Delta invests $2 million for study of potential facility to produce SAF from forest floor debris
As part of its ongoing commitment to sustainability, Delta Air Lines is investing $2 million to partner with Northwest Advanced Bio-fuels, LLC for the feasibility study of a biofuel production facility to produce SAF and other biofuel products. The SAF, expected to be produced in a facility in Washington State, could be used in Delta operations at stations in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco and Los Angeles. NWABF's project would utilize wood residue deposits and wood slash lying on forest floors to produce the biofuel, which would qualify under an ASTM-approved carbon-reducing pathway. NWABF plans first delivery of the fuel by the end of 2023.
