Navigator and P2X Europe create JV for Portguese e-SAF facility

In Portugal, the Navigator Company and Hamburg-based developer P2X Europe have signed a memorandum of understanding to create a unique and powerful joint venture, P2X Portugal, to develop a world-class production facility for industrial-scale production of non-fossil jet fuels or e-SAFs (e-Sustainable Aviation Fuels) – carbon-neutral synthetic kerosene, based on green hydrogen and biogenic CO2.
This project leverages on Portugal’s highly competitive renewable energy sources and on biogenic CO2 generated by Navigator’s biorefineries using sustainable forests, which together constitute the two critical elements for the successful production of net-zero synthetic jet fuels on an industrial scale, fostering the decarbonization of the aviation industry.
The JV is tapping into the extensive know-how of P2X Europe, a global pioneer in PtL (Power-to-Liquids) project development and technology configuration. On top, the quality of the JV builds on Navigator’s vast industrial operational experience in biorefinery plants and forestry capabilities.
