United, Honeywell Invest in New Clean Tech Venture from Alder Fuels, Powering Biggest Sustainable Fuel Agreement in Aviation History

Thursday, September 9, 2021 - 12:00pm

CHICAGO and DES PLAINES, Ill., Sept. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- United and Honeywell today announced a joint multimillion-dollar investment in Alder Fuels – a cleantech company that is pioneering first-of-its-kind technologies for producing sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at scale by converting abundant biomass, such as forest and crop waste, into sustainable low-carbon, drop-in replacement crude oil that can be used to produce aviation fuel. When used together across the fuel lifecycle, the Alder technologies, coupled with Honeywell's Ecofining™ process, could have the ability to produce a carbon-negative fuel at spec with today's jet fuel. The goal of the technologies is to produce fuel that is a 100% drop-in replacement for petroleum jet fuel.

Key Points: 
  • The goal of the technologies is to produce fuel that is a 100% drop-in replacement for petroleum jet fuel.
  • As part of the agreement, United is committing to purchase 1.5 billion gallons of SAF from Alder when produced to United's requirements.
  • "United has come further than any other airline making sustainable travel a reality by using SAF to power flights.
  • Alder's technology and demand for its fuel from the aviation industry create a large new market for biomass from regenerative practices.
