Gevo, Inc. has announced that it has signed a fuel sales agreement with Scandinavian Airline System (SAS) to produce and supply sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) for use and distribution in low carbon fuel regions of the US.
With the finalisation of this new supply contract, Gevo will supply SAF to SAS from Gevo’s expanded Luverne, Minnesota plant, which is expected to be constructed over the next several years.
"SAS is a pioneer in the use of sustainable aviation fuel, such as launching a new ancillary product that gives travelers the option to reduce their climate impact through the purchase of biofuel when booking a ticket, or at any time before departure. This agreement is another step in that innovative approach to sustainability," said Patrick Gruber, CEO of Gevo. "SAS is a leader in their commitment to SAF, and we are happy to partner with them as we continue our crusade to lower the carbon intensity of aviation fuels."
"SAS has ambitious goals in reducing its' climate affecting emissions by 25% in 2030. In order to do this and bridge the gap to a future zero emission aviation we are determined to increase the use of biofuels. This agreement is yet another important step for SAS' transformation toward a more sustainable aviation," said Lars Andersen Resare, Head of Sustainability, SAS.
