Swedavia airports to fly with UCO-based biofuel in December

December 19, 2019 |

In Sweden, starting Thursday bio aviation fuel will be used for a couple of days at Swedish airports Stockholm Arlanda Airport, Göteborg Landvetter Airport, Bromma Stockholm Airport, Visby Airport and Luleå Airport. Swedavia is one of only a few companies in the world that have been supplied with aviation biofuel during 2018.

Swedavia’s delivery of biofuel, made from used cooking oil, will refuel aircrafts at five of the company’s airports in December. That makes these Swedavia airports some of the only ones in the world that will use a percentage of biofuel to refuel aircraft serving them during 2018. Bio aviation potentially reduces fossil carbon dioxide emissions by up to 80 per cent, compared to conventional jet fuel.

Swedavia purchases the biofuel from the Fly Green Fund, which provides companies and individuals with the opportunity to buy bio aviation fuel for their flights. The fuel was produced by World Energy and delivered by SkyNRG in partnership with Shell.
