aviation lowering CO2 emissions
with drop-in biofuels
With more than 33 million global flights per year, aircrafts are the fastest growing source of greenhouse gas emissions. Aviation is energy-intense and hard to electrify, and its future depends on affordable, reliable advanced fuels.
capturing lower carbon
Chevron’s sustainable aviation fuel can be paired with any fossil jet fuel to create a lower life cycle carbon intensity.
flying’s future of fuel
Lower carbon flights are already in the air. And in 2021, Chevron’s El Segundo refinery became one of the first refineries in the U.S. to ratably coprocess biofeedstock to make sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). The initial test batch of SAF was estimated to lower carbon emissions by 59% on a lifecycle basis compared to traditional jet fuel.
