FOSTERING SUSTAINABLE AVIATION FUEL
Airbus’ partnership with DG Fuels is all set to support the scaling of a promising technology to produce sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) from cellulosic waste and residues.
An emerging leader in SAF, DG Fuel’s production system is based entirely on cellulosic waste products, such as wood waste from the logging industry, and renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar power.
DGF’s plant aims to have an initial production capacity of 120 million US gallons (454 million litres) of SAF per year on average, which could save approximately 1.5 million tonnes of CO2 emissions annually from 2026.
Michael Darcy, Chairman and CEO at DG Fuels concludes: “The DGF team is excited to have finalised this SAF partnership with Airbus and we look forward to working together to accelerate the initial SAF facility in Louisiana and the subsequent scale-up at various locations in the United States and beyond.”
