Emirates Inks Historic 300,000 Gallon SAF Deal with Shell Aviation

In a significant move towards sustainable aviation, Emirates has announced a landmark agreement with Shell Aviation for the supply of over 300,000 gallons of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) at its international hub in Dubai (DXB).

The Agreement

The deal, which marks a major step forward in Emirates' environmental strategy, will see Shell Aviation supply over 300,000 gallons of blended SAF to Emirates for use at its Dubai hub. This is the first time that SAF will be supplied through the DXB airport fueling system.


The Impact

The introduction of SAF at DXB is a significant milestone for the aviation industry in the UAE. The use of SAF can help reduce carbon emissions, making it a key component in the aviation industry's efforts to combat climate change. 

Tracking and Transparency

As part of the agreement, Emirates will track SAF delivery and its use data through Avelia, one of the world’s first blockchain-powered SAF solutions. Avelia is powered by Shell Aviation and Accenture, with Energy Web support and American Express Global business travel. This platform will provide transparency and traceability in the supply and use of SAF.


Looking Ahead

The first SAF delivery under the agreement is expected to commence before the end of the year. This collaboration is hoped to develop further to provide an ongoing future supply of SAF in Dubai, as there are currently no production facilities for SAF in the UAE.

This agreement between Emirates and Shell Aviation represents a significant step towards sustainable aviation. It underscores Emirates' commitment to reducing emissions and sets a precedent for other airlines and hubs to follow. As more airlines embrace SAF, we can look forward to a future where air travel aligns more closely with global sustainability goals.
