The Bayou Fuels plant will enable the commercial-scale production of negative-carbon liquid fuels. It will utilise waste woody biomass feedstock, renewable power and carbon capture and storage to help deliver net zero carbon aviation by 2050.
The deeply negative carbon intensity (on a lifecycle basis) sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) produced at the Bayou Fuels plant will mitigate climate change by significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the hard-to-decarbonize transport sector.
First of a series
Bayou Fuels in Natchez, Mississippi, is the first in a series of planned biorefineries across the South East
The White House has recently committed to producing billions of gallons of SAF to reduce American aviation emissions of greenhouse gases by 20% by 2030 and to achieve net zero carbon by 2050.
Net zero carbon intensity fuel
Bayou Fuels will produce negative-carbon-intensity, sustainable aviation fuel (SAF)
Bayou Fuels will have a capacity of 25 million US gallons a year of negative carbon intensity SAF which can be blended with conventional Jet A to deliver 57 million US gallons a year of net zero aviation fuel.
The plan is to have a series of projects in operation or in final stages of construction that will produce a blended 300 million gallons capacity of net zero carbon intensity fuel, which will avoid over 3 million tons per annum of CO2 emissions.
Invigorating forestry communities, triggering job creation through the planned bio-refineries.
The plants will bring air quality improvements as the fuel is ultra clean with significant decreases in sulfur and particulate matter, benefitting urban communities, and reducing GHG emissions more effectively than any fuel available today.
