Sustainable aviation fuel can reduce air travel carbon emissions by up to 80% across its life cycle, so what is stopping its mass uptake?
There was a lot of excitement in late June when Shell, Accenture and American Express Global Business Travel announced they were joining forces to launch Avelia, a blockchain-based sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) book and claim solution for business travel.
SAF is a fuel produced from sustainable resources that reduces aviation fuel life cycle emissions by up to 80% compared with conventional alternatives. The rise of SAF is seen as a significant development towards decarbonising the aviation industry, which is responsible for approximately 2.5% of global carbon emissions.
