Planes chart renewable flight path

Global Bioenergies is accelerating its plans to provide biofuels suitable for the aviation industry.

It is partnering with sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) pioneer, SkyNRG, to fast-track the convertion of isobutene produced by Global Bioenergies from renewable energies into a jet fuel blend that meets industry standards. And there is a growing demand, as the International Air transport Association (IATA) wants one billion passengers taking flights powered by a percentage of sustainable aviation fuel by 2025.

 

“We look forward to working together on aviation industry approval of our approach with our partner SkyNRG. Interest for sustainable aviation fuel is currently rising in Europe and all around the world because it is an essential solution to decarbonise this industry. We expect that initiatives to be taken by governments will soon widely foster the market uptake of sustainable aviation fuel,” said Bernard Chaud, Chief Industrial Strategy Officer at Global Bioenergies.

 

The industry is listening. Qantas, Cathay Pacific, KLM and Air Canada have all featured on these pages for their efforts to begin using a percentage of sustainable fuel. With renewable fuel giant Neste having recently launching a website to urge the aviation industry to learn about, and pursue, a climate-friendly future.
