Shell Aviation and SkyNRG, a provider of sustainable aviation fuel, have announced a long-term strategic collaboration to promote and develop the use of sustainable fuel in aviation supply chains.
The multiyear agreement will see the companies work together to develop long-term opportunities for low-carbon solutions. These efforts are structurally supported by committed funding to a joint business development fund, the partners note.
“We want Shell to be a leader in the low-carbon transition in aviation fuels,” says Anne Anderson, vice president of Shell Aviation. “Today’s agreement with industry pioneers SkyNRG demonstrates the type of progressive collaboration which can help us move us towards a lower-carbon-emissions future. Working together, we believe we can advance sustainable solutions for the benefit of our entire industry.”
Maarten van Dijk, CEO of SkyNRG, adds, “In addition to bringing together the right mix of technical expertise and operational excellence, it’s the shared ambitions of SkyNRG and Shell Aviation to develop this new industry that make this collaboration an obvious one. Shell Aviation’s long-term commitment to develop this new market sends a strong signal that the involvement from all players across the industry is critical to delivering the sustainable solutions that are vital for the future of aviation.”
