Aalborg & Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF)

We are looking for partners

Aalborg has come a long way from the image of a grey and weary city - to an international green hub for sustainable technologies.

Many exiting things are happening in Aalborg these years and we are seeking suitable partners to join us on the journey.

Denmark's first green flight route might depart from Aalborg ✈

The Danish government has announced that Danish citizens should have the opportunity to fly green on a domestic route by 2025 - and in 2030 𝘢𝘭𝘭 domestic flights should be green.

This ambition received further support this week as new funding is heading towards energy projects concerned with producing sustainable aviation fuel.

One of the projects is the 𝐞𝐒𝐀𝐅-𝐀𝐀𝐋 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐣𝐞𝐜𝐭 which is created to develop and demonstrate a new technology for the direct conversion of e-methanol into aviation fuel.

Aalborg Airport is ready for takeoff

Aalborg Lufthavn, Port of Aalborg and Aalborg University are part of the project and the CEO of the Airport, Niels Hemmingsen hopes to find a solution with global potential

- I hope that the first green route will depart from Aalborg. It will also make sense, as the Aalborg-Copenhagen domestic route is the most used, both in terms of number of aircraft and seats. But the most important thing is to find a solution that can be used nationally as well as globally.


Commitment, dedication and accountability is powering the green transition in Aalborg and the city is well known as home of some of the world’s leading energy companies and researchers.

As the challenges of climate change are increasing, new technologies are emerging.

In Aalborg, the conditions for innovation have created a wide range green business opportunities within:

  • Wind energy
  • Methanol fuel cells
  • E-methanol
  • Hydrogen solutions
  • Carbon capture utilisation and storage
  • District heating, cooling technologies and much more
