Enoc partners with Marubeni to produce SAF


Emirates National Oil Company (Enoc) signed a MOU with Japanese trading and investment business  Marubeni to produce sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).

“Through partnerships like this one, we intend to extend our reach beyond the UAE, contributing to the broader GCC region’s SAF ecosystem. This is a strategic component of ENOC’s plan to provide SAF to all our customers by 2030, aligning with our Group’s vision for a greener and more sustainable future in the aviation industry,” said ​​​​​​​Saif Humaid Al Falasi, CEO, Enoc Group.

Enoc Group recently announced its plan to provide SAF to all its customers by 2030.

The SAF produced by the two companies will be sold across the Middle East and North Africa region.

Meanwhile, Marubeni Middle-East & Africa Power Ltd President Atsushi Suzuki said that: “our first SAF production facility is about to become a reality, and our discussions with regional carriers serving Dubai Airport are incredibly promising.”

Last month, Enoc signed an agreement with Neste to explore potential for SAF production.
