Oneworld members Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Finnair, Iberia, Japan Airlines and Qatar Airways will uplift the fuel — a blend of 40% SAF and 60% fossil jet — at San Francisco airport over seven years from 2024. Aemetis is currently building its first Carbon Zero ATJ plant in Riverbank, California. The facility will use waste orchard and forest wood to produce cellulosic hydrogen, which is then combined with wastes and non-edible sustainable oils and zero carbon intensity hydroelectric electricity to produce SAF offering up to a 100% carbon saving compared to fossil jet. Based in California, Aemetis makes renewable natural gas, renewable fuels and biochemicals. It has already completed Phase 1 and is expanding a California biogas digester network and pipeline system to convert dairy waste gas into Renewable Natural Gas. Aemetis operates a 65 million gallon/yr ethanol production facility in California’s Central Valley near Modesto and a 50 million gallons/yr biodiesel plant in India.
