Expert opinion on… 1% SAF mandate Norway

Posted by | Policy | August 08, 2018

The challenges and feasibility of the intended mandate As you may have heard, the Norwegian government will discuss a mandate of 1% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) for all international and domestic flights from January 1, 2019. A proposal was drafted and is open for submission of thoughts and views up until August 10th. Therefore, the mandate is not yet set in stone, as the final text still has to be reviewed and adopted by the Norwegian Parliament. The public hearing documents can be found here (only available in Norwegian). SkyNRG was asked to share their insights on the challenges that […]

Expert opinion on… RED II

Posted by | Uncategorized | June 22, 2018

A short summary on the status of the Renewable Energy Directive II (RED II), and its potential impacts on the aviation sector The RED establishes an overall policy for the production and promotion of energy from renewable sources in the EU. It requires the EU to fulfil at least 20% of its total energy needs with renewables by 2020 – to be achieved through the attainment of national targets. All EU countries must also ensure that at least 10% of their transport fuels come from renewable sources by 2020. However, the aviation sector and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) are not […]

Expert opinion on… CAAFCER study

Posted by | Uncategorized | June 22, 2018

CAAFCER study confirms reduced contrail formation when flying on SAF Last year SkyNRG supplied sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) for the Civil Aviation Alternate Fuel Contrail and Emissions Research (CAAFCER) study in Canada. The report was published early 2018 and Renco Beunis, Operations Manager at SkyNRG who worked on this project, shares his insights about the study. What is CAAFCER and what was SkyNRG’s role in this project? CAAFCER is a Canadian project initiated by the Green Aviation Research and Development Network (GARDN), that studies contrail formation from commercial flights. The study compared contrail properties of flights between Montreal and Toronto, […]

Finnish Govt wants 40% renewable fuels by 2030

Posted by | Policy | June 18, 2015

In Finland, the government wants to boost the share of renewable fuels to 40% by 2030 compared to current use of 8%. The national industry represented by the petroleum and biofuels association, a recent expansion to the petroleum association indicating the fossil fuel industry’s recognition of biofuels’ role in the transport energy mix in Finland, support the government’s plan as bold and commendable.

Researchers successfully dual crop camelina, soybean

Posted by | Feedstock | June 18, 2015

The USDA Soil Conservation Research Lab in Morris, Minnesota, found encouraging results when growing Camelina sativa with soybean in the Midwest. The researchers experimented with double- and relay-cropping. In double- cropping, soybean enters the field after the camelina harvest in June or July. Relay- cropping, however, overlaps the crop’s time. Soybean grow between rows of camelina in April or May before the camelina plants mature and flower. The benefits were numerous. Relay-cropping actually used less water than double-cropping the two plants. Camelina plants have shallow roots and a short growing season, wich means they don’t use much water. “Other cover […]

Virent and Coke debut 100% plant bottle

Posted by | Producer News | June 18, 2015

The first plastic bottle made entirely from plant-based materials made its debut in Wednesday at the World Expo in Milan, Italy. Coca-Cola has been making its plant-based bottles since 2009, but the plastic in those bottles was only 30% from plant-based materials. Technology developed by Virent enabled plant-based materials to be used on the 70% of the bottle previously used for petroleum. Read the article

The aviation industry is the world’s fasted growing transport sector and responsible for approximately 2,5 % of the global manmade CO2 emissions. Even with efficiency measures taken, this figure is expected to rise to 4 – 4.5 per cent by 2050, without any mitigation.

One of the biggest challenges in reducing this impact is to look for solutions that preserve the sectors social benefits, while maintaining its growth.

99% of an airline’s emissions comes from the combustion of jet fuel. Energy sources like solar, electric and hydrogen do not offer an alternative as aviation will be relying on high density liquid energy carriers for the coming decades. Therefore, sustainable jet fuels are viewed as the best opportunity to reduce carbon emissions.

For more information on Sustainable jet fuel, you can read SkyNRG’s White Paper on Sustainable Jet Fuel.
Rationale for Sustainable Jet fuel
Sustainable jet fuels are produced from sustainable feedstocks like waste streams and non-food energy crops.

These fuels offer the single largest opportunity to reduce emissions, while ensuring long term fuel security for the aviation sector.

Sustainable jet fuel blends can be referred to as ‘drop-in’ fuels, because they have the ability to be used without any changes made to the infrastructure, such as distribution and engine fuel systems.
What are Sustainable Jet Fuels?
In every decision that we make, we follow the vision on sustainable fuels, set by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) in the Energy Vision 2050.:

Sustainable biofuels:
• Exhibit minimal impact on biodiversity
• Meet a sustainability standard with respect to land, water, and energy use
• Do not displace or compete with food crops
• Provide a positive socioeconomic impact.

To ensure the sustainability of our fuels, we have established various measures and important partnerships:

SkyNRG has installed an independent Sustainability Board, consisting of the Dutch wing of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF-NL), Solidaridad and the Copernicus Institute of the University of Utrecht that advises us on all feedstock and technology decisions.

SkyNRG is a member of the Roundtable of Sustainable Biomaterials.

We are in continuous dialogue with local and global NGOs to make sure we do not miss important issues in respect to the feedstock we want to use and fuel we make
