Amid growing commitments for net-zero emissions by 2050 from airlines and governments, e-SAF is commercially-ready for immediate deployment and impact
SAF+ production is an innovation that integrates commercially proven technology, and unlike other energy projects, does not require new infrastructure, integrating seamlessly into existing fuel systems and aviation infrastructure.
With SAF expected to contribute 65% of CO2 reduction required to achieve net zero emissions for the aviation sector by 2050, e-SAF is a crucial response to the urgent need to decarbonize aviation.
Hydrogen and battery power alternatives are not feasible for medium- and long-haul flights for the next decades, which underscores the immediate relevance and necessity of SAF.
SAF+ Consortium is developing world-leading commercial e-SAF production plants with annual production capacity of over 100 million litres of drop-in sustainable aviation fuel. Each plant will have the potential to recycle 300,000 metric tons of industrial CO2 emissions per year.
SAF+ Consortium is making strides towards building an international e-SAF production portfolio with sites in Europe, North America and various other regions in the world. Its first plant is set to be operational by 2028.
Electro-Sustainable Aviation Fuel (e-SAF) is a low-carbon, drop-in aviation fuel that can be used immediately in existing distribution infrastructure. E-SAF is a synthetic jet fuel offering a 90%+ carbon footprint reduction compared to conventional jet fuel. Today, airlines can use up to 50% SAF blend without needing special certification. Airlines and equipment manufacturers are working towards obtaining certification and regulatory approval to use 100% e-SAF as soon as possible.
