KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has committed itself for a ten year period to the development and purchase of 75,000 tonnes of sustainable aviation fuel annually.

KLM has become the first airline in the world to invest in sustainable aviation fuel on this scale. SkyNRG, a global expert in sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), will develop Europe’s first dedicated plant for the production of SAF in Delfzijl. The production facility will specialise in producing SAF, bioLPG and naphtha, primarily using regional waste and residue streams as feedstock. The plant will be the first of its kind in the world. The construction of this facility, which is scheduled to open in 2022, is a concrete step towards fulfilling KLM’s sustainability ambitions and will contribute to the broader “Smart and Sustainable” industry plan.

SHV Energy, a global leader in LPG distribution, will also invest in the facility and will purchase the bioLPG produced.
