No volumes were given in the Jan. 17 announcements. But both airlines are targeting 10% SAF use by 2030 and exploring all SAF production pathways. JAL already has SAF offtake agreements in place with US HEFA producer Aemitis starting in 2024 and alcohol-to-jet producer Gevo starting in 2026. ANA has a HEFA SAF supply agreement with Finland’s Neste and is working with traditional jet fuel supplier Itochu to help develop new SAF supply chains and drive the commercialization of low carbon aviation fuels. The Raven SR SAF will initially be delivered in California.
