Ebara Elliot wins contract for Thailand’s first SAF project


Ebara Elliott Energy (EEE) announced that it has been awarded the contract to supply motor-driven recycle compressor with a variable frequency drive (VFD) for the Sustainable Fuel Development Project (SFP) by TTCL Public Company.

Situated in Bangkok, Thailand, the SFP Project is the country’s first and only sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) commercial production unit, using 100% used cooking oil, operated by BSGF Company – a joint venture between Bangchak Corporation, BBGI Public Company, and Thanachok Oil Light Company.

The plant will have an initial daily capacity of 1,000,000 liters.

“Ebara Elliott Energy continues to be a leading compressor supplier in the Thailand market. We are pleased to provide our premier equipment and service for this first SAF project in Thailand and look forward to providing our customers with the best possible solutions to the challenges they face,” said Fucai Lin, area sales manager, Ebara Elliott Energy.

Meanwhile, the company further added that: “We understand that SAF will play an important role in the decarbonisation of the aviation industry, and we are excited to be a part of this innovative project that will contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions in Thailand.”

Earlier in January this year, Bangchak announced that it has begun construction on the SAF plant in Thailand.

The plant is expected to commence operations in the first quarter of 2025. The plant will be operated by BSGF Company and will consist of two main units including the used oil quality improvement unit (pre-treating unit) and the fuel production unit.

The company said it will source used cooking oil (UCO) from households and the business sector through the “Thod Mai Throw” project and other channels.
