What Is Sustainable Aviation Fuel?

Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) is a combination of traditional jet fuel and renewable jet fuel. The renewable element is produced from sustainable feedstocks and is similar in its chemistry to traditional fossil fuel. This blend of SAF has the same ASTM D 1655 specification and can be used as jet fuel. SAF can reduce lifecycle carbon emissions by over 80% compared to the traditional jet fuel it replaces.

AVIATION SUSTAINABILITY PROGRAMS

CARBON OFFSET

We're collaborating with 4AIR, an industry pioneer in sustainability solutions, to help FBOs and operators begin their sustainable journey. The Phillips 66® Aviation Carbon Offset Program allows FBOs and operators to balance out their environmental impact by purchasing carbon credits. Each carbon credit purchased reduces or avoids 1 metric ton of CO2 emissions and is issued from widely used global standards eligible under the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA).

What is Unleaded Avgas?

Phillips 66 and Afton Chemical have teamed up to develop an unleaded Grade 100 aviation gasoline (UL100). Our vision for UL100 is that it will be fully compatible with 100LL and the 100LL distribution network, allowing the product to service the entire fleet of general aviation aircraft, to meet or exceed the performance and quality characteristics of 100LL as specified in ASTM D910, to be a less hazardous engine emission compared to 100LL and to minimize any cost increases. Our candidate product is currently in pre-requisite testing with the FAA. Learn more about unleaded avgas development at TrustedFuel.com.
