AIN is proud to announce the winner of the 2021 Top Flight Awards Sustainability category: Neste.
Neste is a leading supplier of sustainable aviation fuel to the U.S. and European markets. The recently announced expansion at its Rotterdam refinery represents a $231 million investment that will add another 500,000 tons of sustainable aviation fuel a year to the plant’s capacity.
Burning 100 percent SAF in place of Jet-A can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80 percent, while the emissions reductions are lower when burning blended SAF and Jet-A.
In September 2021, Neste announced that it would acquire Agri Trading, one of the largest independent renewable waste and residue fat and oil traders in the U.S. Also that month, Neste announced it is partnering with Kinder Morgan to create a domestic raw material storage and logistics hub in Harvey, Louisiana to support increased production of renewable diesel, SAF, and renewable feedstock for polymers and chemicals. Among the materials stored at the facility will be the used cooking oil Neste collects from more than 40,000 restaurants across the United States.
