World Energy joins ATAG to promote SAF usage


World Energy said that it has joined Air Transport Action Group (ATAG) as an associate member to help aviation sector achieve its decarbonisation goals.

“World Energy is one of a growing number of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) suppliers to join ATAG, highlighting the importance of collaboration in ramping up SAF availability as the aviation sector scales up its energy transition,” said ATAG in a statement.

ATAG unites airlines, airports, airframe and engine manufacturers, air navigation service providers and sustainable energy providers around a common mission to help drive aviation towards net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.

SAF is one of the important element of this strategy, for which the scale up in production is essential.

World Energy has been at the forefront of commercialising renewable fuels for over 25 years and was the world’s first commercial-scale sustainable aviation fuel producer.

“As a pioneer in commercialising SAF for over a decade, we are well aware of the power of collaboration. We are thrilled to be joining ATAG to align more effectively with the aviation community to decarbonise flight. As one of the world’s only suppliers in the nascent global SAF industry, World Energy is committed to scaling the market and is making significant investment in SAF production with a goal of producing 1 billion gallons annually by 2030,” said Gene Gebolys, CEO, World Energy.

World Energy SAF is certified by the Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB) and is CORSIA-compliant.

The company produces 100% Hydro processed Esters and Fatty Acids (pure neat HEFA) SAF with zero added aromatics, lower sulphur and significantly reduced particulates compared to fossil-based jet fuel.

In addition to World Enegry, other SAF producers including Gevo and LanzaJet have also joined ATAG as associate members to help towards this goal.
