  • Project Description

    TAKE-OFF is an industrially driven project that will be a game-changer in the cost effective production of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) from CO2 and hydrogen. The unique TAKE-OFF technology is based on conversion of industrial captured CO2 and electrolytically produced H2 via ethylene as intermediate. Due to their strict criteria in terms of physical and chemical properties, the aviation sector is highly limited in the number of options for meeting sustainability goals.
