Overall industry summary:Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) activity SAF are key for meeting industry’s commitments Delivers net GHG reductions of 65-100%, other enviro services Aviation enterprise aligned; 26B gpy US & 90B GPY worldwide opt’y CAAFI and others (e.g. AIREG) are working to foster, catalyze, enable,facilitate, participate Segment knows how to make it; Activities from FRL 1 to 9 Pathway identified for fully synthetic (50% max blend today) First facilities on-line, producing SAF at various run-rates Commercial agreements being pursued, fostered by policy and otherunique approaches Making progress, but still significant challenges – onlymodest production: focus on enabling commercial viability Potential for acceleration a function of engagement, firstfacilities’ success replication, additional technologies24 October 20192

IATA Recommitment to SAF at 75th AGM02Jun’19 Resolution PronouncementRenewed emphasis on SAF in Resolution ENCOURAGES all ICAO Member States to demonstrate climate andaviation leadership; URGES all IATA members to take part in the long-term energytransition of air transport towards sustainable aviation fuels; Theseare key to achieving the industry’s 2050 commitment. EMPHASIZING that IATA member airlines have consistentlyconsidered that meeting aviation’s climate goals relies not only onindustry action but is also subject to governments incentivizingtechnological research and development for airframes and enginesand the commercial development of sustainable aviation fuels, More to follow from Lufthansa and JetBlue Chair IATA appointmentsfor the next 2 years.Similar statement followed from Aerospace Industries Association.24 October 201911

SAJF Progress - technical SAJF are becoming increasingly technically viable Aviation now knows we can utilize numerous productionpathways (5 approved, others pending) Enabling use of all major sustainable feedstocks (lipids, sugars,lignocellulose, H&C slip-streams) Following blending, fuel is drop-in, indistinguishable from petro Some future pathways will produce blending components thatwill need less, or zero, blending Expanding exploration of renewable crude with refiners Significant “pipeline” of new production pathways Continuing streamlining of qualification – time, , methods24 October 201919

SAF progress - commercial The path to SAF commercialization has perhaps commenced In production; in construction; in final design; in conceptualization Some will be readily replicable May be able to leverage existing refineries, as well as alcohol and renewablediesel production facilities The primary impediments to rapid growth: A production cost delta versus petroleum-jet, and; Competition from diesel (road and maritime), and; A policy environment that may not close cost delta, creates marketdistortions, and continues to foster uncertainty Given a policy framework that addresses the above, SAF is perhapson the cusp of rapid expansion and replication Many members of entire supply-chains are working to enable such(academia, national labs, entrepreneurs, big oil, fuel suppliers, pipelinecompanies, farmers and foresters, facilitators, aviation partners)

Summary Thank you for your interest in SAF-range molecules!! Interestfrom the industry is real. Multiple feedstock sources / targeted conversion technologies Please continue to focus on TEA and LCA driven technologyexplorations – the industry needs affordable, low-CI jetblending components If you are working in the gasoline/diesel space – you areworking in the SAF space – please highlight SAF and itsfocused market-pull Less certainty over the life of the bio-refinery for gasoline anddiesel (targeted at road transport or shipping) demand due likelytechnology shifts – not the same for aviation.24 October 201934

In some instances it may be more appropriate to report separately KPIs for each business segment if the process of aggregation renders the output meaningless. For example it is clearly more informative to report a retail business segment separately rather than combining it with a personal fi nancial services segment .
