A new deal between Neste and Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) reflects the sustainability ambitions of the aviation industry.

We have reported the many efforts being made by airlines – including Cathay Pacific, Qantas and KLM – to incorporate biofuels across their operations; and this latest collaboration, between Neste and DFW, should further improve the environmental performance of the industry.

The pair will work together to reduce emissions, with the adoption of MY Renewable Jet Fuel – made from residues and waste – one of the planned steps.

“We are happy to partner up with leaders such as DFW. Together, we are examining the solutions to reduce the emissions and carbon footprint of airlines operating from DFW. Besides the use of Neste MY Renewable Jet Fuel at DFW, we aim to work together in other solutions for decarbonising aviation. This includes for example renewable de-icing, paints and plastics,” said Kaisa Hietala, Executive Vice President of Renewable Products business area in Neste.

Moves like these support an industry working to achieve carbon-neutral growth from 2020 – and a 50% drop in CO2 emissions by the middle of the century.
