The plant, expected to be operational in 2028, will produce 450 million liters per year of SAF derived from residual biomass and a minor part of municipal waste. MyRechemical has been selected as technology licensor for the gasification and gas treatment units able to process 1 million tons per year of bagasse and sugar cane trash and pulp, representing the first step for the SAF production.
