GPS Renewables, SAF One come together for SAF projects in India

GPS Renewables’ project platform, ARYA, along with SAF One, will co-develop a 20 to 30 million litres per year Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) facility using lignocellulosic waste feedstock (residual dry plant matter).

Biofuels conglomerate GPS Renewables has announced that it has partnered with Dubai-based SAF One for the construction and development of Sustainable Aviation Fuel Projects in India. SAF One is a platform focused on the development of global sustainable aviation fuel solutions,

As a part of this partnership, GPS’ project platform, ARYA, along with SAF One, will co-develop a 20 to 30 million litres per year Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) facility using lignocellulosic waste feedstock (residual dry plant matter).

Mainak Chakraborty, CEO and Co-Founder, GPS Renewables, said, “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 Sustainable Aviation Fuel. At GPS Renewables, we are committed to eliminating these bottlenecks and facilitate India’s seamless transition towards clean energy.”

Mainak also held that the collaboration with SAF One is a step in that direction and the two clean energy companies look forward to a fruitful partnership to accelerate the production of SAF and help India become a leader in Sustainable Aviation Fuel.

Deepak Munganahalli, Co- Founder and Director at SAF One, said, “This collaboration adds to SAF One’s growing pipeline of projects globally and is a cornerstone of our strategy to support and transform the aviation sector. GPS’ extensive experience in green energy projects in India and SAF One’s expertise in the development of sustainable aviation fuels while capitalising on its principals’ track record in aviation and circular economy makes for an ideal partnership. ”
