Neste and CIM are collaborating to enable the supply of Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel™ into France.
The collaboration enables fuel marketing companies to comply with the French mandate for sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), which has set a requirement to include a minimum of 1% SAF in jet fuel for all commercial flights from French airports in 2022.
Compagnie Industrielle Maritime (CIM), part of NOVEN Group, plays a major role in the energy supply infrastructure in France and operates the biggest import terminal in Le Havre, France via which SAF will be delivered from Neste to the local fuel suppliers.
From Le Havre, the blended SAF will be transported by the TRAPIL pipeline to airports where it will be used to fuel aircraft. Pipeline distribution reduces greenhouse gas emissions of the fuel transports when compared to conventional logistics by tanker trucks.
Neste and CIM are committed to supporting and accelerating the transition of the aviation industry from conventional jet fuel use to SAF, which is widely acknowledged as a key element in helping achieve aviation’s ambitious emissions reduction goals.
“Sustainable aviation fuel is recognised globally as the most feasible option to significantly reduce aviation emissions in the near term. Through SAF mandates and partnerships like this in France, we will together drive the increased use of SAF and help build momentum in tackling aviation’s emission reduction challenge. Neste is committed to contribute significantly as we are increasing our global SAF production capacity to 1.5 million tons per annum by the end of 2023. We have also announced the expansion of our Rotterdam renewables refinery,” said Jonathan Wood, vice president Europe, renewable aviation at Neste.
“CIM le Havre Terminal is a unique hub for aviation fuel in north-western Europe, with its deep sea berths and TRAPIL and CEPS pipelines connections. We are strongly committed to supporting our customers and partners through the SAF deployment. Massive investments are made at our CIM Le Havre terminal to ensure the availability of dedicated infrastructures for renewable fuels like SAF and HVO, needed by the industry to succeed in the energy transition” added Olivier Peyrin, CEO at NOVEN, CIM’s Holding Company.
