English Español First supply of sustainable aviation fuel in Asia

Neste and All Nippon Airways collaborate to supply the first flight powered by sustainable aviation fuel in Japan, ahead of its mid-to-long term collaboration.



Last update:

Neste and All Nippon Airways (ANA), Japan’s largest airline, are entering a sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) supply agreement. This groundbreaking partnership will see ANA become the first airline to use SAF on flights departing from Japan and also represents Neste’s first SAF supply to an Asian airline.

Initial operations will begin from October 2020 as ANA plans SAF-fueled flights from both Haneda International airport and Narita International Airport. The delivery of the SAF was made possible through collaboration and close coordination on logistics between Neste and the Japanese trading house Itochu Corporation.

“We are also pleased to report that according to the ISCC Proof of Sustainability certification the Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel supplied in Tokyo provides approximately 90% greenhouse gas emissions reduction through its lifecycle and in its neat form compared to fossil jet fuels,” said Yutaka Ito, Executive Vice President at ANA overseeing Procurement.

ANA and Neste plan to expand the collaboration after 2023 based on a multi-year agreement. Neste currently has an annual capacity of 100,000 tons of sustainable aviation fuel. With the Singapore refinery expansion on the way, and with possible additional investment into the Rotterdam refinery, Neste will have the capacity to produce some 1.5 million tons of SAF annually by 2023.

Finland’s Neste refines waste, residues and innovative raw materials into renewable fuels and sustainable feedstock for plastics and other materials. The company is world’s leading producer of renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel.
