Chevron and Gevo announce plans to build facilities that’ll produce sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) made from natural sources.
Chevron, an oil giant, and Gevo, a company that produces renewable chemicals and advanced biofuels, announced plans to build and operate facilities where corn will be used to produce sustainable fuel for airplanes.
SAF is a biofuel that can power aircraft. Compared to conventional jet fuel, it has a much smaller carbon footprint, and it can even improve aircraft performance.
SAF can be made from corn grain, algae, wood mill waste, oilseeds, oils, fats, and greases.
Chevron and Gevo didn’t disclose how much SAF they will produce. Considering that aviation fuel demand is expected to reach 35 billion gallons per year, there’ll be a huge demand for it.
