Whilst HEFA SAFs are currently the least expensive SAFs, it will likely be Power-to-Liquid SAFs which become the most economically viable in the long-term as renewable energy prices fall. They also have the lowest environmental footprint among key SAF pathways
  7. HVO/HEFA Overview. Hydrotreated vegetable oils (HVO) commonly referred to as renewable diesel and hydroprocessed esters and fatty acids (HEFA) are produced via hydroprocessing of oils and fats. Hydroprocessing is an alternative process to esterification to produce diesel from biomass

This specification governs the properties of RJF and SAF similar to ASTM D1655 for Jet A and A1. The ASTM D7566 specification has been developed over many years following a strict testing regime and approval process deemed to be safe for use in commercial aviation. Synthetic Paraffinic Kerosene or the HEFA-SPK process. In this process. At present, SAF must be blended with conventional jet fuel (up to 50%). Some less environmentally favourable components of conventional jet fuel (e.g. sulphur) allow seals to swell in engines and prevent fuel leaks. Newer engines do not have this concern, and SAF has been performance tested at 100% in military aircraft Producing HEFA-SAF is also more expensive than producing HEFA diesel, as an additional catalytic cracking step is required to produce the hydrocarbons suitable for aviation fuel. Vardon explained that while it is not easy to compare the cost effectiveness of HEFA-SAF to VFA-SAF as HEFA is already a commercially deployed technology, VFAs can be. Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) is a clean substitute for fossil jet fuels. Rather than being refined from petroleum, SAF is produced from sustainable resources such as waste oils from a biological origin, agri residues, or non-fossil CO 2.. SAF is a so-called drop-in fuel, which means that it can be blended with fossil jet fuel and that the blended fuel requires no special infrastructure or.

HVO / HEFA - ETIP Bioenerg

As HEFA is currently the only SAF production technology at commercial scale, it is likely to dominate global SAF production capacity over the next decade or so. However, production of HEFA relies on the use of oils and fats as feedstock, and concerns around the sustainability of oil crops means that HEFA production is likely to be increasingly. An aviation biofuel or bio-jet-fuel or bio-aviation fuel (BAF) is a biofuel used to power aircraft and is said to be a sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). The International Air Transport Association (IATA) considers it to be one of the key elements to reduce the carbon footprint within the environmental impact of aviation. Aviation biofuel could help decarbonize medium- and long-haul air travel. The report carries out a techno-economic assessment (TEA) of a fictitious HEFA-based SAF refinery located in Europe and working with a scale of 500,000 metric tons of waste feedstock as input over a time span of 25 years. Each ton of fuel produced has an assumed policy value of 554 EUR based on the average value of 'Renewable Fuel Units. ASTM approves 7th annex to D7566 sustainable jet fuel specification: HC-HEFA. 14 May 2020. ASTM International has approved and published a seventh annex to D7566, the sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) specification, with support from the Commercial Aviation Alternative Fuels Initiative (CAAFI). In February 2020, ASTM International approved and. Subsidising the consumption of SAF envisaged in the SDS scenario in 2025, around 5% of total aviation jet fuel demand, would require about $6.5 billion of subsidy (based on closing a cost premium of USD 0.35 litre between HEFA-SPK and fossil jet kerosene at USD 70/bbl oil prices)

Both the flight and the ground tests will compare emissions from the use of 100% SAF produced with HEFA (hydroprocessed esters and fatty acids) technology against those from fossil kerosene and low-sulphur fossil kerosene. The SAF will be provided by Neste, a leading worldwide supplier of sustainable aviation fuel SAF provides a reduced carbon footprint while adhering to the strict requirements that all aviation fuel must meet as laid out in the ASTM International (ASTM) D7566 standard. A variety (HEFA or HE-FA-SPK): The HEFA pathway uses fatty feedstocks such as vegeta-ble oils or waste fats, which first undergo a deoxygenation reaction. Although a scenario in which the EU supplies its own SAF with EU -based production capacity is possible, it is more likely SAF imports are needed to meet the mandated volumes towards 2030. In any case, there will be a heavy reliance on waste oils as feedstock and both the HEFA and co-processing technology pathways Without any targeted support for more challenging pathways, the actual SAF potential could be closer to 1.9%, primarily drawn from easier-to-convert HEFA fuels. Expanding SAF beyond today's production levels will require substantial financial incentives to overcome the economic and technical barriers that have thus far kept production low.

The ASCENT HEFA to SAF TEA purchases feedstock (oil) at $1.03 per kg. The Economic analysis demonstrates that the pennycress oil could be available at that price or lower. We found the value ranges from $0.80 to 1.09 per kg depending on whether the crush facility paid $0.081 to $0.108 per pound RSB worked with Agroicone to examine the availability of residues and strategic locations for SAF production and consumption in Brazil. Five residual feedstocks were combined in seven different pathways (Fischer-Tropsch, Alcohol-to-Jet, HEFA) for SAF production. All pathways were for ASTM-approved drop-in fuels to be used with fossil kerosene. This is the 5th high-blend SAF flight research project conducted by the NRC over the last decade, starting with 100% biofuel in 2012. More recently, since 2017 the NRC has measured high-blend SAF contrails and emissions from 92% and 100% alcohol-to-jet conversion fuel and 100% HEFA fuel This technology of making SAF from ethanol is new and is on top of some other already existing platforms. Currently, the most common way of producing SAF is through a Hydrocarbons, Esters and Fatty Acids (HEFA) process, which refines vegetable oils, waste oils, or fats into SAF through hydrogenation
