GEVO, oneworld Announce SAF Purchase Agreement (Ind. Report)
oneworld Alliance,
Date: 2022-03-23
oneworld Alliance, a NYC, NY-headquartered network of international airlines, and Englewood, Colorado-based Gevo Inc. are reporting that certain oneworld Alliance members plan to purchase up to 200 million gpy of Gevo's sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) beginning 2027, for a five-year term. Gevo estimates that the fuel sales agreement should generate approximately $800 million of revenue, inclusive of the value from environmental benefits, across the life of the contract.

Gevo's SAF is expected to be produced using field corn products processed to create ethanol that will then be converted into SAF at one or more facilities under development in the U.S. Midwest. Gevo uses the Argonne GREET model, widely considered the gold standard of life cycle emissions modeling, as a central tenet of its sustainable business system.

Gevo has developed two alcohol-to-jet pathways that can utilize various feedstocks grown using renewable agricultural and sustainable farming techniques. These feedstocks are then converted, in some cases, to high-value nutrition products and energy-dense liquid hydrocarbons, including SAF.

oneworld members include Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Finnair, Iberia, Japan Airlines, Qantas and Qatar Airways.

Qantas to Reach Net-Zero Carbon Emissions by 2050 (Ind. Report)
Qantas Group
Date: 2019-11-13
Australian air carrier Qantas reports it is committed to cap its net emissions at 2020 levels, and to reach net zero emissions by 2050.

This includes offsetting all net emissions from Project Sunrise, the carrier's plan to operate non-stop flights from the east coast of Australia to London and New York, should the project proceed. This will also extend to domestic flying, meaning that growth on key routes like Melbourne-Sydney will be carbon neutral.

Qantas will work with industry, research institutions and governments to develop the long-term solutions to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the aviation industry over the next three decades. The airline currently operates the largest carbon offset program in the aviation industry, with around 10 pct of customers booking flights on Qantas.com choosing to offset their flights.

This additional investment will see Qantas Future Planet, which is already the largest private sector buyer of Australian carbon credits, support more conservation and environmental projects in Australia and around the world. Existing projects include protecting the Great Barrier Reef, working with Indigenous communities to reduce wildfires in Western Australia and securing over 7000 hectares of native Tasmanian forest.

Additionally, Qantas will invest $50 million over the next ten years to support the sustainable aviation fuel industry and continue to reduce its emissions through continued investment in more fuel efficient aircraft, more efficient operations and smarter flight planning to reduce fuel burn.
