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.
