International Airport Review
SAF is a decisive technological step towards decarbonisation in the aviation industry.
Representatives of Shell International Petroleum Co Ltd. and Deutsche Lufthansa AG (Lufthansa Group) have signed a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for exploring the supply of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) by Shell to the Lufthansa Group for seven years at airports across the globe, starting in 2024.
The parties contemplate negotiating towards reaching a definitive purchase agreement with the total volume supplied reaching up to 594 million gallons (1.8 million metric tonnes). If a definitive agreement is reached it would be one of the most significant commercial collaborations for SAF in the aviation sector and Shell’s largest SAF commitment to date.
