Neste, CIM ink deal to enable the fulfillment of France’s SAF blending obligations 

November 24, 2022 |

In Finland, Neste and CIM, part of NOVEN Group in France announced their collaboration to enable the supply of Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel into France. 

Neste noted that the collaboration enables fuel marketing companies to comply with the French mandate for sustainable aviation fuel, 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) 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. 

“Sustainable aviation fuel is recognized 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.
