“It’s SkyNRG’s mission to make sustainable aviation fuels the new global standard.”
Who we are
Flying is essential for economies and businesses globally and at the same time enables us to visit family and enjoy holidays on the other side of the world. Air travel has become more affordable, driving further growth. But partly because of its growing importance. This growth means economic development on the one hand, but increasing carbon emissions on the other. If current forecasts are correct the aviation industry is expected to double its carbon emissions by 2050. SkyNRG believes that exploring the world shouldn’t cost the earth and wants to offer everyone the opportunity to fly sustainably. That’s why it’s SkyNRG mission to make sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) the new global standard.
More than 99% of airline emissions and approximately 50% of airport emissions result from the combustion of kerosene. Increased energy efficiency and energy demand reduction are effective ways and first priority to reduce fuel consumption and related greenhouse gas emissions. But efficiency improvements do not offer a sole solution to aviation-related emissions and dependency on oil. Because airplanes are not able to switch to alternative energy sources like hydrogen or electricity, SAF made from renewable biomass is one of the most important options to significantly reduce the industry’s carbon footprint and at the same time reduce the dependency on fossil kerosene. For this reason, we subscribe the WWF statement that sustainable biomass should primarily be used for those transport sectors that have no alternative for liquid fuels.
SkyNRG takes all possible measures to ensure that the production of our fuel does not have negative side effects such as deforestation or the displacement of food crops. But for us, sustainability is about much more than reducing CO2 emissions or avoiding harmful impact. We believe that sustainability is all about improving the status quo and therefore we continuously strive to take that extra step to realize positive socio-economic impact along the way. Apart from reducing CO2emissions by up to 85%, particular matter (PM) by up to 90%, and reduce Sulphur (SOx) emissions by 100%, compared to fossil jet fuel, our SAF can increase energy security and bring economic development (job creation, industry development, land use, and research & development). In order to be a leading brand in realizing this positive impact, we are convinced that co-creation is key. We, therefore, build strong partnerships with all relevant players throughout the supply chain: from airlines, corporates, and airports to NGOs, governments and technology players.
Teaming up with these partners has been essential to building SkyNRG’s impressive track record since the company was founded in 2010 and supplied many of the initial commercial SAF flights worldwide.
What we do
SkyNRG is the pioneer and global leader for sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) solutions. Having supplied over 30 airlines on all continents, it is our mission to make SAF the new global standard. SkyNRG sources, blends, and distributes SAF, guarantees sustainability throughout the supply chain and helps to co-fund any price gap over conventional jet fuel. At the same time, SkyNRG focuses on developing regional SAF supply chains -e.g., DSL-01, that offer a real sustainable, and affordable alternative to fossil fuels. To ensure we make the right decisions regarding the sustainability of our operations, projects, and products, SkyNRG is structurally advised by an independent Sustainability Board, which includes representatives from WWF International, the European Climate Foundation, Solidaridad Network and the University of Groningen. Also, SkyNRG’s operations are certified by the Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB), the highest possible certification standard for sustainable fuels.
