GPS Renewables, SAF One to setup SAF plant in India


Indian biofuel technology company GPS Renewables announced that it has partnered with SAF One to develop sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production plants in India.

The partners aim to develop a SAF production capacity of 20-30m litres using lignocellulosic waste feedstock (dry plant matter) as feedstock in India.

The projects will be developed using GPS’ platform ARYA.

As India moves towards mandating 1-5% blended usage of SAF starting in 2027, we need more collaborative efforts to address the challenges associated with the production of SAF,” said Mainak Chakraborty, CEO and co-founder, GPS Renewables.

“At GPS Renewables, we are committed to eliminating these bottlenecks and facilitating India’s seamless transition towards clean energy. This collaboration with SAF One is a step in that direction. We look forward to a fruitful partnership to accelerate the production of SAF and help India become a leader in SAF.”

GPS is one of the leading biofuel-based renewable energy producer in India. The company has executed projects in compressed biogas, renewable natural gas, 2G ethanol and green hydrogen. The company has already established more than 100 biogas plants including the Asia’s municipal solid waste-to-RNG plant in Indore, India.
