SAF – Sustainable Aviation Fuel
Sustainable aviation fuel is made in a way that conserves resources. The goal is to take carbon from biomass or gases that are already sustainable and recycle it into jet fuel instead of using fossil jet fuel made from oil. This is the first step towards creating a true CO2 cycle where fuel is burned, the carbon is absorbed through biomass, and then turned into fuel again.
CO2 reduction through biofuels
Over its lifetime, SAF reduces CO2 emissions by up to 80% compared to fossil fuels. However, to be completely carbon neutral, the production and distribution of alternative fuels still need to be improved. Research is being done on how to completely neutralize emissions.
SAF is currently around four times more expensive than regular aviation fuel, which leads to low demand and high production costs. If production plants only make small amounts, they won’t be as efficient as they could be. If there was more demand, larger and more efficient production facilities could be built, which could lead to prices that are similar to fossil fuels in the long term.
Compensaid uses SAF made from used cooking oil, not palm oil or acid distillates. The carbon released during the process was previously absorbed by the plants used to make the cooking oil, so the process is carbon neutral. We guarantee to use the SAF we purchase within six months for flights.
