    What are the benefits of flying with SAF?

    With Sustainable Aviation Fuel we can keep flying, while reducing our environmental impact.

    Emissions reduction of up to 90%

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

    Boosts the circular economy

    It is produced from organic waste, such as used cooking oils, agricultural, or livestock waste.

    Accelerates the energy transition

    It can be implemented immediately and is just as safe as traditional fossil fuels.

    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 up to 90% compared to traditional fossil fuels throughout the entire lifecycle.

    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 up to 90% throughout the entire lifecycle 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.
