Flying with 100% SAF Reduces Non-CO2 Emissions Significantly

A study conducted during flights of the Airbus A350 aircraft using 100% Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) has found significant reductions in non-CO2 emissions.

The research was carried out jointly by Airbus, Rolls-Royce, the German Aerospace Center (DLR), and Neste, with a DLR aircraft following the Airbus A350 to measure the impact of its emissions.

Compared to the standard jet A-1 fuel, there was a significant decrease in soot particles emission and the formation of ice crystals in contrails. This could lead to a significant reduction in global warming caused by airplane contrails. Simulations estimated that using 100% SAF could reduce the climate impact of airplane contrails by 26%.
