Directional Aviation made a financial investment in clean tech developer and green crude producer Alder Fuels, with the intent of using technology to document the production life cycle and industry adoption of low-carbon sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). That action serves to increase transparency around the production of SAF and offer robust documentation for compliance with regulatory programs; environment, social, and governance targets; and carbon reduction milestones in aviation, Directional Aviation said.

“Our investment in Alder Fuels and partnership on advancing the use of digital technology to document SAF use is an example of private aviation leading the way on sustainability commitments and identifying solutions to reduce carbon emissions that aid the entire aviation industry,” said Directional Aviation principal Kenn Ricci.

Regenerative grasses, forest residues, and agricultural waste are among the sustainable biomass Alder Fuels uses to develop low-carbon to carbon-negative green crude, which can be converted to SAF through existing bio and petroleum refineries.
