Biofuels: ARGUS US West Coast Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF)

ARGUS US West Coast SAF 

With more global carbon reduction mandates coming online and airlines looking to fulfill their environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) requirements they will look to sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to meet their needs. SAF is the primary solution for airlines to fly more sustainably, as electrification is not yet a solution.

Through self-governance by airlines, and low-carbon fuel standard programs in California and Oregon, sustainable aviation fuel is quickly becoming a highly sought-after commodity.

SAF is fuel for airlines that is not derived from crude oil, but from sustainable fuels, including used cooking oil, ag residues, wood waste, etc. This can then be mixed with conventional jet fuel and dropped into an airline in the same way the petroleum-based jet fuel is.
