Sustainable Aviation Fuel - all options compared

Excellent paper by Carbon Direct (, comparing a large number of technical options to create Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF). The graphs at the bottom give a cost and CO2 impact overview of all these options, with and without subsidies from the US Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). The winners are in the bottom-left corner: low cost and large CO2-negative impact. The winner (in the US, thanks to the IRA): processing municipal solid waste with a Fisher-Tropsch process and adding carbon capture and storage (CCS) to it. Thanks Carbon Direct for doing this excellent research and making it available for all of us for free! Download link:
