JetBlue Expands SAF Usage

September 13, 2021 — Jetblue has entered into a new partnership with World Energy and World Fuel Services for sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). World Energy began supplying SAF to JetBlue at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) this month. This agreement includes 1.5 million gallons of blended SAF a year for at least 3 years. This will make SAF approximately 5% of JetBlue’s fuel usage at LAX. Realizing that alternative fuel options will play a critical role in the aviation industry’s transition to lower-carbon operations, JetBlue is implementing comprehensive carbon reduction targets. Last year, JetBlue became the first major U.S. airline to achieve carbon neutrality on all domestic flights. The company is aiming to reach net-zero emissions by 2040.

Chevron to Test SAF with Delta Airlines

September 13, 2021 — Chevron is planning to produce a test batch of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to sell to Delta Airlines. The move is in partnership with Google to track SAF test emissions data using cloud-based technology. Delta pledged to replace 10% of its aviation fuel with SAF by 2030. SAF is made from feedstocks such as used cooking oil or animal fat. Even though SAF is currently more expensive than conventional jet fuel, many companies are trying to encourage the use of SAF to lower their carbon footprint. Delta and Chevron are hopeful that this partnership will be mutually beneficial in reducing carbon emissions.

JetBlue to Expand SAF Use

August 26, 2021 — JetBlue and World Fuel Services have reached an agreement for sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). This agreement will include 1.5 million gallons of blended SAF annually for a minimum of 3 years. This will be around 5% of JetBlue’s fuel at LAX. JetBlue views SAF as a promising way to rapidly reduce aviation emissions and further their net-zero goals. Last year, JetBlue achieved carbon neutrality on all domestic flights, primarily through carbon offsets while the SAF industry is still expanding.

Boeing and SkyNRG to Scale SAF Globally

August 26, 2021 — Boeing has announced intentions to invest in SkyNRG Americas’ sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production project. This partnership’s goal will be to scale SAF production globally by improving production capacity and engaging stakeholders throughout the supply chain. SkyNRG Americas is a company that is focused on growing SAF production in North America, and Boeing’s investment in the project includes an advance purchase of SAF from SkyNRG’s facility.

American Airlines to Set Science Based Targets to Reduce Emissions

August 26, 2021 — American Airlines has announced intentions to set science-based targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 2035. American aims to reach net-zero by 2050, and the science-based targets will be their first effort to achieve that. The Science-Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) is a collaborative effort between CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, World Resources Institute, and the World Wide Fund for Nature. American’s plan to reach net-zero by 2050 also includes fleet renewal, investing in sustainable aviation fuel, and improving operational efficiency.
