HAMBURG – Hamburg will become a production site for sustainable aviation fuels. To achieve this, several partners are mobilizing.

Under the name of “Green Fuels Hamburg”, a consortium made up of the energy supplier Uniper, Siemens Energy, Airbus and the chemical and energy company Sasol EcoFT wants to set up production plants in the south-east of the city, indicated the senators of Economy and Environment Michael Westhagemann (independent) and Jens Kerstan (Green) Thursday with.

A corresponding concept was presented at the International Aerospace Exhibition in Berlin.

Accordingly, a large-scale electrolysis plant for the production of green hydrogen from offshore wind energy is to be built in the Billbrook/Rothenburgsort industrial area. In a second plant, so-called power-to-liquid kerosene is to be produced from green hydrogen in a synthesis process from 2026.

In its first phase of expansion, the plant should produce at least 10,000 tons of green kerosene per year. PtL kerosene is already certified for use as aviation fuel.

Hamburg offers the best conditions for the project both because of its proximity to wind turbines in the coastal area and as one of the world’s leading aviation locations. “The climate-neutral air traffic of the future needs projects like ‘Green Fuels Hamburg’ around the world to take a decisive step forward in production,” said Westhageman.

Kerstan stressed that Hamburg must do everything possible to protect people from the consequences of climate change. In terms of decarbonisation, “green hydrogen in particular and the synthetic energy sources that would come from it would play a key role”.
