Honeywell Obtains First Batch of SAF

Phoenix Engine Development Facility to Ramp Up Testing of Next-Gen Blended Fuels

Honeywell received its first delivery of sustainable aviation fuel at its Phoenix Engines campus.

The new fuel will allow Honeywell to kickstart development and production testing of upcoming auxiliary power units and engines at the site, as well as testing out units fresh from the field in their repair and overhaul facility.
The SAF delivered was developed by World Energy of California using Honeywell’s UOP "Ecofining" technology. The fuel is created by converting readily available renewable materials like hydrotreated esters and fatty acids. The resulting stock can be mixed with conventional jet A to power aircraft in blends up to 50%. Blended SAF requires no changes to engine or aircraft fuel systems or fuel infrastructure. Honeywell has plans to test other brands and SAF blends in order to assure customers of guaranteed functionality once SAF becomes more commonplace. With carbon limitations on the aviation industry looming, it's nearly guaranteed that operators will be pushed to rely entirely on synthesized, blended fuels going forward.
“At Honeywell, we see SAF as a logical path to decarbonize the aviation industry and we consider our facilities as laboratories for sustainable innovation,” said Dave Marinick, president of Engines and Power Systems, Honeywell Aerospace. “Honeywell has a wide variety of ready-now solutions to help create a more sustainable future for the aviation sector, and we are proud to make this progress on our sustainability commitments in our propulsion and power systems portfolio. Running our engines and APUs on SAF is a further demonstration of our commitment to our customers to do our part to reduce our carbon footprint.”
