Category: Sustainable Aviation Fuel

Sustainable aviation fuel is an advanced aviation biofuel for jet aircraft that is certified as sustainable by independent third-parties, as mandated by global standards body ASTM International. The demand is now a real entity within itself because of the requirements that are moving forward for airlines to be using sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). Using forest biomass for creating sustainable aviation fuel is one of the most promising developments in sustainable aviation fuel space. By 2026, the aviation industry needs to have a percentage of their fuel available or being consumed through this sustainable measure. NWABF is leading the efforts to transform the aviation industry by providing a sustainable aviation fuel solution to meet the growing demand and needs in the renewable biofuels market.


What is Sustainable Aviation Fuel?

Over the recent holidays, I found myself having to explain “What is Sustainable Aviation Fuel, (SAF)?” to friends and relatives who didn’t know much about it. Because of this, I thought there might be others who want to know more about SAF. It is a critically important concept that more people need to know about.  ...

The Path Toward Creating Sustainable Aviation Fuel That Could Change Everything

The largest cost and environmental concern in the aviation industry is fuel. It is this reason that global legislation will require airlines around the world to begin to rely more on Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) to help reduce carbon emission or potentially face huge monetary penalties. This currently presents some real concerns within the airline ...

NWABF Looks at Moving Biomass to Sustainable Aviation Fuel

Northwest Advanced Bio-Fuels (NWABF) is doing something few other companies have ever even considered – taking wood waste that the industry calls woody biomass, which is essentially forest floor residuals and sawmill residues and turning it into Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF). The project is in the second of three phases.  Over the next few years, ...

Why Sustainable Aviation Fuel Is So Important to Airlines

October 2018 saw aviation history – the first commercial flight using sustainable aviation fuel took to the skies, transporting passengers from Orlando, FL to London. Since that time, though, while much has been written on sustainable aviation fuel, it’s a resource that remains very much under development. The technology to produce this type of fuel ...
