Neste and Genève Aéroport have joined hands to pioneer their way toward making flying a more sustainable option. This has been planned to accomplish via the decarbonization of aviation in the direction of fossil neutral growth. For aircraft operations to be conducted cost-efficiently and with reduced CO2 emissions from the Geneva International Airport, Genève Aéroport has been preparing to introduce renewable jet fuel. Starting late 2018, Genève Aéroport has targeted a 1.0% of its twelve-monthly jet fuel consumption to be comprised of renewable jet fuel.
Neste MY Renewable Jet Fuel has been considered by the Finland engineering services company as a sustainable solution for curbing CO2 emissions in the aviation sector.
Emissions Reduction in High Focus as Aviation Expands Drastically
Aviation is one of the fastest growing sectors in the world, where it could be likely that the environment will be impacted by the heavy emission of greenhouse gases. Thus, the need for sustainability could increase even more in future. According to Neste, collaborating with Genève Aéroport could be a significant step for its growth in renewable applications outside of road traffic fuels. Both entities have shared the common view of combating climate change with the reduction of CO2 emissions.
The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has targeted a carbon-neutral growth in aviation from 2020 onwards. Sustainable renewable jet fuel is anticipated to be the only substitute for fossil liquid fuels used to power commercial aircrafts. It could require no additional investments in new fuel distribution infrastructure for its immediate adoption.
