Alder Fuels Targets Rapid Scale-Up of SAF From 'Green Crude'

Scalability and feedstock constraints pose huge challenges for commercializing sustainable aviation fuels (SAF). Clean tech firm Alder Fuels has a strategy designed to overcome those hurdles. Its technology uses the advanced pyrolysis pathway to convert low-carbon biomass into “green crude” that can be processed into SAF by conventional oil refineries using existing infrastructure. Founded less than one year ago by its CEO Bryan Sherbacow, the Washington, DC-based company has an ambitious goal to produce 1 billion gallons of SAF in the US by 2030 — one-third of the target in the Biden administration’s SAF Grand Challenge to spur development.
