April 15 (Renewables Now) - Finland’s Neste Oyj (HEL:NESTE) and Air BP, the aviation division of UK oil and gas company BP plc (LON:BP), announced on Monday an agreement to deliver sustainable aviation fuel to airline and airport customers in Sweden during 2019.

The collaboration calls for the Finnish oil refiner to produce the blend of sustainable low-carbon fuel which Air BP will distribute in Sweden, where a proposal for decarbonising aviation has been announced as part of the country’s initiative to go fossil-free by 2045.

Neste said its blend of aviation fuel is produced from non-palm renewable and sustainable raw materials. It can reduce up to 80% of greenhouse gas emissions over its life-cycle compared to conventional jet fuel.
