Sustainable Aircraft Fuel – Pioneering Green Aviation Technology
BRITISH AIRWAYS BECOMES THE FIRST AIRLINE IN THE WORLD TO USE SUSTAINABLE AVIATION FUEL PRODUCED AT SCALE IN THE UK
WHAT IS SUSTAINABLE AVIATION FUEL?
Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) is a “drop-in” fuel that meets all the same technical and safety requirements as fossil-based jet fuel. SAF contains the same hydrocarbons (and thus the same tailpipe emissions) as fossil-based kerosene, but the difference is that the hydrocarbons came from a more sustainable source. This results in a net reduction of emissions when comparing to fossil jet fuel on a life cycle basis.
Rather than removing carbon from the ground through the extraction of fossil fuels, the hydrocarbons are sourced from sustainable feedstocks like used or waste cooking oils, tallow (waste animal fats), waste biomass, and municipal solid waste (MSW), among others.
SUNWAYS SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS TRAVEL
Sunways Sustainable Business Travel can calculate the CO2 emissions from your company’s travel and offset this by planting trees. Through this Sustainable Business Travel initiative, we will restore ecosystems and maintain healthy forests that will remove harmful CO2 from the atmosphere.
This simple yet powerful act will help reverse climate change, creating a safe, sustainable future planet.
LET US BUILD BETTER TRAVEL TOGETHER…
Outside of the environmental benefits of planting trees, this offsetting solution is easy and inexpensive – on average it costs around £2 per tree (less than a flat white from your favourite coffee spot).
Sunways Sustainable Travel will further support your commitment to reducing your company’s business travel carbon emissions with this simple pledge:
As a client of Sunways, if you choose to join our carbon offsetting programme, we will donate the first tree for every flight booking your company makes…A FIRST IN UK BUSINESS TRAVEL!
