Tata group airlines sign MOU for sustainable aviation fuel

According to the various media reports, airlines belonging to the Tata group including Air India, Air Asia India and Vistara (Tata SIA Airlines) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Thursday with the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research, Indian Institute of Petroleum to work on the use of sustainable aviation fuels (SAF).

A spokesperson of Air India said that the MoU focuses on exploring Single Reactor HEFA (fuels) Technology for Drop-in liquid Sustainable Aviation and Automotive Fuel (DILSAAF). The MoU will provide a platform for the signatories to work together on areas related to sustainable aviation, he said.

SAF is prepared using sustainable resources like forestry and agricultural waste and used cooking oil and is blended with fossil jet fuel to reduce emissions.

This will help in reducing the use of petroleum-based fuel for aviation which is affecting greenhouse gas and increasing carbon emissions.

The Tata Group aims to achieve a net zero carbon emission target by 2045.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) aims to reduce emission targets by the adoption of SAF to reduce 65% of emissions.
