The goal is to improve the logistics chain and make the use of SAF more efficient and cost-effective. Complete fuel chain certification will be obtained. A best practise guide for SAF handling and logistics will be developed.
SAF uptake processes and smart use of SAF should be improved. A digital platform will assess the performance of new SAF candidates (DLR SimFuel). A digital twin will be developed to be a digital record of the whole value chain of the specific fuel for tracing eg. fuel properties.
Economic models will demonstrate the cost benefit of SAF. Furthermore, a novel methodology for reporting and accounting of SAF will be developed.
Best practice sustainability principles and targets are applied to the development. The full SAF supply chain will be assessed using the RSB certification and requirements of the EC Renewable Energy Directive II (RED II) and ICAO CORSIA. Environmental benefits will be quantified.
