Case study

Microbial activity comparison between contaminated sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and conventional jet fuel using 2nd Generation ATP® technology

The use of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) in commercial aviation can reduce CO2 emissions by up to 80 per cent, playing an important role in the IATA goal of achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

As the demand for SAF grows, production volumes will continue to increase for SAF which will require clean storage to maintain product quality and infrastructure.

Previous studies have investigated microbial contamination in Jet A-1 fuel storage environments, however, microbial contamination research in SAF is still in its infancy. In this laboratory study, the microbial community activity of contaminated SAF and Jet A-1 were monitored using BugCount® Fuel 2nd Generation ATP® technology.
