The aviation industry is taking a big step towards a greener future with the formation of the Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) Coalition.

This newly formed non-profit organization brings together a diverse group of stakeholders across the entire aviation sector, with a common goal: to rapidly advance the development, production, and adoption of SAF.

The SAF Coalition boasts a membership of 40 companies and organizations, including airlines, aircraft manufacturers, biofuel producers, airports, and labor unions. This united front presents a powerful voice that can advocate for policies and incentives that will propel the US towards becoming a leader in the SAF market.

Aviation is a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, accounting for roughly 12% of global transportation emissions. SAF offers a promising solution. This alternative fuel, derived from renewable sources like biomass and waste, can achieve lifecycle CO2 emission reductions of up to 80% compared to traditional jet fuel.

Despite its potential, SAF currently faces limitations. Production capacity is limited, making it more expensive than traditional jet fuel. The SAF Coalition aims to tackle these challenges by supporting policies that will:

  • Increase the supply of low-carbon, cost-competitive SAF
  • Make the US a leader in the global SAF market
  • Foster a robust and competitive SAF marketplace
  • Stimulate innovation and job creation in the US fuel sector

The formation of the SAF Coalition marks a significant step forward for sustainable aviation. By working together, these industry leaders can pave the way for a future where cleaner skies and a thriving US SAF industry go hand in hand.
