British Airways to power selected flights with sustainable aviation fuel from early 2022

Post by nopy99 »

British Airways will become the first airline worldwide to use UK-produced sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) from early next year.

The carrier has signed a deal with Phillips 66 to purchase SAF produced at the group’s Humber Refinery.

The fuel – produced from sustainable waste feedstock – will be delivered to BA via existing pipeline infrastructure which feeds directly into UK airports.

Phillips 66 said that BA will purchase “enough sustainable fuel to reduce lifecycle CO2 emissions by almost 100,000 tons, the equivalent of powering 700 net-zero CO2 emissions flights between London and New York on its fuel-efficient Boeing 787 aircraft”.

The news follows last month’s Memorandum of Understanding between BA’s parent company IAG and sustainable fuels technology firm Velocys, for the purchase of an expected 73 million gallons of SAF
