We are proud to announce that our solution for turning CO2 to clean jet fuel has received the Solar Impulse Efficient Solution Label.
“The world needs ambitious solutions to the climate crisis and it’s not easy to know who to support and where to invest resources. The Solar Impulse label is a spotlight that shines on those solutions that can make a difference! It is an outstanding recognition for the team and for our main supplier, Zeton”, said Maria Krupennikova, Project Manager for the SAF+ pilot plant.
“From the onset our partners at Air Transat, Aéroports de Montréal and Ecole Polytechnique and we have been firm believers that recycling carbon emissions into clean fuels will revolutionize the future of transportation. We are glad to add our vision to the 1000 solutions portfolio.” – Alexandru Iordan, co-founder and CTO

This project benefits from financial assistance from the Quebec government and is in line with the objectives of the Plan for a Green Economy 2030.
The first label to assess the economic profitability of products or processes that protect the environment.
The Solar Impulse Efficient Solution Label is attributed following a strict selection process performed by external independent experts. By ensuring high standards of sustainability and profitability, this internationally recognized label is considered as an acknowledgment for innovators and as a credible marker of quality for solution seekers in business and governments, facilitating their sourcing of solutions to reach environmental commitments.
All labelled solutions join the Foundation’s 1000 Solutions program, which aims to encourage the adoption of more ambitious environmental targets and fast-track the implementation of these solutions on a large scale.
The 1000-Solution portfolio will be presented to decision makers in business and government who seek to reach carbon neutrality by Bertrand Piccard, Chairman of the Solar Impulse Foundation, following the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Solar Impulse Foundation – born from the first round-the-world flight with a solar powered plane
The Solar Impulse Foundation is a not-for-profit organization started by Bertrand Piccard, after completion of his round-the-world flight in the solar-powered plane called Solar Impulse. The flight proved that innovation and technology exist now as the logical choice for an economy that creates jobs, modernizes infrastructure, and encourages business to support a future that protects our environment.
