The aviation (air transport) is responsible for over 2% of global CO2 emissions representing approximately 13% of total emissions in whole transport sector, and 99% of them are due to fuel combination. Being environmental sus-tainability an increasing priority at global scale, national and international institu-tions have adopted several strategies destined to air transport development. Their final aim is to improve fuel efficiency reducing, at the same time, global emis-sions by at least 50% by 2050 (compared to 2005 data). In such context, one of the main actions related to air transport is the use of sustainable bio-jet fuels. The aim of the present paper is the analysis of a Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) obtained from inedible oil seed of a nicotine and GMO-free tobacco plant called “Solaris”, tested and patented by an Italian company. This analysis will investigate its economic and environmental potential in an integrated bio-mass production system and its related opportunities of development.
