SAF use is the ramp-up of SAF production.
This collaboration is laying
the foundation for Airbus and Neste to
explore business opportunities together
and jointly promote the production and
use of sustainable aviation fuel.
The focus will be on the technical
development of SAF, fuel approval and
testing of current and future production
technologies, and investigating how
" 100 percent SAF " use can be enabled.
" Neste is at the forefront of accelerating
the aviation sector's journey to a
more sustainable future. That journey
requires cooperation across the industry's
value chain. This collaboration
with Airbus connects a pioneer in the
aerospace industry with a leader in
renewable fuels. The combined knowledge
and expertise of the companies
will help advance the use and availability
of SAF as a means of transitioning
aviation towards more sustainable
energy sources and reducing the climate
impact of aviation, " said Thorsten
Lange, executive vice president, renewable

Neste and Airbus Join
Forces to Advance the
Use of SAF in Aviation
Neste and Airbus have signed an agreement
to advance the use of sustainable
aviation fuel (SAF) within the aviation
sector. Both parties share a vision that
SAF is a key solution to helping reduce
greenhouse gas emissions of air travel.
This collaboration aims to accelerate
the aviation sector's transition to SAF.
Reaching the aviation industry's
ambitious " net zero carbon emissions by
2050 " goal, requires different measures
to be deployed, including fuel-efficient
aircraft technologies, improved operations
and ground infrastructures,
as well as deployment of sustainable
aviation fuel.
Neste and Airbus recognize that one
of the biggest challenges in accelerating
aerospace's most promising decarbonization
solutions that can be used in
both in-service aircraft fleets and those
of tomorrow. We are proud to partner
with Neste and drive forward the development
and uptake of SAF, stimulating
the creation of a commercially viable
market for renewable aviation fuels, "
said Julie Kitcher, EVP communications,
sustainability and corporate affairs,
Airbus. " All Airbus aircraft are already
certified for flying with up to 50 percent
SAF, and this partnership will be instrumental
to reaching certification for 100
percent SAF by the end of the decade. "
The agreement between Neste and
Airbus builds on the cooperation in the
ECLIF3 research project, the world's
first in-flight emissions study using 100
percent SAF on a wide-body commercial
passenger aircraft, with Rolls-Royce and
German research center DLR. Following
the collaboration in the ECLIF3 project,
Airbus and Neste will be further
working on the technical aspects of the
challenge to reach the 100 percent SAF
