Europe shifting to clean aviation fuel

European airports are set to ramp up the availability of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), thanks to a new deal struck between Neste and Air bp. Neste’s SAF is made using 100% renewable waste and residue materials. And over the remainder of this year – and through 2021, the agreement will result in the supply of five times more SAF to European airports than in 2019. A fuel that over its lifecycle slashes up to 80% of greenhouse gas emissions compared to traditional jet fuel.

“The COVID-19 pandemic and its economic implications have not changed our ambition. We remain fully committed to combating climate change by providing tangible, immediately available solutions for reducing the greenhouse gas emissions of flying in cooperation with our partners. The use of sustainable aviation fuel will play a significant role in the industry’s ongoing efforts in making air transportation fit for the climate and environmental challenges it is facing. We are looking forward to continuing our close collaboration with Air bp and jointly contributing to a more sustainable aviation”, says Thorsten Lange, Executive Vice President, Renewable Aviation at Neste. 

Air bp will shortly begin delivering more of Neste’s SAF, with Stockholm and Oslo airports among the selected hubs due to receive supplies within the coming weeks.
