Australia-based industrial engineering solutions firm Worley has received a contract from Alfanar Energy to provide front-end engineering and design services for a renewable energy project in Northeastern England. Known as Lighthouse Green Fuels, the proposed facility in Teesside is expected to be operational in 2027 as part of the scheduled introduction of the city’s Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy carbon cluster.

It is expected to repurpose and process one million tonnes of residual solid waste such as municipal trash or solid recovered fuel—a product made from residual waste left behind once all commodities and contaminants have been removed—into more than 3,000 barrels a day of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and green naphtha.

“The UK has an opportunity to be at the forefront of the SAF sector, with its access to suitable feedstocks and planned carbon capture infrastructure,” said Noaman Aladhami, Alfanar’s UK country manager. “We chose Worley because of its commitment to supporting sustainable projects and significant experience with delivering complex megaprojects.”
