Block Aero Technologies and Verifavia Join Forces to Drive SAF Innovation

June 16, 2023

Block Aero Technologies and Verifavia SAS are pleased to announce the signing of an MoU for collaboration on sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) initiatives and supply chain solutions. The partnership aims to leverage the expertise of both companies in the aerospace and aviation industry to drive sustainability and establish best practices for carbon insetting. In contrast to carbon offsetting, insetting directly addresses emissions reductions from within the organization’s supply chain.

The Block Aero platform introduces enterprise-grade software applications with document auditing and digital asset management capabilities. Verifavia provides global independent environmental verification, certification and auditing services for airlines, airports and maritime transport. Together both organizations are poised to develop a best-in-class digital carbon accounting solution.

The results of the collaboration will be presented to hundreds of airlines and fuel supply chain stakeholders at the upcoming Aviation Carbon conference to be held in London on 6-7 November.

Nicolas Duchêne, President of Verifavia, said, “Our extensive experience in using blockchain technology to enhance certificate authenticity and integrity has been instrumental for many years. Through our strong partnership with Block Aero, we are shaping a greener and more sustainable future for the aerospace industry. Together, we are revolutionizing processes with transparency, accuracy, and accountability at their core. By combining blockchain and SAF, we are driving efficiency, we are redefining standards and setting new benchmarks for excellence.”

Todd Siena, Founder & CEO of Block Aero Technologies, added, “We are excited to collaborate with Verifavia, a leader in sustainable certification schemes, with more jurisdictions covered under the CORSIA framework than any other accredited verification body. Together, we can accelerate the adoption of sustainable aviation fuel and enhance the transparency and traceability of carbon insetting practices.”
