedstock procurement and production of SAF related to this project. The proposed unit, which would have a capacity of 300,000 tons per year of SAF, would process waste or residue sourced notably from the circular economy, mainly used cooking oil and animal fat. The two companies are considering establishing a new joint venture to produce SAF.

This collaboration would leverage the companies’ respective areas of excellence and expertise for the development of the sustainable supply chain of SAF in Japan around 2025:
