NEXTCHEM awarded new project in the UAE for the transformation of solid waste into Sustainable Aviation Fuel

22 December 2023

MAIRE announces that NEXTCHEM (Sustainable Technology Solutions BU), through its subsidiary MyRechemical, a leader in waste-to-chemicals, 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). This is the first major project in the UAE 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. This happens in a country like UAE where we boast a long-standing presence in the transformation of natural resources, and which is now open to sustainable innovation".
