Lufthansa conducts first European scheduled flight using sugar-based biofuel

By |September 16th, 2014|Aviation, Supply-chain initiatives|0 Comments|

On September 15th, Lufthansa flight LH 190 from Frankfurt to Berlin Tegel is being operated using a ten percent blend of the new biofuel component farnesan. This is the first scheduled flight in Europe to run on this fuel mix. Farnesan is a sugar-based bio-kerosene developed jointly by the TOTAL oil group and the U.S.-based biotech company Amyris, which in April of this year received RSB (Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials) Certification.

Today’s flight was preceded by a rig test at Lufthansa Technik’s facility in Hamburg in autumn 2013 as part of the EU’s “Blending Study” project. The tests showed that […]

Responsible biofuels according to the WWF

By |September 16th, 2014|Sustainability|0 Comments|

Biofuels are emerging as an increasingly popular alternative to fossil fuels. Indeed, they could make a massive contribution to sustainable development.

However, the commodities used to produce biofuels, like soy, palm oil and sugarcane, are often produced in ways that affects the environment in some of the world’s most sensitive ecosystems.

WWF is striving to change this so that biofuels can reach their potential without harming nature.

Europe’s biggest budget airline, Ryanair, is making a major bet on Boeing’s next generation of the 737 as it aims to pack more seats on the new jets and steal market share from some of the continent’s biggest players. The order for 200 new 737 MAX jets will take Ryanair’s fleet to 520 planes by 2023, up from 300 at this moment. The Irish budget carrier is targeting 150 million annual passengers by then, and CEO Michael O’Leary has made no secret that he intends to draw that additional traffic from such European giants as LHS, BA, AF-KLM,Aitalia and […]

Stora Enso to build demo-scale plant in US

By |September 15th, 2014|Producer News|0 Comments|

Finnish pulp and paper manufacturer Stora Enso is investing €32 million in a new demonstration plant, to be built in Louisiana, US, following its recent acquisition of biotechnology association Virdia.
The plant will be used to validate, on an industrial scale, Virdia’s technology. This newly acquired extraction and separation process enables cellulosic biomass, such as wood and rural waste, to be converted into sugars.

Fulcrum receives $105M USDA loan guarantee for biojet fuel plant

By |September 9th, 2014|Uncategorized|0 Comments|

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced that USDA has closed on a loan guarantee to Fulcrum Sierra Biofuels LLC to build a biorefinery to produce jet fuel from municipal solid waste.

“This represents a huge step forward in the development of clean, renewable, job-creating American fuels,” Vilsack said during a speech at the National Clean Energy Conference. “The nation is entering a new energy age that will make us more energy independent, cut carbon pollution and strengthen our economy, especially in rural communities where clean fuels will be produced.”

Garuda Indonesia plans to start using locally-sourced aviation biofuel from 2016 as part of government target

By |September 4th, 2014|Aviation, Producer News|0 Comments|

As part of a national plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from air transport, state-owned airline Garuda Indonesia has confirmed it is targeting a two per cent use of biofuels in its jet fuel consumption from 2016 and three per cent from 2020. The Director of Operations said last week the commitment was heavily dependent on the availability of locally-sourced palm oil that is currently being laboratory tested. Though, they will progress with demonstration flights that will be coming up soon.

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?
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
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 w(want to) use and fuel we make
