In a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed on 21 September 2023, ORLEN and Yokogawa Europe have come together to enhance the technological process responsible for synthesising fuel from carbon dioxide and green hydrogen.

ORLEN is looking to establish itself as a frontrunner in this market segment, poised to drive effective decarbonisation of the aviation industry.

Synthetic fuels are essential in the pursuit of the aviation sector’s carbon neutrality, offering the distinct advantage of not relying on fossil fuels. ORLEN’s target is to attain a production capacity of 70 thousand tonnes of such fuels annually by the end of 2030.

“ORLEN’s partnership with Yokogawa marks a major milestone towards achieving our strategic goal to launch synthetic fuel production. Our joint project will help us to develop a comprehensive industrial scale process for the production of synthetic fuels. With our Japanese partner we already have a very successful track record of cooperation in optimisation of our refining and petrochemical processes. I am happy such an experienced and reliable partner will support the development of ORLEN’s new business line,” says Daniel Obajtek, ORLEN’s CEO and President of the Management Board."

Under the partnership, ORLEN and Yokogawa aim to develop an integrated management solution for the production of synthetic fuels. The joint endeavour will involve the creation of a virtual replica of a production facility, referred to as a ‘digital twin’, which will enable the simulation and fine-tuning of production processes with a focus on selecting the most economically viable and environmentally sustainable synthesis method. The solution will be applied to a new production facility of synthetic fuels production, which will be constructed by the end of 2030.
