Lighthouse Green Fuels

We are pleased to present our early plans for the LGF project in Billingham, Stockton-on-Tees. LGF will break new ground as the largest and most advanced facility of its kind in Europe producing advanced SAF. Following public consultation and pending planning consent, LGF will process over 1 million tonnes of non-recyclable waste and waste biomass feedstock each year.

The feedstock will be transformed into over 165 million litres of second-generation SAF per year to fuel aircraft at UK airports. We will also produce 30 million litres of green naphtha by-product. Green, or renewable, naphtha can be utilised in several chemical processes as green feedstock for petrochemicals or a potential gasoline blend. During the production process for both SAF and green naphtha we will capture the associated carbon emissions for sequestration, utilising carbon capture and storage technology.

In the coming months, LGF will complete a separate project to reinstate a 50 MW power plant to provide much needed power to the UK National Grid.
