STOCKHOLM: June 05, 2019. Neste, the producer of renewable fuels from wastes and residues, and Air BP have begun delivering sustainable aviation fuel to Swedavia, a state-owned group that owns, operates and develops 10 Swedish airports.

Stockholm Arlanda, Malmö, Umeå, Åre Östersund and Göteborg Landvetter airports will be using the fuel to support Swedavia reduce CO2 emissions.

Swedavia Stockholm“I want to congratulate Swedavia for its courageous decision to use sustainable aviation fuel as a means in decreasing greenhouse gas emissions of corporate staff air travel,” commented Neste’s president and CEO Peter Vanacker.

“I firmly believe Swedavia’s example will be followed by many companies over the next few years, as corporations pay close attention to their corporate air travel footprint, seeking to operate their businesses in a more environmentally responsible and sustainable way,” he added.

Neste produced the fuel in Finland from renewable waste and residues including used cooking oil. Supplied by Air BP it will produce up to 80 percent less greenhouse gas emissions over its life-cycle compared with conventional jet fuel.

“Reconciling people’s need to meet with the absolute necessity to transform the transport sector and make it fossil-free is one of the most important challenges of our time,” declared Swedavia president and CEO Jonas Abrahamsson. “Being able to fly in a way that is environmentally sustainable is an essential requirement in order for air transport to also be a transport mode of the future that links Sweden together and links Sweden with the rest of the world. Bio jet fuel is one of the tools that will get us there.”

Currently, sustainable aviation fuel offers the only viable drop-in alternative to fossil fuels for powering commercial aircraft and Neste is expecting to produce up to 100,000 tons per year in the US and Europe and over one million tons when its Singapore refinery expansion comes on line by 2022.

Swedavia specialises in developing airports with low environmental impact.
