Green Pulse Podcast: Talking on a Plane: Is Sustainable Aviation Fuel Really Green?

Airplane and engine manufacturers have been pretty good at making efficiency improvements over the years. But international aviation is growing rapidly. Without decisive action, the sector’s emissions will double or even triple between now and 2050.

One immediate solution on offer is sustainable aviation fuel or SAF for short. But how green is it?

In this episode, ST Climate Editor David Fogarty talks to Sami Jauhiainen, Regional Vice President of Renewable Aviation at Neste, a Finnish refining company. It recently expanded its operations in Singapore and is now a major producer of SAF.

Highlights (click/tap above):

1:11 What is sustainable aviation fuel and how is it produced?

4:14 Does Neste use any food crops to produce the fuel?

9:07 Current global demand for SAF

11:59 Environmental benefits and emissions reductions from using SAF

18:07 The current cost of SAF? How will costs come down?
