The Future of Aviation
SAF reduces GHG emissions
by up to 80%
Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel™ (SAF) is a next generation aviation fuel, made from 100% renewable waste and residue raw materials, like used cooking oil. Over the lifecycle, SAF reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by up to 80%* compared to fossil jet fuel. SAF can be used as a direct replacement (drop-in) for fossil jet fuel as it is chemically similar. It is fully compatible with existing jet engines and fueling infrastructure, requiring zero additional investment into them.
Replacing crude oil with renewable raw materials in the production of fuels helps combat climate change through preventing significant amounts of fossil-based greenhouse gas emissions from entering the atmosphere.
More than 370,000 commercial flights have used SAF since 2016; more than 40 airlines and 13 major airports already use and supply SAF and their number is growing rapidly. The demand for SAF is growing, too. Neste currently has an annual production capacity of 100,000 tons (approximately 34 million gallons) annually. By the end of 2023, Neste will have the capacity to produce some 1.5 million tons (515 million gallons) of SAF annually.
Neste will increase its total production capacity of renewable products to 5.5 million tons by the end of 2023 and will be the only global provider of renewable products with a production footprint in North America, Asia and Europe.
