Neste and Vitol Aviation to provide Heathrow with Sustainable Aviation Fuel

For the first time, passengers from Heathrow will be able to reduce their flying emissions by up to 80%1. Vitol Aviation, a fuel supplier at Heathrow, is making Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel™ available ahead of the G7 Summit to be held from 11 to 13 June 2021. Vitol Aviation intends to deliver further supplies ahead of COP26 to enable attendees to also transit to Glasgow with lower-emissions.

Vitol Aviation’s expertise in the specialist handling of jet fuel will be combined with Neste’s market-leading SAF production capabilities. Neste MY SAF is produced 100% from renewable and sustainable waste and residue raw materials, such as used cooking oil and animal fat waste. Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel, in its neat form and over the life cycle, reduces up to 80% of greenhouse gas emissions compared to fossil jet fuel use1.

The fuel, which is blended upstream of the airport, will be incorporated into the airport’s main fuel supply from 3 June and made available for use across Heathrow flights over the following days. Whilst the fuel supply may be comparatively small – equivalent to fuelling up to 10 short haul flights – it serves as proof of concept for more flights to be operated using SAF at the UK’s hub airport going forward.
