Sustainable e-fuels
for sustainable aviation


Sustainable & affordable e-fuels at scale for sustainable aviation


To achieve carbon-neutrality in 2050, sustainable solutions need to be developed in all sectors. Aviation is under great pressure, due the current fossil technologies, long lifetimes of planes, and large share of global CO2 emissions, currently reaching about 2-3% globally and 4% within the EU. 

Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) are the best solution to push aviation towards emission reductions. Bio-based SAF is a great first step, but no silver bullet, due to feedstock limitations, limited cost degression potential and a broad variety in emission reduction level. E-fuels have the best potential to achieve sustainable and affordable SAF at scale, but the technology is still immature suffering from high cost and low efficiency.


The rapid growth of SAF demand is threatened by its limited availability and high cost. A new type of organization is required that develops a scalable and integrated e-fuels SAF production process directly connected to lowest-cost renewable electricity (solar & wind). With this approach, Spark can close current and future demand-supply gaps and achieve most economic production of sustainable e-fuels at scale.

By developing load-flexible and scalable e-fuels production steps that can rapidly deployed to lowest-cost renewables locations, Spark addresses the most relevant bottlenecks for the role out of e-fuels: high cost, low volumes and limited sustainability. With this novel approach Spark thrives to deliver sustainable e-fuels for a sustainable aviation industry.



Solving key bottlenecks by directly accessing fluctuating renewables

CO2 source
Renewable electricity
CO2 separation
E-fuels synthesis
E-SAF refining

By developing its proprietary e-fuels synthesis and SAF refining technology, Spark enables an integrated and load-flexible e-fuels production process that can be connected with fluctuating renewables directly. With its end-to-end process design Spark will produce lowest-cost, most sustainable SAF at scale and therewith overcome current challenges to reach net-zero in aviation.
