Shell Informs Community Of New Ambitions For SAF

Company Goal To Produce Around 2 Million Tons Of SAF By 2025

Shell informs the community of its ambition to produce around 2 million tons of sustainable aviation fuel a year by 2025. By 2030, the company also plans to have at least 10% of its total, global fuel sales as SAF.

“Currently, sustainable aviation fuel accounts for less than 0.1% of the world’s use of aviation fuel. We want to help our customers use more SAF,” said Anna Mascolo, President of Shell Aviation. “With the right policies, investments and collaboration across the sector we can accelerate aviation’s progress towards net zero by 2050.”

“Last week we announced that we have taken a final investment decision for a new biofuels plant at our Rotterdam Energy and Chemicals Park. Shell also offers certified nature-based carbon credits to offset emissions, and we are exploring other ways to help aviation get to net zero, including hydrogen power.”

The report, “Decarbonising Aviation: Cleared for Take-off” is a joint report published by Shell and Deloitte, based on the views of more than 100 aviation industry executives and experts. In the report, emphasis is placed on the need for a greater ambition for the current, global industry targets, and that the aviation sector should aim to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.

Outlined in the report are 15 ways to reduce emissions between now and 2030 that will help aviation to reach net zero by 2050. Shell’s companion report Decarbonising Aviation: Shell’s Flight Path outlines how Shell, as one of the world’s largest suppliers of aviation fuel and lubricants, can help its aviation customers decarbonise. Shell has also published a companion report titled “Decarbonising Aviation: Shell’s Flight Path” which outlines how Shell itself can help aviation customers decarbonise.

If Shell can meet its goal of 2 million tons of SAF by 2025, they will be a leading global producer of SAF, thus becoming a major supporter in the decarbonisation of the aviation sector.
