SkyNRG first operator capable of supplying RSB-certified jet fuel into wing
8 March 2013
SkyNRG is the first biofuel operator worldwide with Roundtable on Sustainable Biofuels (RSB) certification for their entire supply chain (“feedstock to flight”) and is currently the only fuel operator that can deliver RSB-certified renewable jet fuel into wing at any airport in the world.
This gives aviation, for the first time ever, the possibility to fly on RSB-certified fuel. RSB is the leading multi-stakeholder derived global standard, ensuring that biofuels deliver on their promise of sustainability.
We are pleased that a full supply chain for RSB certified jet fuel is now available for regular use in commercial aviation. Congratulations to SkyNRG for achieving certification under the RSB system, which NWF believes provides the best assurance of biofuels’ sustainability. SkyNRG can now assist airlines around the world to fulfill their pledges to reduce carbon emissions while meeting environmental and social safeguards.—Barbara Bramble, Chair of the board for RSB and Head of the International Climate and Energy Program at the National Wildlife Federation
The Roundtable on Sustainable Biofuels (RSB) is an international multi-stakeholder initiative that brings together farmers, companies, non-governmental organizations, experts, governments, and inter-governmental agencies concerned with ensuring the sustainability of biofuels production and processing.
SkyNRG’s mission is to develop demand and global supply chains for sustainable aviation fuels. SkyNRG is now the world’s market leader for sustainable jet fuel, supplying more than 20 aviation customers on 5 continents in the world.
Next to serving airlines directly, SkyNRG actively boosts demand by engaging governments, airports and large corporations to actively join the Fuel Future- leading to the world’s first permanent green aviation routes and the scale needed to longer compete with fossil fuel directly.
On the supply side, SkyNRG is focussing on developing local supply chains centered around leading airports across the globe (BioPorts). Currently it is already active at 6 BioPort locations in the world.
SkyNRG is feedstock and technology agnostic. does not commit to one single feedstock or technology. SkyNRG is advised by an independent Sustainability Board, consisting of the Dutch wing of the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF-NL), Solidaridad, and the Copernicus Institute of Utrecht University.
