Sustainable Aviation Fuel

Defining SAF

Sustainable Aviation Fuel, otherwise known as SAF, is a non-fossil-derived alternative to conventional jet fuel. A ‘drop-in fuel’ that can be safely blended with conventional jet fuel at a maximum ratio of 50%, requiring no modifications to existing aircraft engines or infrastructure. With the potential to reduce CO2 lifecycle emissions by up to 80%, sustainable aviation fuel is a cleaner and greener substitute for conventional jet fuel.  

For sustainable aviation fuel to be eligible for its use of the term ‘sustainable’ it must adhere to eligibility criteria defined at a macro level.  

There are several production pathways for sustainable aviation fuels; bio-SAF derives from agricultural residue sources called feedstocks, including used cooking oil, algae, forestry residues and even municipal waste. Meanwhile, e-SAF is a synthetic fuel derived from renewable energy sources.  

Sustainable Aviation Fuel is available for Luxaviation Group in different locations. The SAF map lets our clients visualize the SAF availability, enabling them to plan accordingly.
