Industry decarbonisation

St1 targets large scale fossil-free aviation fuel production on the Swedish west coast

Vattenfall and St1 have signed a letter of intent to develop a fossil-free value chain for production of synthetic electrofuel and will jointly conduct a feasibility study, aiming at addressing the full value chain for production of electrofuel from offshore wind, starting in 2029 and gradually growing towards the target of one million cubic meters.

In this partnership Vattenfall aims to develop an offshore wind power-based hydrogen supply infrastructure on the west coast of Sweden and St1 plans to produce one million cubic meters of electrofuels, primarily targeted for sustainable aviation fuel using the fossil-free hydrogen. First drops starting from 2029 and onwards. Such volumes equal for example the annual aviation fuel demand of Stockholm Arlanda airport.

Two thirds of Swedish carbon dioxide emissions in 2022 come from industry and transports. Together with industries, Vattenfall works actively with direct electrification and indirect electrification, using fossil-free hydrogen gas. Vattenfall sees huge potential for decarbonisation on the Swedish west coast for industries like refinery and petrochemicals.
