ExxonMobil, Neste partner to supply sustainable aviation fuel in France
Aviation fuel supplier ExxonMobil and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) producer Neste announce plans for commercial-scale distribution of Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel™ at the largest airports in France. The measure is taken to meet the 1 percent SAF mandate introduced by the French government and effective the beginning of this year.
The agreement combines ExxonMobil’s expertise in the supply and distribution of jet fuel with Neste’s market-leading SAF production capabilities to provide a continuous and scalable supply of SAF into France. In this collaboration, the SAF is a 30 percent blend with conventional fossil-based jet fuel.
“We are delivering solutions that enable customers to meet product performance requirements while reducing greenhouse gas emissions,” said Charles Amyot, lead country manager for ExxonMobil in France. “We have the capabilities and infrastructure to safely and reliably supply this energy, and will be ready to comply with new French regulations for sustainable aviation fuel.”
Jonathan Wood, vice president of renewable aviation in Europe at Neste, said, “This supply agreement is an important milestone for Neste, and we are excited to support ExxonMobil in helping its customers reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the aviation sector in France.”
