ITAKA provides sustainable fuel for KLM flights at Oslo Airport

ITAKA provides sustainable fuel for worldwide’s first biojet supply via hydrant system at 
      Oslo Airport

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has launched a series of around 80 biofuel flights from Oslo to Amsterdam operated with an EMBRAER 190. Biofuel has to be supplied by fuel trucks for these flights in order to measure the efficiency of biofuel in comparison with kerosene during the Embraer flights. The biofuel for these series of flights is produced from 100% RSB (Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials) certified camelina oil and in full compliance with the EU RED standard. It is produced within the ITAKA project and supplied by Air BP and SkyNRG.
