SAF+ Consortium signed a memorandum of understanding with the Air France-KLM Group for the supply of second-generation e-SAF during the Paris Air Show. The first deliveries of this fuel are scheduled for 2030. This agreement confirms the expertise developed by SAF+ Consortium at its Montreal plant since 2021.

Jean Paquin, President and CEO of SAF+ Consortium, commented: “The announcement of this partnership strengthens our leadership and accelerates our international growth. We are proud to be supporting the strategy of the Air France-KLM Group, which goes beyond the European mandate with the integration of e-SAF. We are excited to participate in the development of the SAF industry in France as part of this agreement. e-SAF meets the criteria of the roadmap set out by the French government, which aims to reach a production volume by 2030 that will meet the significant needs of the aviation sector.”

Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Canada's Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry, said: "Our government is making sure that Canada is a leader and strategic partner of choice in sustainable aviation. Thanks to the work of Canadian innovators like SAF+ Consortium, our vision is becoming a reality. That's why we're proud to see the company establish a new strategic partnership with the Air France-KLM Group that will not only accelerate the greening of the Canadian aerospace sector, but also support the transition to a carbon-neutral economy."

Synthetic fuel contributes to the decarbonization and reduction of the aviation industry’s CO2 footprint by using available raw materials and renewable energies that comply with international and European regulations (CORSIA and RefuelEU).
