SAF+ Consortium and the eFuel Alliance are cooperating on the ramp-up of climate-neutral e-SAF. Greater cooperation among members of the two organizations aims to leverage their respective efforts, strengthen connections and deliver a unified and global message about the many benefits of e-SAF. An ambitious ramp-up of e-SAF will also have a positive impact on the transformation of other transport applications as such projects benefit from the commercial momentum to transition to low carbon alternative fuels and complimentary infrastructure.

Ralf Diemer, Managing Director of the eFuel Alliance, commented: "The global aviation sector is facing a huge transformation. As a sector that is difficult to electrify, there is no alternative to the use of liquid energy sources in aviation. A rapid ramp-up of renewable fuels is imperative, especially in this sector. At the same time, global competition in aviation requires global solutions. There are few regulations in place around the world that will drive aviation to use synthetic aviation fuels in the long term. In addition, regional or national regulatory solution do not necessarily help the sector globally. Despite the need for a proper regulatory framework which enables the production and use of eFuels, fuel producers, aircraft manufacturers, airport operators and airlines are called upon to move forward the sector towards climate neutrality in an autonomous and ambitious manner. SAF+ Consortium and eFuel Alliance show that self-initiative is a viable and goal-oriented way forward."

Jean Paquin, President and CEO of SAF+ Consortium, said: "E-SAF is an immediate and effective option available to industry players to achieve zero emissions by 2050,. We are proud to bring together a coalition of prominent international players from across the aviation value chain to provide the industry with a sustainable commercial solution for low-carbon aviation that is compatible with existing infrastructure and ready for deployment. With an initial state-of-the-art pilot plant in Montreal, the Consortium is rapidly expanding internationally to meet growing demand and help accelerate the transition to sustainable aviation."

"Our SAF+ Consortium’s colleagues have a similar approach to ours. As a conglomerate of several companies along the synthetic aviation fuel value chain, the member companies combine their particular interests and strengths to create an optimal platform to accelerate the introduction of sustainable aviation fuels in North America," said Mr. Diemer. "Our future joint actions should serve as an example and encourage companies around the world to join us in positioning themselves as early as possible for Net Zero 2050."

An ambitious ramp-up of e-SAF will also have a positive impact on the transformation of other transport applications as such projects benefit from the commercial momentum to transition to low carbon alternative fuels and complimentary infrastructure.

SAF+ Consortium, a Canadian world leader in the development of e-SAF project infrastructure, provides best-in-class technology integration to deliver a sustainable and exceptional commercially ready solution for the decarbonization of the aviation sector. SAF+ Consortium includes partners such as Airbus, Pratt & Whitney, Air Transat, Air France-KLM Group, eFuel Alliance, Aéroports de Montréal and Aéro Montréal.

The eFuel Alliance is a major platform for eFuel producers and the potential users of eFuels, including the aviation sector. The Alliance provides support to initiatives like the SAF+ Consortium in addition to its work on the regulatory front. The major goal is to ramp up the production capacity of eFuels to give the aviation sector the tools to organise its pathway to a net zero future.
