Boeing eyes Brazil as source for SAF supplies

Boeing has earmarked Brazil as a prospective world-leading producer of sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) as concerns over supplies grow.
Concerns have been raised over SAF supplies, to meet global net-zero aims. Boeing has singled out Brazil given the country is already among the world’s largest producers of biofuels from agriculture.
“Brazil has the technical capacity, qualified workforce and raw material,” Boeing’s Latin America head, Landon Loomis, said.
“This could help post the concrete results and impacts needed for us to solve together this global challenge of how to decarbonise aviation.”
About 25% of transport in Brazil was already powered by biofuels in 2021, according to the International Energy Agency, including ethanol which can be used in SAF production.
The International Air Transport Association anticipates that SAF will be the main contributor to the industry’s decarbonisation meanwhile, thanks to 80% lower lifetime emissions than its fossil-fuel alternatives.
