Until eventually now, Kuehne+Nagel and Lufthansa Cargo have utilised bio SAF to reduce the carbon footprint of air freight. While bio SAF is made from biomass (waste merchandise and feedstocks with very low carbon content), the primary electrical power resource and feedstocks for the output of artificial SAF are renewable electrical power, water and carbon dioxide (CO2). Synthetic SAF is considered the long‐term option for the field as it can be manufactured devoid of availability restrictions, avoiding biomass offer limitations, and can cut down emissions up to 100%.
