What is Sustainable Aviation Fuel made from?
Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) can be produced from a variety of sustainable resources, also known as feedstocks. This includes forestry and agricultural waste, used cooking oil, carbon captured from the air, and green hydrogen. SkyNRG does not use food crops, like soy and palm oil as these sources can be responsible for high rates of deforestation.

How is SAF more sustainable?
As Sustainable Aviation Fuel uses renewable feedstocks, it recycles carbon rather than adding carbon to the atmosphere, closing the carbon loop. This reduces emissions by 70%, significantly lowering the aviation industry’s carbon footprint and dependency on fossil fuels. In addition, it is a ‘drop-in’ fuel meaning it can be mixed in or replace traditional jet fuel without having to alter any of the infrastructure or equipment.
What are the benefits of Sustainable Aviation Fuel compared to fossil jet fuel?
Sustainable Aviation Fuel emits a minimum of 75% less emissions compared to fossil jet fuel, including from production, distribution, transportation and combustion. It also reduces other harmful emissions like particulates and sulfur by 90% and 100% respectively. These reductions are critical ways to reduce the impact of climate change on our planet.
