Russia to develop “green” aviation fuel

Gazprom Neft has entered into a partnership with Aeroflot to produce Russia’s first ever minimum-carbon-footprint sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), under an agreement signed by Gazprom Neft CEO Alexander Dyukov and Aeroflot CEO Mikhail Poluboyarinov at this year’s Eastern Economic Forum.*

This partnership between Gazprom Neft and Aeroflot will lead to the development of aviation-fuel formulations which comply with international requirements on limiting greenhouse gas emissions and the International Civil Aviation Organisation’s (ICAO) CORSIA environmental programme.** The new aviation fuel will be adapted for use on various types of aircraft, and will be certified under Russian and international aviation safety standards. A working group on developing Russian SAF is also expected to include Russian and international aircraft manufacturers.
