MAIRE S.p.A. announces that NEXTCHEM (Sustainable Technology Solutions BU), through its subsidiary MyRechemical, leading the Waste-to-Chemical segment, has signed a licensing contract with DG Fuels Louisiana, in relation to its proprietary NX Circular gasification technology.

DG Fuels Louisiana is a subsidiary of DG Fuels, a U.S. company engaged in renewable hydrogen and biogenic based, synthetic low emissions aviation fuel.

The plant, expected to be operational in 2028, will produce 450 million liters per year of SAF derived from residual biomass and a minor part of municipal waste.

MyRechemical has been selected as technology licensor for the gasification and gas treatment units able to process 1 million tons per year of bagasse and sugar cane trash and pulp, representing the first step for the SAF production. The licensing contract provides that MyRechemical will also supply the proprietary equipment for the gasification package with an option for applying a modular approach to minimize site contingencies, as well as the associated technical services.

Alessandro Bernini, MAIRE CEO, commented: “This landmark award confirms the reliability of our technologies and the role of MAIRE as a key player to enable the industry decarbonization through circular solutions in a strategic market such as the United States, and globally”.
