SkyNRG Touts Sustainable Aviation Fuel Programme (Ind. Report)
SkyNRG
Date: 2019-10-04
Amsterdam-based aviation biofuel specialist SkyNRG reports the launch of its Board Now programme that allow companies to reduce their business air travel emissions while contributing to the development of a new sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production facility.

By signing up to Board Now, organizations will commit to the purchase of SAF for a period of five years. Investment made through the programme will be used by SkyNRG to cover the price difference between SAF and conventional jet fuel. The renewable fuel will be produced by Europe's first dedicated 100,000 tpy SAF production plant in Delfzijl, the Netherlands.

Finnair Touts First "Push for Change" Biofuel Flights (Int'l)
Finnair,SkyNRG
Date: 2019-08-07
Finnair reports it's first biofuel flights -- August 5th and 7th from Sanfrancisco to Helsinki -- backed by its "Push for Change" carbon decreasing initiative. The flights were fueled with a 12 pct biofuel mix reducing the total C02 emissions for the two flights by approximately 32 tons.

Finnair's biofuels partners in San Francisco are SkyNRG and World Energy; Shell Aviation has provided logistics and supply chain support for the project. The sustainable biofuel was produced from used cooking oil in California. Additional information on Finnair’s Push for Change initiative, including the options to purchase biofuel for future flights as well as the offsetting of carbon emissions through certified projects, can be found on Finnair.com's "Push for hange" site.

KLM Secures Large Sustainable Aviation Fuel Uptake (Int'l Report)
KLM, SkyNRG
Date: 2019-05-29
Dutch air carrier KLM is reporting a 10-year agreement for the development and purchase of 75,000 tpy of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). The agreement is in keeping with KLM's sustainability ambitions and will reduce its CO2 emissions by 200,000 tpy.

KLM serves as one of the partners in a collaborative project -- called DSL-01 -- that will develop Europe's first dedicated SAF production plant which is expected to open in 2022 and produce 100,000 tpy of SAF and 15,000 tpy of bioLPG as a byproduct. Other partners in the project, which is expected to come in at roughly €260 million ($290 million), include Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, SkyNRG, and SHV Energy, a global LPG distribution company.

SAF delivers a CO2 reduction of at least 85 pct compared with fossil fuel and contributes to a significant decrease in ultra-fine particles and sulfur emissions.

SkyNRG Developing European Sustainable Jet Biofuel Plant (Int'l)
SkyNRG
Date: 2019-05-27
Further to our 10 Sept., 2018 report, Geneva, Switzerland-base aviation biofuel specialist SkyNRG is reporting it will develop Europe's first sustainable aviation fuel production plant in the Dutch province of Groningen. The new facility will use regionally sourced waste streams, such as used cooking oil to produce sustainable fuel and bio propane for KLM and SHV Energy respectively.

Starting in 2022, the facility will produce 100,000 tpy of sustainable fuel which translates into the aviation industry reducing its CO2 emissions with 270,000 tpy year. The aviation industry is currently responsible for more than 2 pct of the global CO2 emissions.

Compared with conventional jet fuel, SkyNRG's state of the art facility reduces life cycle CO2 emissions by at least 85 pct In addition, flights using sustainable aviation fuel create significantly less emissions of ultrafine particles and sulphur.

Global Bioenergies Consortium Isobutene Demo Funded (Int'l, Funding)
Global Bioenergies,SkyNRG,Neste
Date: 2018-05-14
Evry, France-based Global Bioenergies and an 11 member industrial consortium including Sekab, Neste Engineering Solutions, Repsol and SkyNRG are reporting receipt of EU funding to demonstrate the production of isobutene from softwood residue derivatives for use in gasoline and jetfuel. The 3-year, €19.7 million project received EU grant funding totaling €13.9 million, €5.7 million of which went to project coordinator Global Bioenergies

With an estimated forestry residues potential of about 145 million tpy, the European Union has the potential to support the deployment of hundreds of such biorefineries.

Global Bioenergies is one of the few companies worldwide, and the only one in Europe, that is developing a process to convert renewable resources into hydrocarbons through fermentation. The Company initially focused on the production of isobutene, one of the most important petrochemical building blocks that can be converted into fuels, plastics, organic glass and other applications, according to the company.
