KLM and Södra to jointly study the feasibility of producing biojet fuel from forest biomass

Type of post: FLASH NEWS.

Södra (the largest forest-owner association in Sweden and an international forest industry group) has signed a letter of intent with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines to conduct a joint feasibility study to examine the prerequisites for producing biojet fuel from forest biomass (see press release, 14/5/2018). While Södra and KLM are the main partners in the collaboration, many other players are also participating. Södra will become the first company in Sweden to join KLM’s Corporate Biofuel Programme, which is aimed at supporting growth in demand for fossil-fuel-free alternatives in the aviation sector. The programme enables companies to ensure that sustainable biojet fuel is used for their air travel by paying a surcharge that covers the difference in price between biofuel and regular jet fuel.
