What is sustainable aviation fuel and how is it made? Airlines that are members of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) have committed to achieving net-zero carbon emissions from their operations by 2050. They say SAF could help them cut their emissions by 65%.
The reason SAF could do this is that it is a type of biofuel, meaning it is made from plant or animal materials, rather than fossil fuels. BP makes SAF using cooking oil and animal waste fat. Other options include using agricultural and forestry waste, or municipal waste.
Isometric taps $25M to build a registry and science platform focused … Isometric will use the funding both to hire more scientists and technologists and to work on its products. Chief among them is a carbon removal registry to provide data to enterprises, looking to buy removal credits, to the various startups building that technology. Isometric claims it will be the first registry for “high-quality, long-duration” carbon removal credits.
More immediately, it is today launching what it refers to as a “science platform,” which will provide a way for carbon removal companies to publish and share their data with those interested in seeing it, and for Isometric’s team itself to do more firsthand, human vetting, too.
