US aircraft technology developer and manufacturer Boeing plans to purchase 7.5mn USG of blended sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and SAF certificates through Finnish refiner Neste and its partners.

EPIC Fuels will supply 2.5mn USG and AvFuel will supply 1.5mn USG of the total volume with the rest delivered from Neste. The purchase includes book and claim SAF certificates corresponding to emissions from conventional jet fuel. The physical delivered product will consist of a 30pc SAF and 70pc conventional jet fuel blend.

To date, Boeing's intake of blended SAF totals 9.4mn USG, supporting its ecoDemonstrator program and the company's commercial operational flights through 2024.

The company has made similar purchases in recent years as well as supported SAF development through capital funds organized by leaders across the aviation industry.
