Greener skies on the horizon
At launch, Avelia became the largest SAF book-and-claim platform, offering around 1 million gallons of SAF. That’s enough to power almost *15,000 individual business traveler flights from London to New York.
The platform has successfully demonstrated the credibility of the book-and-claim model and the use of blockchain to ensure secured allocation of SAF’s environmental advantages to companies and airlines.
Now, with Avelia, airlines and business customers can simultaneously reduce emissions while ensuring transparency and accountability by avoiding issues such as double counting.
Alongside Avelia, Shell is continuing to make significant investments in the production and supply of SAF and has an ambition that SAF will account for 10% of its total aviation fuel sales by 2030. The demand signals driven by Avelia will help to reinforce this investment and can provide confidence to look at the scaling of supply further.
Thus Avelia may be key to helping airlines fulfill their commitment to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050—making our view from above all the more enjoyable.
