  1. 100% Neat SAF Testing On Phenom 300E; Praetor 600 Successfully Concludes
    Embraer has been testing 100% neat Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) use on the Phenom 300E and the Praetor 600 and announced that those tests have now been concluded. Most modern aircraft can take a blend of SAF and conventional fuel but not 100% pure SAF. The powerplants on the next business jet models are being made to take 100% SAF use. However, it is good news to know that more existing powerplants like those powering the Praetor 600 and Phenom 300E can take advantage of this bridge fuel.
  2. The tests, with one engine running on 100% SAF, were performed at Embraer’s Melbourne facility and provided significant insight into systems’ performance when utilizing blends up to 100% SAF, which was provided by World Fuel. The tests had collaboration of the engine and fuel system suppliers Honeywell Aerospace, Parker, Pratt & Whitney Canada and Safran.
  3. "We are proud to have successfully flown the Phenom 300E and Praetor 600 on 100% neat SAF, an important step as our operators are increasingly interested in adopting this fuel," said Michael Amalfitano, Embraer Executive Jets President and CEO. "This achievement is an important milestone in our journey towards net-zero emissions by 2050 and demonstrates our commitment to sustainability, our customers and our stakeholders." Currently, all Embraer aircraft are approved to use a blend of up to 50% of SAF mixed with conventional Jet Fuel, based on ASTM International specifications. However, possible future specifications allowing for fuels containing up to 100% SAF can maximize the potential for reducing emissions by utilizing sustainable, non-fossil-based sources. Embraer has the ambitious goal of being net-zero by 2040 and to that end they will continue to work on electrification, hybrid-electric, and hydrogen as forms of propulsion going forward.
