Growing the UK Sustainable Aviation Fuel Industry

Innovate UK KTN has conducted an analysis to support the growth of the UK’s sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) industry and support the ambitions of the Jet Zero Council. This interactive analysis offers insight into the feedstock and technology pathways being utilised, the chemical products and the scale of production (TRL), to inform your supply chain development and showcase the UK’s potential in SAF.

Analysis to help build the UK SAF supply chain

Innovate UK KTN is analysing the UK SAF potential by assessing the UK chemical production landscape. Once we understand what chemicals are being produced and what feedstock and technology is utilised, we then use that intelligence to broker connections key to building the SAF supply chain.

This interactive analysis offers you insight into the feedstock and technology pathways being utilised by UK companies, their chemical products and scale of their production (TRL) to inform your project development. It is an evolving piece of work, and we invite you to request inclusion of your company in the analysis if you:

  • Are utilising an alternative feedstock
  • Developing a technology/process
  • Produce a sustainable chemical suitable to be fed into a SAF process, or
  • Produce SAF

Please complete this survey to get your company added to the map or to add new details to an existing entry. If you would like to find out more or discuss the analysis with us please contact SAFenquiries@ktn-uk.org.

This analysis is kindly sponsored by Innovate UK.
