Vattenfall and Shell have agreed to terminate their collaboration on the HySkies sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) project taking place in Sweden.

Currently in the feasibility phase, the initiative began in 2021 after Vattenfall, SAS, LanzaTech and Shell signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to explore the production of SAFs on a large scale in the Forsmark Region.

H2 View understands that Vattenfall will no longer take up a €80.2m ($86.8m) EU Innovation Fund grant for the project.
