Project FLITE

The FLITE consortium, led by SkyNRG and with LanzaTech as the technology provider, will build the first-of-its-kind LanzaJetTM Alcohol to Jet (AtJ) facility. The facility will convert waste-based ethanol to sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at a scale of at least 30,000 tons/yr.

RSB will provide key support through guidance on RSB certification of the facility. This will involve the mapping of supply chain feedstocks, risk assessments and screening, training to the facility operators, and ongoing support to prepare for certification.
