of sustainable transport fuels and renewable chemicals. Government support in setting long- term objectives, providing funding for the scale- up of emerging technologies, potentially giving guarantees to investors for the first plants, and setting production and blending mandates or tax credits is welcome and necessary in creating a positive environment for the uptake of these fuels. Axens, together with it parent company, IFP Energies nouvelle, can support customers Catalytic conversion of advanced/ bioethanol to ethylene Advanced bioethanol or bioethanol (1G ethanol) can be processed and dehydrated using the energy-efficient Atol process for the production of bio-ethylene, an effective route for the decarbonisation of ethylene-based chemicals, such as plastics. Alcohol-to-jet process The alcohol-to-jet process is one of seven pathways certified

Earlier in 2023, Axens announced a project pipeline approaching 1.4 million tonnes per annum of SAF production using its Jetanol alcohol-to-jet technology in different countries. The bio-ethylene is dimerised to butenes and hexenes, which in turn are oligomerised to the kerosene range, followed by a hydrogenation step to saturate the olefins and meet ASTM D7566 specifications (Bernard, et al., 2022).
