Sustainable Aviation Fuel
Cleared for Takeoff:
Fly Forward with PETRONAS Sustainable Aviation Fuel
Powering the Future of Flight: Understanding Sustainable Aviation Fuel
Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) is an alternative to conventional jet fuel, derived from sustainable feedstocks. It is a drop-in fuel, without requiring changes to infrastructure or aircraft, meeting all physical and safety requirements. SAF offers a significant reduction in emissions associated with air travel.
Supports net zero targets by 2050
Uses sustainable feedstock such as used cooking oil
Produces up to 80% less lifecycle carbon emissions compared to traditional jet fuels*
Can be blended up to 50% depending on the technology pathway
Used like regular jet fuel without any changes needed to the fuelling infrastructure or aircraft
Aligns with international framework related to carbon emission reduction in aviation
From Waste to Wingtip
SAF can be produced from a variety of sources, including waste materials and renewable biomass. Our production adheres to the CORSIA-eligible technology pathways approved by ASTM D7566, ensuring high standards of sustainability and efficiency.
First generation
Utilising food-based crops like grains, sugar and oilseeds.
Second generation
Employing non-food biomass and waste materials such as agricultural residues, forest residue, municipal solid waste, algae and used cooking oil.
Using innovative feedstocks like carbon dioxide (CO2) and renewable electricity to produce synthetic hydrocarbons.
From Emissions to Efficiency: Why SAF?
The aviation sector is responsible for 2.5% of global CO2 emissions. By switching to SAF, we can significantly reduce these emissions and support global efforts to combat climate change. SAF offers a viable path to decarbonise aviation without compromising performance or safety.
Environmental Impact
SAF significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions, particulate matter, and other pollutants compared to conventional jet fuel. By using SAF, airlines can contribute to global efforts to limit temperature rise and protect our planet.
Economic Benefits
SAF production can potentially create new economic opportunities, including job creation in sustainable agriculture and advanced biofuel production. It also supports energy security by diversifying the aviation fuel supply chain.
Fuelling the Future: Taking Off with PETRONAS SAF
PETRONAS SAF provides a safe, immediate, proven and reliable solution used by many leading commercial airlines. We are constantly expanding our distribution network to ensure the availability of PETRONAS SAF for our partners as they seek to decarbonise their operations.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • What is Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF)?

    SAF is a renewable alternative to conventional jet fuel, made from sustainable feedstocks such as used cooking oil, agricultural residues and municipal solid waste. It reduces greenhouse gas emissions and helps the aviation industry transition towards a more sustainable future.

  • How is SAF different from traditional jet fuel?

    SAF is produced from renewable resources and has a lower carbon footprint compared to traditional jet fuel derived from fossil fuels. SAF is compatible with existing aircraft engines and infrastructure, allowing for seamless integration without the need for modifications.

  • What feedstocks are used to produce SAF?

    SAF can be produced from a variety of feedstocks, including:
    • Used cooking oil (UCO)
    • Agricultural residues
    • Municipal solid waste
    • Non-food crops
    • Algae

  • How does PETRONAS Dagangan Berhad the sustainability of its SAF production?

    We adhere to stringent sustainability standards and international guidelines such as CORSIA (Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation). We prioritise the use of waste materials and non-food biomass to minimise environmental impact and avoid competition with food resources. Our commitment to innovation and research ensures that our SAF production processes are efficient, sustainable and aligned with global best practices.

  • What is the role of CORSIA in the adoption of SAF?

    CORSIA (Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation) is an international initiative to achieve carbon-neutral growth in the aviation sector from 2020 onwards. It relies on the use of carbon credits to offset emissions and encourages the adoption of SAF to reduce the overall carbon footprint of aviation. PETRONAS Dagangan Berhad ensures that our SAF production meets CORSIA's stringent requirements.

  • How does PETRONAS Dagangan Berhad collaborate with airlines on SAF?

    We offer tailored solutions and offtake agreements to airlines, ensuring a reliable supply of SAF. Our team works closely with aviation customers to develop and implement fuel strategies that align with their sustainability goals. These collaborations help airlines reduce their carbon emissions and contribute to a greener future for aviation.

  • What are the current technological pathways for producing SAF at PETRONAS Dagangan Berhad?

    We are currently focusing on the HEFA (Hydroprocessed Esters and Fatty Acids) pathway, which uses waste oils and fats to produce aviation fuel. Additionally, we are researching other promising pathways, including Alcohol-to-Jet (AtJ), Gasification and Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis, to ensure efficient and sustainable SAF production processes.

  • How can individuals and businesses participate in the UCO campaign?

    Our used cooking oil (UCO) awareness campaign encourages individuals and businesses to recycle their used cooking oil for SAF production. By participating in our UCO collection efforts, you can help reduce waste, support the production of sustainable aviation fuel and contribute to a more sustainable future. Learn more about how to get involved on our UCO Campaign page.
