Ryanair Negotiates Sustainable Aviation Fuel Agreement
In accordance with a memorandum of agreement, Ryanair and the Austrian oil and gas corporation OMV will deliver sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to Ryanair airports in Germany, Austria, and Romania over the course of the next eight years.
According to the arrangement, Ryanair will buy up to 160,000 tonnes (53 million gallons) of the fuel, which is produced using waste products from businesses like packaging or textiles or used cooking oil as feedstocks.
Ryanair claims that the agreement with OMV would result in them saving up to 400,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions, which is the equivalent of 25,000 flights from Dublin to Vienna. SAF can produce up to 80% fewer carbon emissions than conventional aviation fuel.
According to the airline, the initiative represents progress toward Ryanair’s 12.5% objective for SAF fuel by 2030.Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in Aviation Blog, Aviation News
