Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) is showing promise as the leading way to reduce carbon emissions from the global commercial aviation sector, with California becoming a leading testbed.

Watch this webinar recording which covers:

  • Full fuel cycle GHG-reduction benefits of SAF per current and future production pathways
  • Dynamics, synergy and tradeoffs associated with co-producing SAF for aviation versus renewable diesel for ground transportation applications
  • Key efforts at California airports to increase SAF’s limited supply and expand displacement of conventional jet fuel
