MOSCOW (MRC) -- Masdar, Siemens Energy and TotalEnergies have signed a collaboration agreement on the sidelines of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW) 2022, to act as co-developers for a demonstrator plant project, which will be established at Masdar City, Abu Dhabi’s flagship sustainable urban development, according to Hydrocarbonprocessing.
Masdar revealed that TotalEnergies will join the Masdar-led initiative focused on green hydrogen to produce sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
Masdar announced ahead of ADSW 2021 last year that it was collaborating with Abu Dhabi Department of Energy, Etihad Airways, Lufthansa Group, Khalifa University of Science and Technology, Siemens Energy, and Marubeni Corporation on the demonstrator plant initiative. Having joined the initiative, the aim now is that TotalEnergies will offer its expertise in SAF production, offtake and supply the partner airlines.
Since January 2021, the partners in the initiative have completed a range of evaluations on technology suppliers, feasibility studies and conceptual designs, while working closely with regulators on compliance issues. The aim is to proceed to the front-end engineering design stage later this year.
As MRC reported previously, earlier this month, TotalEnergies and Plastic Energy formed a joint venture to build a 33,000 tonne/year chemical recycling plant for plastics in Seville, south Spain. Financial details were not disclosed. The facility will be built within Plastic Energy facilities in Seville and expected to start up in 2025.
According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 2,265,290 tonnes in the first eleven months of 2021, up by 14% year on year. Shipments of all grades of ethylene polymers increased. At the same time, PP shipments to the Russian market were 1,363,850 tonnes in January-November, 2021, up by 25% year on year. Supply of homopolymer PP and block-copolymers of propylene (PP block copolymers) increased, whereas supply of injection moulding PP random copolymers decreased significantly.
