Berita 24 English - Exxon Mobil Corp. announced on Thursday that, as part of a one-year pilot programme to test the new fuel for aeroplanes, it had delivered the first sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) cargo to Changi Airport.

According to a statement from ExxonMobil, the cargo contains a mixture of fossil-based refined jet fuel from the company's Singapore integrated refining and petrochemical complex and SAF provided by Neste Oil.

The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore, Singapore Airlines, and Temasek started a trial programme in February and chose the oil company as the fuel supplier. Starting this month, the gasoline was to be transported from Changi Airport to Singapore Airlines and Scoot flights.

ExxonMobil intends to offer SAF and other low-emission fuels in excess of 40,000 barrels per day by 2025 and 200,000 barrels per day by 2030.

As decarbonization initiatives in the transportation sectors, including aviation, marine, and heavy-duty trucks, intensify, the demand for lower-emission fuels is anticipated to rise.
