Queensland is leading the way in establishing a viable Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) industry to fuel aircraft and contribute to decarbonisation targets for the state and Australia. SAF is one of the strongest levers available to airlines to reduce emissions and can be used in today’s aircraft engines and fuel delivery systems with no required modifications.
Jet Zero, with the support of the Queensland Government, Qantas, Airbus and LanzaJet’s Alcohol-To-Jet conversion technology, is aiming to develop a refinery that will use agricultural by-products
to make SAF.
When built, the facility will produce up to 100 million litres of SAF annually and transform ethanol from agricultural waste into fuel for use in the domestic and international aviation marketplace.
In the short term Jet Zero Australia will be completing feasibility studies on a site in Queensland ahead of construction targeted for late 2024.
