With this appointment, Worley has been given the responsibility to manage the delivery of Velocys’ fully integrated technology package which converts waste feedstocks into sustainable aviation and road transport fuels.
UK – Velocys, the sustainable fuels technology company, has recently announced the appointment of Worley to manage the delivery of its fully integrated technology package.
Worley, one of the leading engineering contractors, is the partner in the development of pre-feasibility, feasibility and Feed packages for all projects in the Velocys portfolio. This allows Velocys to leverage synergies across multiple projects and geographies. Worley’s global reach allows an effective collaborative partnership to deliver projects worldwide.
The fully integrated technology package converts waste feedstocks into sustainable aviation and road transport fuels. Velocys has selected all the technology suppliers for its Bayou Fuels woody-biomass-to-fuels project in Natchez, Mississippi, USA. The same technology package will be used for the Altalto Immingham waste-to-fuels project in the UK.
The careful selection and combination of the above technologies provides a de-risked solution enabling the processing of different solid feedstocks (including both woody biomass and municipal solid waste), and sufficient flexibility to allow production of multiple products including Synthetic Paraffinic Kerosene (SPK) and diesel. A capture-ready carbon dioxide stream is also produced, enabling negative-emissions fuels wherever CO2 usage or storage options are available, as is the case for the Bayou Fuels project.
