Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF)

By replacing petroleum-based jet fuel, sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) has potential to significantly reduce aviation emissions, which make up 9% to 12% of all greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector.

What is SAF?

SAF is a biomass-based fuel made from the same sustainable feedstocks as biodiesel and renewable diesel fuel. SAF currently makes up less 1 percent of fuel used for domestic and international flights, but research is underway to facilitate wider adoption in commercial and private aviation.

What are SAF Benefits?

  • Significantly reduces emissions of greenhouse gases compared with petroleum-based jet fuel
  • Reduces emissions of harmful compounds around airports during take-off and landing
  • Powers aircraft with similar properties as conventional jet fuel
  • U.S.-made to support energy independence
