Aviation Fuel (SAF).
SAF reduces emissions in aviation by up to 80%
Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel™ (SAF) is a renewable aviation fuel, made from sustainably sourced, 100% renewable waste and residue raw materials, like used cooking oil and animal fat waste. Over its life cycle, 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 450,000 commercial flights have used SAF since 2016; more than 50 airlines and 13 major airports already use and supply SAF and their number is growing rapidly. The demand for SAF is growing, too. Neste is the world’s leading producer of sustainable aviation fuel with a current production capability of 1 million tons per annum. This will grow to 1.5 million tons per annum in the beginning of 2024.
