HCS Group will reportedly be the first commercial producer in Germany to enter the SAF market.

HCS Group, an international supplier of hydrocarbons and specialty chemicals, signs a project memorandum of understanding (MOU) to develop and build a renewable hydrocarbon facility at HCS Group’s site located in Speyer, Germany, utilizing Gevo’s low-carbon alcohol to jet (ATJ) technology.

The signed agreement anticipates a first project estimated to produce approximately 60,000 tons of renewable hydrocarbons, advanced biofuels and low-carbon sustainable aviation fuel (“SAF”) at HCS Group’s Speyer site by the end of 2024. The HCS Group manufacturing center, operated by the Haltermann Carless brand, is located in the geographical center of Europe at the Rhine river and in the vicinity of Frankfurt airport, offering prerequisites for supplying customers in Europe with SAF, certified under Europe’s Renewable Energy Directive (EU REDII), and a portfolio of certified renewable drop-in fuels and specialty chemicals.
