Ensure your sustainable aviation fuel meets the highest standards with our state-of-the-art technology

Our facilities are home to an extensive range of ASTM-approved testing and analytical equipment, so you can be sure that your fuel will meet international sustainable aviation standards.

As a national centre of excellence, we will work with you to assess and develop the fuels of the future.


We also work in combination with the neighbouring Translational Energy Research Centre (TERC) to produce sustainable aviation fuels that can be tested at SAF-IC.

SAF-IC has access to an APU testing rig, which is housed at the neighbouring Translational Energy Research Centre (TERC).

This very popular engine has passed the 100 million hours of service milestone. It is used on both Boeing B737 family and Airbus A320.
The APU rig enables testing of emissions, PM size, density and number distribution as well as gaseous emissions, combustion acoustics and other performance parameters. Some projects may also be able to carry out diagnostics inside the combustor.

For the full range of capabilities and testing parameters the APU can be used to investigate, please click here.
