Alder's technology converts woody biomass, forest and agricultural waste to produce SAF while using the same refineries, pipelines and engines as traditional fuel. United, which began using biofuels in 2009, has also pledged to buy 1.5 billion gallons of SAF over the next 20 years.
The company in 2015 made a similar commitment with alternative fuels developer Fulcrum BioEnergy Inc., agreeing to buy up to 900 million gallons of low-cost sustainable biofuels from waste, particularly woody biomass from the paper and pulp industry, the food industry and others.
The companies hope to commercialize the technology by 2025.

Sinopec's preliminary budget will fund the necessary R&D, production of hydrogen, purification, treatment, storage and transport facilities. The company will also upgrade its refineries and petrochemical plants to use "green" hydrogen in their operations to reduce their carbon footprint. The goal is to avoid 10 million tpy of CO2 by 2025.
The company also plans to install 7,000 solar power projects totaling 400 MW at its network of 30,00 fuel stations and increase its low carbon plant-based fuel supply capacity to provide 100,000 tpy of aviation biofuel (SAF) and 1.45 million tpy of ethanol by 2025.
Sinopec emitted 170.9 million tonnes of greenhouse gases in 2020, 84 pct of which were attributed to its oil refining and chemicals manufacturing operations, according to its latest sustainability report. (Source: Sinopec, S.China Morning Post, Sept., 2021) Contact: Sinopec, www.sinopecgroup.com
