Twelve to Begin Commercial-Scale Production of E-Jet Fuel
Chemical company Twelve will scale the production of E-Jet® fuel, a sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) made from CO2 and renewable energy, with a commercial-scale production facility in Moses Lake, Washington.
E-Jet fuel is a drop-in synthetic fuel that works seamlessly with existing aircraft, faces no feedstock constraints, and has up to 90 percent lower lifecycle emissions compared to conventional fossil-based fuels.
Twelve produces its E-Jet fuel using the company’s carbon transformation technology, which uses only renewable energy and water to transform CO2 into critical chemicals and materials traditionally made from fossil fuels.
“Commercial-scale production of E-Jet fuel is a major milestone in our mission of creating a world run on air,” said Twelve co-founder and CEO Nicholas Flanders in a statement. “Washington is the perfect location for our facility, with its abundant renewable energy resources to power our carbon transformation process and longstanding global leadership in the aviation industry.”
The first customers to receive E-Jet fuel from the plant will be companies and major airlines with which Twelve has existing partnerships, including Shopify, Alaska Airlines, and Microsoft.
