An aviation biofuel or bio-jet-fuel or bio-aviation fuel (BAF) is a biofuel used to power aircraft and is said to be a sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). The International Air Transport Association (IATA) considers it to be one of the key elements to reduce the carbon footprint within the environmental impact of aviation. Aviation biofuel could help decarbonize medium- and long-haul air travel. Air travel creates jobs worldwide and stimulates the economy. Unfortunately, it is also responsible for 2 to 3% of CO2 emissions worldwide. That is why KLM actively works towards reducing these emissions. A few of the steps KLM takes are fleet renewal, the use of lightweight material on board, fuel-efficient operations and investment in biofuel. The use of sustainable biofuel can lead up to an.
