At the moment kerosene, which does not come from rotted dinosaurs but from renewable raw materials, is very expensive. This is also due to the fact that there is currently hardly any mass production. The German state of Bavaria wants to change that.
In the Burghausen region, where there is already a classic refinery, a plant for the production of “green kerosene” is to be built. Economics Minister Hubert Aiwanger (Free Voters) said, among other things, that in the first step around 50.000 tons should be produced per year.
A consortium is behind the project, including Lufthansa, Munich Airport, Siemens, MAN, MTU and the Technical University of Munich. The consortium is led by the Austrian OMV, the owner and operator of the existing refinery in Burghausen.
