Boeing, US to advance SAF in APEC countries


Boeing and United States government have agreed to develop and increase the use of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) in Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) member countries.

Boeing, in cooperation with US Department of Transportation and the Federal Aviation Administration will address potential challenges to increase SAF adoption in APEC economies.

Under the partnership, Boeing and US agencies aim to identify sustainable feedstocks for SAF, analyse pathways to optimize SAF production, leverage existing industries and infrastructure for SAF production, enable development of SAF-specific policies and explore book and claim mechanisms in the APEC member countries.

“Industry studies and data tell us that SAF is essential to meet aviation’s net zero commitment, but we need more of it,” said Chris Raymond, chief sustainability officer, Boeing. “This initiative helps deepen the partnerships that we have had for years with several countries to advance SAF. We will foster collaboration and knowledge exchange among APEC economies, all in pursuit of a safe, and more sustainable aviation future.”
