Neste and Shell collaborate to increase SAF availability
From October 2020, the availability of sustainable aviation fuel is being given a shot in the arm by Neste and Shell. The goal is to lower emissions by reducing the carbon intensity in fuel that is sold across the globe.

Neste and Shell Aviation have entered into a sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) supply agreement. This agreement significantly increases the supply and availability of SAF for the aviation industry with effect from October 2020. It brings together Neste's expertise in the production and supply of renewable diesel and SAF with Shell Aviation's credentials in supplying and managing fuel around the world.

“To tackle climate change and reach net zero emissions, the aviation industry must act fast. We aim to reduce the carbon intensity of the fuels we sell, which includes selling more lower-carbon fuels like sustainable aviation fuel, over time. Today's agreement with Neste will help our customers to lower their emissions and demonstrates the kind of progress we can deliver by working in collaboration with others,” says Anna Mascolo, president, Shell Aviation.

“The aviation industry is essential for global business, generating growth and facilitating economic recovery,” adds Thorsten Lange, executive vice president for renewable aviation at Neste. “It also enables people to travel and goods to be transported rapidly across the globe. But if we are to address aviation-related emissions, we need to utilise all the available solutions. SAF offers the only viable alternative to fossil liquid fuels for powering commercial aircraft with an immediate potential to reduce aviation's greenhouse gas emissions. We are fully committed to supporting the aviation industry, its customers and corporates with their emission reduction targets.”
