Phillips 66 delivers UK made SAF to British Airways
Phillips 66 has delivered UK produced Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) to British Airways. It is part of a multi-year agreement. This is the first time that commercially made UK SAF has been used by an airline.
“Phillips 66 Humber Refinery is proud to supply British Airways with sustainable aviation fuel,” said Darren Cunningham, general manager of Humber Refinery and Phillips 66’s lead executive in the UK (pictured). “The strategic collaboration and supply agreement confirm each companies’ commitment to a lower-carbon future.”
British Airways will add it to existing pipeline. “Being the first airline to source sustainable aviation fuel produced at commercial scale in the U.K. is another breakthrough moment for us and the airline industry,” said Sean Doyle, British Airways’ chairman and chief executive.
Phillips 66 Humber was the first UK refinery to make SAF at scale. “We were the first in the U.K. to co-process waste oils to produce renewable diesel, and now we are the first to produce SAF at scale,” Cunningham said. “We’re currently refining almost half a million liters (about 3,000 barrels) of sustainable waste feedstocks a day, and this is just a start.”
