Dwek became senior future fuels analyst of SkyNRG in January 2023 after more than two years evaluating the supply chain segment for the company.
SkyNRG expects to complete its dedicated sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) facilities in the United States and Europe by 2030. KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and Boeing have agreed to purchase SAF from SkyNRG, commitments that could worth $4.4 billion, according to the Amsterdam-based supplier.
“This is a thrilling time to be in the SAF market,” Dwek told Cargo Facts. “The importance of SAF for the sustainability of the aviation sector is understood by now, and the global increase in SAF demand requires rapid expansion in production capacity. At SkyNRG we are carrying forward three different projects towards 2030 to build three commercial-scale production plants that deploy three different pathways: HEFA [hydroprocessed esters and fatty acids], AtJ [alcohol-to-jet] and PtL [power-to-liquid].”
“But we cannot change the aviation industry on our own,” Dwek said. “The industry now needs solid partnerships to realize the increase in production capacity.”
The company received an investment of $190 million from the Macquarie GIG Energy Transition Solutions Fund in November 2023.
