Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) are defined as bio-based and synthetic-based aviation fuels that reduce greenhouse gas emissions relative to conventional aviation fuel. It is an alternative to conventional jet fuel produced from chemical reactions from various feedstocks, both biological & synthetic, such as agricultural residues, forestry residues, waste, algae, cooking oil, plant oils, tallow, sugarcane, molasses, corn, energy crops, and renewable energy among others. The sustainable aviation fuel market is projected to grow from USD 219 million in 2021 to USD 15,716 million by 2030, at a CAGR of 60.8% during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the increasing need for reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the aviation industry. In addition, the increase in the air passengers’ traffic will lead to growing concerns for the reduction of carbon footprint from the aviation industry and in turn drive the market for alternative solutions such as biojet fuels, e-fuels, hydrogen fuels, advanced biojet fuels, technology improvements, hybrid propulsion, and among others.
Contracts, agreements, investments, new product launches and acquisitions are among some of the key strategies adopted by the leading market players and various stakeholders to strengthen and sustain their position in the sustainable aviation fuel market. For instance, In December 2019, Neste signed an agreement with KLM to supply its SAF for the flights from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. This agreement allowed Neste to join KLM’s corporate biofuel program that aims to reduce CO2 emissions of business travel on KLM flights by 100%. In July 2020, Air BP entered into an agreement with Airbus to supply sustainable aviation fuel. The renewable jet fuel will be used in two Air Transat A321LR destined for Montreal, Canada, from Airbus’s facility at Hamburg Finkenwerder Airport. Air BP established a supply route, including transportation and storage facilities at the airport.
