Honeywell has taken delivery of its first batch of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) for engine and auxiliary power units (APUs) testing.

“We see SAF as a logical path to decarbonize the aviation industry and we consider our facilities as laboratories for sustainable innovation,” said Dave Marinick, president of Engines and Power Systems, Honeywell Aerospace.

The SAF was delivered by World Fuel Services from World Energy in California. World Energy uses Honeywell’s UOP Ecofining. The SAF came from hydrotreated esters and fatty acids (HEFA).

Honeywell plans to test SAF from other producers and run engines and APUs on 100% SAF.

“Honeywell has a wide variety of ready-now solutions to help create a more sustainable future for the aviation sector, and we are proud to make this progress on our sustainability commitments in our propulsion and power systems portfolio,” said Marinick. “Running our engines and APUs on SAF is a further demonstration of our commitment to our customers to do our part to reduce our carbon footprint.”
