Sustainability solutions provider Azzera has added an industry-first sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) management module to its CELESTE B2B Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform. The new SAF Inventory Management and Tracking functionality enables aircraft operators to effortlessly manage and track their SAF uplift and assess its contribution to emissions reduction. With the SAF data stored in a single module, CELESTE users can optimize the system to increase visibility around their use of SAF as the module tracks where the SAF is purchased, how much is uplifted, and which routes were flown. In addition, the system also facilitates SAF book and claim transactions for business aviation clients, aggregates SAF demand and provides SAF certificates directly to the operator on their platform interface. The intuitive system is designed to reduce calculation errors and remove complexity for compliance managers.

The digital platform removes burdensome data handling tasks from flight departments by integrating with flight scheduling software to access and process data for real-time emissions calculations. The automation minimizes manual data handling, reduces errors and saves time. To simplify the calculations, emissions are segregated by carbon compliance market, including the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA), regional emissions trading systems (ETS), the EU ETS, UK ETS, and CH ETS. Azzera also employs scientific methodology to evaluate the real climate impact of projects, using the Azzera Impact Score. Users can subsequently buy carbon credits through the digital platform to help them easily manage and mitigate carbon emissions.

Each carbon credit is equivalent to one ton of carbon emissions that are either prevented from entering or removed from the atmosphere. Purchased credits are ‘retired’ against unavoidable emissions.
