The effectiveness of Neste MY Renewable Jet Fuel in reducing black carbon emissions has been recognised with a prestigious award.

Renewable fuel producer Neste pops up regularly on these pages for the impact its products are having in sustainably powering the transformation of industries worldwide. In the case of air travel, which is predicted to double over next 20 years, it is vital the industry quickly finds way to slash emissions; and research from NASA shows renewable fuel has the potential to cut ‘particulate emissions’ by up to 70% from aircraft engines.

“We are very pleased with this recognition for Neste MY Renewable Jet Fuel and its role in reducing black carbon emissions. Air traffic is a significant source of black carbon emissions, which is also the fastest growing mode of transportation worldwide. However, the amount of black carbon emissions from aviation fuel can be effectively reduced by using cleaner fuels such as Neste MY Renewable Jet Fuel,” said Neste’s Senior Vice President of Innovation, Lars Peter Lindfors.

The competition was organised by the Climate Leadership Coalition, the Bioenergy Association of Finlandthe Finnish Innovation Fund Sitrathe Finnish Environment Institute, and the Central Association of Chimney Sweeps.
