California Sustainable Aviation Fuel Facility

Air Products' $2.5 billion major expansion project will produce sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at World Energy’s Paramount, California location. This site is the world’s first and North America’s only commercial-scale SAF production facility.

As part of the project, Air Products has extended its Southern California hydrogen pipeline network to supply hydrogen to the existing World Energy facility and further increase supply reliability for all of Air Products’ hydrogen pipeline network customers in Southern California. The expanded pipeline network will also enable us to provide low- or zero-carbon hydrogen in the future.

The project, which represents another pioneering moment in Air Products’ commitment to help support the energy transition, will help advance California's decarbonization goals by producing a renewable fuel to meet the growing demands of the aviation industry.

Sustainable Aviation Fuel Project

Targeted for 2025 commercial operation, this facility will utilize renewable feedstocks to produce 100% sustainable aviation fuels. Air Products will construct and own the facilities, including a new hydrogen plant (to be operated by Air Products) as well as renewable fuels manufacturing facilities (to be operated by World Energy), while also extending the company’s existing Southern California hydrogen pipeline network.
