Through this agreement Neste has commenced supply of sustainable aviation fuel to DHL Express on San Francisco International Airport (SFO).

Neste’s SAF is made from sustainably sourced, renewable waste and residue raw materials.

Typically, in its neat form and over the life cycle, its use can reduce up to 80% of greenhouse gas emissions compared to fossil jet fuel use.

Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel gives a solution for reducing the direct greenhouse gas emissions of flying.

It can be used as a drop in fuel with existing aircraft engines and airport infrastructure, requiring no extra investment.

Prior to use, Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel is blended with fossil jet fuel and is then certified to meet ASTM jet fuel specifications.

Neste’s sustainable aviation fuel annual capacity is currently 100,000 tons (approximately 34 million gallons).
