US Company Wins Contract to Provide Compressor for Thailand’s First Sustainable Aviation Fuel Project

Jun 2024

Pennsylvania-headquartered Ebara Elliott Energy (EEE), formerly Elliott Group, recently announced it has been contracted to provide a motor-driven recycle compressor with a variable frequency drive (VFD) for the Sustainable Fuel Development Project (SFP) by TTCL Public Company Limited.

Situated in Bangkok, Thailand, the SFP Project is the country’s first and only Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) commercial production unit, using 100% used cooking oil, operated by BSGF Company Limited (a joint venture between Bangchak Corporation Public Company Limited, BBGI Public Company Limited, and Thanachok Oil Light Company Limited). The initiative strategically positions itself to cater to domestic and international aviation industries.

Thailand’s First Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) Production Plant has an initial daily capacity of 1,000,000 liters. The aviation industry can immediately use SAF without affecting engine performance, and the production of SAF will help reduce the industry’s greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 80,000 tons of carbon dioxide equivalent annually (compared to present emission levels). This 80,000 t-CO2 reduction equals 20 round-trip flights per year between Chicago and Tokyo for 300 passengers.

SAF production utilizing used cooking oil is a common process with existing refinery applications such as hydro-treatment, according to Ebara Elliott Energy’s Director of Sustainability Business Development HongPing Zhang.
