Repsol on board with aviation biofuels

Repsol has accomplished the manufacture of the Spanish market’s first batch of aviation biofuels.

The milestone allows the company to advance in the manufacturing of low-carbon fuels for industries such as aviation, where options like electrification are not currently possible.

This biojet was produced at Repsol’s Puertollano Industrial Complex and additional batches of aviation biofuel will proceed to be manufactured at different locations around Spain

The primary batch consists of 7,000 tonnes of aviation gas – equal to the consumption of 100 Madrid to Los Angeles flights – which passed the demanding assessments required by these products. It has a bio content below 5% so as to meet the standard requirements established by international specs and in using it will stop 400 tonnes of CO2 from being launched into the environment, which is the same as 40 Madrid to Barcelona flights.

In Spain, the Integrated National Climate and Power Plan acknowledges that biofuels at the moment symbolise the most extensively obtainable and used renewable technology in transportation.

As a result of important role these biofuels play in lowering emissions, Repsol started on different low-carbon options for transportation a number of years ago.

In giving attention to selling biofuels, together with renewable generation, synthetic fuels, green hydrogen, self-consumption and the circular economy, is one of Repsol’s key lines of work to realize its carbon neutrality goal by 2050.
