Eni delivers 5,000 liters of HVO to Rome airport for road vehicle use

January 25, 2022 |

In Italy, a shipment of 5,000 liters of pure HVO hydrogenated biofuel arrived at Fiumicino airport from Eni’s Venice biorefinery in Porto Marghera. A further contribution to the decarbonization of road vehicles at airports. The HVO hydrogenated biofuel is used in ADR Assistance vehicles to transport passengers with reduced mobility around the airports. 

An agreement between Eni and ADR is already in place for the supply of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) produced at Eni’s Taranto refinery through a co-feeding process at conventional plants with 0.5% made up of used cooking and frying oils. This is a further step forward for Aeroporti di Roma in terms of sustainability after Fiumicino airport, the leading Italian airport hub, which was the first airport in Europe to be awarded the highest Airport Carbon Accreditation 4+ “Transition” certification from ACI Europe for CO2 reduction. This is in line with Aeroporti di Roma’s target, announced last year, which set out in the Sustainability-Linked Bond issued last April to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2030, well in advance of the original sector targets.

Over the next few months, Eni will begin production of SAFs at Eni’s Livorno refinery through distilling bio-components produced in Eni’s biorefineries. The raw materials used will be exclusively waste vegetable oils and fats, with the resulting product, called “Eni Biojet”, containing 100% biogenic components and able to comprise up to 50% of a blend with conventional jet fuel.
