Praj picks Axen for Indian SAF


Praj, the Indian biofuel company, and Axens have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to produce Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) in India.

“As a sustainable climate action company we are involved in accelerating energy transition through bioeconomy,” said Shishir Joshipura, CEO & MD, Praj. “Partnership with Axens is yet another step in this regard. With complementary strengths across the value chain of SAF production, this is a definitive step towards cleaner skies in India.”

They plan to use the Alcohol-to-Jet (ATJ) pathway at several sites in India. Praj will use Axens’ Jetanol Alchol-to-Jet catalyst solution.

“As a technology provider, Axens has been deeply involved in India’s journey toward cleaner fuels for more than three decades and we are very excited to continue that work on SAF projects with Praj as new partner,” said Xavier Decoodt, Vice President – Gasoline and ATJ product line at Axens.
