The future of flying
Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) is a lower carbon intensity alternative to traditional jet fuel made from a blend of renewable sources and jet fuel. It can be produced from several sources, including bio-derived feedstocks such as fats, oils, greases, sugar or materials such as municipal solid waste and recycled industrial gases, that reduce the need for fuel produced from conventional sources.
ExxonMobil is already distributing SAF to customers in France, Singapore and the UK with plans to produce 200,000 barrels per day of lower-emission fuels by 2030.Learn more about ExxonMobil’s plans in this space
