The testing confirmed the use of 100% SAF does not affect engine performance and pushes the aviation industry forward in its decarbonization efforts ahead of the first transatlantic 100% SAF flight.
Over the course of the 20-year agreement with USA BioEnergy, the use of SAF may avoid 30 million metric tons of carbon emissions.
The flight is set to take place later this month from London’s Heathrow Airport to New York’s JFK.
The goal is to help advance the use of hydrogen in aviation fuels as well as other heavy transportation sectors.
Researchers test flights with the same aircraft, comparing the use of 100% SAF-powered flights to those using conventional fuel, overall working to determine whether SAF use mitigates the formation of contrails.
A bioenergy fund is the largest of the financing and will go to help decarbonize hard-to-abate sectors.
The market, valued at about $249.9 billion in 2022, is expected to reach $696.2 billion by 2030, reportedly representing an opportunity for SAF market growth.
The system will credibly report for airlines, logistics service providers and end customers such as corporates.
