September 1 (Renewables Now) - Delta Air Lines Inc (NYSE:DAL) this week announced a sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) offtake deal with DG Fuel LLC, which will help underpin the latter’s planned Louisiana facility that will feature electrolysers from Norway-based HydrogenPro AS (FRA:R6Z).
Under the offtake agreement, DG Fuels plans to supply to Delta 385 million gallons (1.457 billion litres) of unblended SAF. Deliveries are expected to start by the end of 2027 and take place at 55 million gallons per year over seven years. The fuel will probably be produced from timber waste, corn stover and cotton gin waste. DG Fuels aims to combine carbon from such waste feedstocks with green hydrogen.
HydrogenPro is set to provide at least 839 MW of its high-pressure alkaline electrolysers for DG Fuels' Louisiana facility. It said today it expects the contract to be signed in the first quarter of 2023, with the first electrolysers to be delivered in 2024.
"This project will place HydrogenPro as the world's largest supplier of electrolysers, and we are now accelerating our presence in the US," said HydrogenPro interim chief executive and founder Richard Espeseth.
