Apollo’s Role in Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF)

Thursday 28th November 2023 marked a momentous occasion for the decarbonisation of the aviation industry with the first 100% Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) fuelled transatlantic flight between London and New York.

Decarbonising Aviation: Navigating Challenges and Embracing Innovation

Decarbonising aviation presents a tough challenge, particularly given that existing zero-carbon technologies like electrification and hydrogen are still in their early stages of development.

The closed carbon cycle of SAF has the potential to significantly reduce the lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions of this challenging-to-decarbonise sector. The demand for SAF is forecasted to skyrocket in the coming years with this demand being propelled by government mandates. However, it is well recognised that meeting this demand will be an enormous challenge.

Power to X: Apollo's Study for Sustainable Aviation Fuel Production

Apollo is currently finalising a Power to X conceptual study for a major UK energy producer. The study explores the production of SAF through an innovative combination of green hydrogen and carbon dioxide sourced from bio feedstocks and direct air capture (DAC).

By developing these novel approaches, Apollo addresses the critical challenge of securing sustainable feedstocks, paving the way for a more resilient SAF production model.

Green Hydrogen, DAC, and the Future of Aviation: Apollo's Vision for a Greener Tomorrow

The integration of liquid fuel production from green hydrogen and carbon dioxide obtained through DAC underscores Apollo’s commitment to overcoming the challenges associated with traditional bio feedstocks. Drawing upon extensive knowledge and experience in advancing Power to X projects, Apollo capitalises on well-established relationships with technology providers, positioning ourselves as experts in navigating the intricate landscape of environmentally impactful solutions.

This expertise not only propels Apollo towards the forefront of sustainable aviation innovation but also equips us to make compelling investment cases for financially demanding projects.
