The sustainable aviation fuel that we will produce is a very special fuel. The ultra-low carbon intensity that our fuel will achieve makes it uniquely capable of fully decarbonizing otherwise very difficult-to-decarbonize applications, such as flying.

Achieving zero climate impact in commercial aviation is a particularly large challenge, as current regulations governing sustainable aviation fuels mandate at least a 50:50 blend of conventional jet fuel. This means that even lifecycle carbon neutral SAF can only achieve a 50% reduction in overall climate impact.

But our fuel will have a deeply negative carbon footprint! Negative enough in fact that using a gallon of our fuel is similar to un-burning an additional gallon of fuel from a lifecycle climate impact perspective.

The ICF project will also have a particularly large production capacity compared to most current SAF projects. Sufficient to supply all but the largest airports with enough fuel to achieve a zero impact target.

We believe that the best way to really demonstrate what advanced sustainable aviation fuel production is truly capable of is to create a real-world demonstration of something that many have thought is impossible: We would like to help create the world’s first zero climate impact major international airport!

No offsets. No short-term one-off events. We are talking full decarbonization of all flying out of a major city.

To that end, we have started an initiative to assemble a coalition of key stakeholders, including ports, regulators, cities, fuel distributors, and most importantly airlines, to attempt to make this concept a reality. The strong likelihood is that market forces will dictate that this demonstration occur in a Low Carbon Fuel Standard obligated market.

Executing on this concept will require a collaborative effort by multiple parties. If you are a major airport stakeholder and would like to take a look at the white paper we have assembled on this concept, please reach out to

At present, global demand for competitively priced Sustainable Aviation Fuels radically outpaces available supply. It is possible that we may ultimately end up distributing our fuels to a broader base depending on a variety of commercial factors. But we think this a goal worth striving for.
