RYAM and VERSO ENERGY Execute Memorandum of Understanding to Explore eSAF

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. & PARIS , February 27 /Businesswire/ - Rayonier Advanced Materials Inc. (NYSE:RYAM) and VERSO ENERGY have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to explore e-fuels and specifically e-SAF or Sustainable Aviation Fuel from renewable resources. As part of the MoU, the companies will explore the feasibility of using the Biogenic Carbon Dioxide (Biogenic CO2) produced at RYAM’s Tartas France plant along with Green Hydrogen to produce eSAF, a vital product needed to help reduce the world’s rising greenhouse gases through Carbon Capture Utilization. The companies expect to qualify for grants from the French government to help fund the cost of this multi-year feasibility study.

“We are excited to be partnering with Verso Energy on this endeavor,” said De Lyle Bloomquist RYAM’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Combining the unique attributes of RYAM’s Tartas plant with VERSO ENERGY’s expertise in the development of renewable energy creates a great opportunity for the potential expansion of new sustainable fuels at the site.”

Antoine Huard, CEO of VERSO ENERGY declares: “We are very proud to announce our agreement with RYAM. By studying the utilization of RYAM’ significant resources in biogenic CO2 combined with VERSO ENERGY’s capability to develop green H2 and e-fuel projects at industrial scale, we are laying strong foundations to meet the challenge of decarbonizing hard-to-abate sectors such as aviation – an industry facing ambitious and binding decarbonation targets as soon as 2030.”
