Delta, Chevron, Google Partner on Sustainable Aviation Fuel Development

Chevron, Delta Airlines and Google announced Sept. 7 a new partnership with a goal to increase industry use of sustainable aviation fuel.

The group agreed to track sustainable aviation fuel test batch emissions data using cloud-based technology. Chevron will produce the fuel test batch at its El Segundo Refinery using biofeedstocks and sell the fuel to Delta at its LAX hub. Meanwhile, both will share the results with Google Cloud for analysis.

“As aviation continues to define a more sustainable future, understanding the environmental impacts of our operations will be paramount as we look to mitigate climate change,” Amelia DeLuca, Delta’s managing director of sustainability, said in a statement. “On top of being the first carbon neutral airline on a global basis, we’ve pledged to replace 10 percent of our jet fuel with SAF by 2030. This partnership has the potential to help us achieve that goal while providing important data and analytics that demonstrate the environmental integrity of our commitment.”

The ultimate goal of the project will be to increase transparency and improve reporting of sustainable aviation fuel emissions to support future use of low-intensity fuels.
