The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) is planning to conduct a trial on the use of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at Changi Airport (SIN) next year.

This pilot project is projected to continue for around 12 months.

CAAS has partnered with Singapore Airlines (SIA) and investment firm Temasek to pilot the green fuel.

A Request for Proposal was launched to invite a few SAF producers and fuel suppliers to devise plans for the supply of blended SAF to Changi Airport.

A study was previously carried out by the Singapore Government, along with other organisations, to evaluate the operational and commercial feasibility of utilising SAF at Changi Airport.

CAAS director-general Han Kok Juan said: “Sustainability will be a key priority of the aviation sector as it recovers from the Covid-19 pandemic and SAF will be a critical enabler in the sector’s decarbonisation efforts.

“The pilot, which will incorporate the blending of neat SAF in local facilities, certification of blended SAF and delivery to Changi Airport, is a significant step to operationally validate SAF integration options in Singapore. It will provide insights on end-to-end cost components, potential pricing structures for cost recovery and support future policy considerations for SAF deployment.”

At the sidelines of the 26th Conference of Parties (COP26) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the SAF Policy Toolkit has also been introduced.

This toolkit has been framed by the World Economic Forum (WEF) Clean Skies for Tomorrow SAF Ambassadors Group, which includes Singapore as a member.

Other governments taking part are Costa Rica, the Netherlands, Kenya, the UAE and the UK.

The toolkit has several options to enable global policymakers to improve the supply of SAF and promote its demand.

SAF Ambassadors Group consists of many governments, jointly working for the development of SAF policy proposals to support the deployment of SAF.

Recently, Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) in the US received its first delivery of SAF as part of a joint circular economy project in the aviation industry.
