Sasol, Topsoe’s Zaffra aims to decarbonise aviation


A new joint venture launched by global chemicals and energy company Sasol in partnership with low carbon technologies firm Topsoe promises to accelerate the development and delivery of sustainable aviation fuels (SAF).

The International Energy Agency (IEA) calculates that the aviation industry accounts for around 2% of global energy-related CO2 emissions, having grown faster in recent decades than rail, road or shipping.

It is estimated that SAF could deliver around 65% of the reduction in emissions needed by aviation to reach Net Zero CO2 emissions by 2050.
