Coalition Rolls Out Sustainable Aviation Fuel Guide

Edition 2 | 2020

Awareness and concern continue to grow about the harmful effects on the atmosphere of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from industrial installations, power plants, surface vehicles, ocean-going vessels and aircraft. The aviation industry leads the way in taking steps to improve its efficiency, and address its emissions impact.



The single-largest potential reduction in aviation greenhouse gas emissions will come about through the broad adoption of SAF


What is the role of SAF in helping the industry meet its climate change commitments?

What if SAF Is Unavailable?

The industry is pursuing innovative measures to augment or stand in for use of the fuel.

Increasing Regulatory Acceptance 

Key Civil Aviation Authorities globally are actively supporting sustainable growth and SAF is an important part of this drive towards sustainability.

Industry Commitments on Climate Change 

The industry has kept its focus on improving efficiency and reducing its CO2 footprint via four pillars.

Technical Basics 

SAF blending agents must have the same qualities and characteristics as conventional jet fuel in order to substitute and be blended with conventional jet fuel.

SAF Production Today

Any SAF considered for use by the industry must meet all the criteria of, and be included in, ASTM D7566.

Purchasing SAF Today 

Business aviation manufacturers and fuel suppliers are also working to help business aircraft operators increase their use of SAF.


Production of SAF may become more economically viable and compete with conventional fuels as costs are lowered by improvements in production technology, scale and policy support.

Why Should You Use SAF? 

There are several concrete benefits that come with the use of SAF.


We share frequently asked questions and answers for Operators & Owners and Fixed Base Operators (FBOs).
