Twelve has announced the launch of its 'Fuel for the Long Haul™' brand campaign introducing the company's first market offering, E-Jet® Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF).

Twelve's E-Jet® is an e-SAF, which is a fuel made from CO2, water, and renewable energy, resulting in up to 90% lower lifecycle emissions compared with conventional jet fuel. e-SAFs use up to 1000 times less water and 30 times less land than biofuels and other SAF options on the market.

Twelve has established itself as a pioneer in climate tech, working to build a fossil-free future through the science of carbon transformation and electrochemistry. With the imminent debut of E-Jet® SAF, the company's partnerships with leaders of industry, such as International Airlines Group (IAG) and British Airways, Alaska Airlines, Microsoft, Shopify, SABA, Boston Consulting Group, and Etihad Airways.

"We have a roadmap to achieve net zero by 2050 including a target to fly with 10% SAF by 2030," said Luis Gallego, CEO of IAG. "The shortage of sustainable fuel globally continues to be a problem for our industry although innovative companies like Twelve are an important part of the solution."

Global aviation will consume nearly 100 billion gallons of fuel this year alone due to the resurgence of tourism, emitting nearly 1 billion t of CO2. With an increased worldwide focus on reducing emissions, both the US and E.U. have set ambitious targets for SAF production and use via the landmark 2022 Inflation Reduction Act, follow-on state legislation, and the EU's own SAF mandate, signalling strong market demand and regulatory support for the industry. While SAF is critical to decarbonising aviation, E-Jet® leads the charge with up to 90% lower lifecycle emissions, as not all SAF delivers equal decarbonisation impact.

"Aviation sits at the centre of the global supply chain and holds the power to connect each of us with our customers and loved ones," said Nicholas Flanders, CEO and Co-Founder of Twelve. "Innovation, connection, and education are at the heart of the 'Fuel for the Long Haul' campaign and E-Jet fuel represents more than just a product. It symbolises our larger commitment to creating a fossil-free future made possible by the incredible potential of carbon transformation technology. This campaign is about celebrating our milestones and, more urgently, rallying industry to join us in this critical mission."
