NextChem awarded new project in UAE for transformation of solid waste into SAF

Maire S.p.A. announced Dec. 19 that NextChem, through its subsidiary MyRechemical, has been awarded a feasibility study for the integration of its proprietary waste-to-syngas technology in a large-scale conversion plant that would transform solid municipal waste into sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).


Developers of the SAF plant are LanzaTech and Tadweer, which announced the project in December.


This is the first major project in the United Arab Emirates aimed at producing up to 120,000 tons per year of SAF.


MyRechemical will provide the gasification unit to transform solid waste streams into synthesis gas (syngas).


This syngas will be converted into low carbon ethanol and then to SAF.


“We are happy to participate in the first waste-to-chemicals initiative in the UAE,” commented Giacomo Rispoli, CEO of MyRechemical.


“This achievement further confirms our commitment in valorizing alternative feedstocks contributing concretely to the reduction of the carbon footprint in the aviation sector,” Rispoli continued.


“This happens in a country like UAE where we boast a longstanding presence in the transformation of natural resources, and which is now open to sustainable innovation,” Rispoli added.


Maire leads a technology and engineering group that develops and implements innovative solutions to enable the energy transition.


It offers sustainable technology solutions and integrated engineering and construction solutions in nitrogen fertilizers, hydrogen, circular carbon, fuels, chemicals and polymers.


Maire is active in 45 countries and relies on over 7,000 employees supported by over 20,000 people engaged in its projects worldwide.
