Sustainable Aviation Fuel

General Index sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) price data provides insight into the expanding North West Europe renewables production sector.

GENERAL INDEX EXPERTISE

General Index sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production cost indexes reflect drop-in aviation fuel blending component material derived from lipid feedstocks such as plant or algae oils, tallow, or waste greases, and which meets the ASTM D7566 technical certification standard.

Prices are calculated using production cost-based models, incorporating actual renewable and energy feedstocks supplied to the HEFA-SPK (Hydrotreated Esters and Fatty Acids-Synthesized Paraffinic Kerosene) pathway.

The cost of hydroprocessing is based on proprietary General Index hydrogen prices.

The data is published daily (subject to the General Index holiday calendar) and made available to its subscribers via direct data feeds and emails to its customers.

All prices are in USD/MT and normalised via internal calculations to reflect market vale at close (1630 London).

Model A Max SAF

These indexes reflect a minimum cost price for sustainable aviation fuel produced in North West Europe via the HEFA pathway. The refinery scenario modelled is "Max Jet". Total renewable product yield is 89% (65% SAF, 14% Bio-Naphtha, 5% HVO, 5% Bio-LPG). It assumes a facility in Rotterdam with 2.7mn MT/annum total renewable product capacity.

Model A 50:50 SAF/HVO

These indexes reflect a minimum cost price for sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) produced in North West Europe via the HEFA pathway. The refinery scenario modelled is "50:50". Total renewable product yield is 90% (40% SAF, 40% HVO, 5% Bio-Naphtha, and 5% Bio-LPG). It assumes a facility in Rotterdam with 2.7 mn MT/annum total renewable product capacity.
