The longest sustainable biojet flight program
Framed on ITAKA project, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has launched
the first set of a program with 20 long-haul biojet flights using an Airbus A330-200
aircraft, which will be the longest worldwide commercial flight program using sustainable aviation biofuel reported to date.
The fuel to be used in the first flights consists of a 20% blend of Used Cooking Oil-based (UCO) renewable jet fuel supplied by
ITAKA partner SkyNRG and standard fossil kerosene.
Sustainable Aviation Fuels Forum
The projects CORE-JetFuel, FORUM-AE and ITAKA are pleased to announce the Sustainable Aviation Fuels Forum taking place in Madrid on 20th – 22nd October 2014. This event will bring together stakeholders to share experiences and views, to exchange best practices, to evaluate emerging issues and to jointly elaborate recommendations towards the successful future development of sustainable aviation fuels.
Renewable Jet Fuel ready for use in commercial aviation
With the newly revised ASTM standard for jet fuel, Amyris and Total begin to prepare to market a drop-in jet fuel that contains up to 10% blends of renewable farnesane. This new jet fuel blend meets the rigorous performance requirements set for Jet A/A-1 fuel used by the global commercial aviation industry. The ASTM standard involved an end-to-end evaluation program to verify and ensure that the renewable jet fuel product is compatible with aircraft and engine components and systems.
