SAF production to triple in 2024

The international air transport association (Iata) has announced that its projections for a tripling of Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) production in 2024 to 1.9 billion litres (1.5 million t) are on track. This would account for 0.53% of aviation’s fuel need in 2024.


“SAF will provide about 65% of the mitigation needed for airlines to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050. The expected tripling of SAF production in 2024 from 2023 is therefore encouraging. We still have a long way to go, but the direction of exponential increases is starting to come into focus,” said Willie Walsh, Iata’s director general.


Some 140 renewable fuel projects with the capability to produce SAF have been announced to be in production by 2030. If all of these proceed to production as planned, total renewable fuel production capacity could reach 51 million t by 2030, with production sites available in almost all regions. (cj)
