Neste to produce aviation fuel

Finnish oil refiner and renewable diesel producer Neste Oil has joined the ITAKA (Initiative Towards Sustainable Kerosene for Aviation) project, which is being funded by the EU to support the commercialisation and use of renewable aviation fuel in Europe. Neste Oil will produce a total of 4 000 tonnes of its NExBTL renewable aviation fuel as part of the project, primarily from sustainably produced Spanish camelina oil, and possibly also used cooking oil. The renewable fuel will be blended with conventional fossil aviation fuel in accordance with the appropriate ASTM standard to create a 50/50 blend that will then be distributed to European airlines for use on their commercial flights. The 36-month ITAKA project has been granted approximately €10 million of funding under the EU’s 7th Framework Programme for Research and Development (2007-2013).
