Gevo welcomes India’s first commercial flight using SAF

May 24, 2023 |

In Colorado, Gevo celebrated India’s first commercial passenger flight using an indigenously produced Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) blend.

AirAsia India flight i5-767, powered by a blend of indigenous SAF supplied by Indian Oil Corporation Ltd. (IOCL) in partnership with Praj Industries, had successfully completed the journey between Pune and New Delhi.

The SAF sourced for this initiative by Praj Industries was made possible through a partnership with Gevo using Gevo’s Alcohol-to-Jet (ATJ) technology to produce SAF using bio-based feedstock. Praj Industries produced SAF samples at its state-of-the-art R&D facility, Praj Matrix.

Patrick Gruber, CEO of Gevo, said” “This historic achievement for the country of India of flying with carbohydrate based alcohol to jet SAF showcases the incredible potential of utilizing locally sourced feedstock. It highlights the critical role of the farming community in India’s journey towards energy independence and sustainable growth.”
