    What are the benefits of flying with SAF?

    Using Sustainable Aviation Fuel reduces carbon emissions, protects the environment, and contributes to the sustainable future of aviation.

    Emissions reduction of up to 90%

    Due to its renewable nature, it generates significantly lower net emissions than fossil fuels.

    Immediate solution

    It is chemically analogous to traditional fossil fuels used in today's engines.

    No additional investment

    No modifications to existing engines or the distribution system are required.

    A partner in the energy transition

    It accelerates decarbonization in all sectors, especially those with complex electrification.

    Bring visibility to your commitment to sustainability

    It positions airlines as companies committed to sustainability.

    Increased safety

    It helps to diversify our energy sources and contributes to increasing energy independence and supply security in Spain and Europe.

    Boosting the circular economy

    It is a sustainable energy solution because it is produced from waste that would otherwise be discarded or end up in landfills.

    Our partnerships: together we transform aviation



    Thanks to Cepsa and AirEuropa, for the first time in Spain, two companies establish a regular supply of 2G SAF biofuel for a specific air route.



    Cepsa is the first company that offers SAF supply permanently at Spain's main airports: Madrid, Barcelona, Seville and Palma de Mallorca.


    Sebille, with b of biofuels

    In November 2022, for the first time in Spain, more than 200 flights took off from Seville with Cepsa's SAF.


    We will open a plant to produce SAF

    To guarantee supply, Cepsa will build a new 2G biofuels plant, the largest plant for the production of SAF in Southern Europe.

    Our partnerships: together we transform aviation


    Together with Volotea, we are accelerating the decarbonization of air transport by researching and producing SAF.


    Together with Wizz Air, we are driving SAF development and production to accelerate the decarbonization of air transport.


    We joined forces with Binter to develop and produce sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) from circular raw materials.


    Together with the Iberia Group, we promote sustainable biofuels to combat climate change.


    Our agreement with Air Nostrum will be a further boost to the decarbonization of air transport.


     This partnership will reduce aircraft emissions by up to 80% compared to conventional kerosene.


    This partnership is not only for air transportation, but also a joint search for cleaner alternatives for other modes of travel.


    Etihad and Cepsa are committed to developing biofuels to further reduce the carbon footprint of air transport.

    Answer your questions about SAF

    We answer all your questions about Sustainable Aviation Fuel.

    What is SAF?

    SAF stands for Sustainable Aviation Fuel, a new fuel produced from waste such as used cooking oil or animal fat, which reduces CO2 emissions by 80% compared to fossil fuels

    How is SAF produced?

    SAF is produced from waste and residue that has been pre-treated to remove impurities. These materials are refined through a process called hydrodeoxygenation, which removes oxygen, sulfur and nitrogen from these renewable raw materials.

    How does SAF reduce the environmental impact?

    Flying with SAF reduces CO2 emissions by 80% compared to fossil fuel, reduces the environmental impact of flying and boosts the circular economy.

    How can I fly with SAF?

    SAF is suitable for current aircraft engines and airport infrastructures and therefore does not require additional investments.

    Which airlines currently use Cepsa SAF?

    We currently have partnerships with Iberia, Binter, Vueling, Air Nostrum, TUI, Volotea, Wizz Air and Ethiad to accelerate the decarbonization of air transport through the research and production of SAF and to achieve net zero emissions in the aviation sector by 2050. Our partnerships also include the development of new energy alternatives, such as renewable hydrogen and electrification for airline ground fleets.
