Low Carbon Bio + Synthetic Fuels
Lheidli T’enneh slash to SAF
The Lheidli T’enneh First Nation (LTFN), in partnership with Arbios Biotech, LTN Contracting and Canfor, is focused on generating renewable bio-oil from forest residues, which will be upgraded to sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and other renewable transportation fuels with a low-carbon footprint. This all-encompassing solution includes collection, transport, evaluation, conversion, and testing. Once operational, the project utilizes the world’s largest woody biomass hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL) facility: the Arbios Biotech Chuntoh Ghuna facility in Prince George.
This CICE funded project spans from residue assessment to SAF production testing. The objective is to demonstrate the feasibility of collecting and processing forest residuals while building a robust business case. The vision extends to scaling this initiative within British Columbia and beyond, ultimately proving a unique pathway for production of SAF and renewable transportation fuels.
