To meet the aviation industry’s ambitious ‘net zero carbon emissions by 2050’ target, several measures need to be taken, including more fuel-efficient aircraft technologies, improved operating practices and ground infrastructure, and the use of sustainable aviation fuel.
In their cooperation, Airbus and Neste are focusing on the technical development of SAF, approving the fuel and testing current and future production technologies, and exploring how to enable 100% use of SAF.
SAF delivers the performance of conventional jet fuel but provides a significantly smaller carbon footprint. The use of Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel™ reduces greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80%* over the fuel lifecycle compared to fossil aviation fuel.
Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel is 100% produced from renewable waste and residues, including used frying oil and animal fat waste. Before use, SAF is blended with conventional aviation fuel and can be used in existing aircraft engines and fuel infrastructure without any problems.
