Description: The increasing demand for Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) from airlines and their customers has resulted in a race to both understand the economic drivers necessary to justify capital project investment and choose the most efficient SAF production pathways. Drivers vary regionally based on factors such as feedstock availability, green energy potential, CO2 sequestration geology, and existing asset availability. Two pathways that are receiving significant attention in the US are the conversion of ethanol and/or sugars to jet fuel (ETJ and BioForming®, for ethanol and sugars, respectively). The technologies can be deployed either separately to produce SAF blendstocks or in combination to produce 100% drop-in fuel compatible with today’s aviation fleet and fueling infrastructure. This webinar will provide an overview of the drivers, challenges, and technology options for producing SAF either from ethanol, sugars, or a combination thereof.
