Airbus and TotalEnergies Sign a Strategic Partnership in Sustainable Aviation Fuel

Airbus and TotalEnergies SE from France have signed a strategic partnership to meet the challenges of aviation decarbonization with sustainable aviation fuel.

In line with the objective of achieving net carbon neutrality of aviation by 2050, this partnership aims to contribute to the reduction of the sector’s CO2 emissions, in which Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) play a key role. SAF supplied by TotalEnergies can reduce up to 90% CO2 emissions over lifecycle compared to their fossil fuel equivalent.

TotalEnergies will supply Airbus with sustainable aviation fuel for more than half of its needs in Europe.

A research and innovation programme aimed at developing 100% sustainable fuels, tailored to the design of current and future aircraft. The impact of the composition of sustainable aviation fuels on the reduction of CO2 emissions and non-CO2 effects, such as contrails, will also be studied.
