Eni launches sustainable aviation fuel production

21 Oct 2021

Eni has started production of alternative sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) that will significantly contribute to the decarbonisation of aviation in the short to medium term.

Eni SAFs are produced exclusively from waste and residues, in line with the company’s strategic decision not to use palm oil from 2023.

Eni plans to double its current bio-refining capacity of 1.1m tonnes/year within the four-year period and increase it to 5/6m tonnes/year by 2050. The so-called biojet will play a significant role in the product mix, in line with market trends, and the aim is to reach a production capacity of at least 500,000 tonnes/year of biojet by 2030.

Initially, SAF is being produced at the Eni refinery in Taranto, with a 0.5% share of UCO (used cooking oils), contributing to the 2% share of bio component proposed as part of the EU Fit For 55 package. This is a first step and part of Eni’s commitment to the decarbonisation of all its products and processes by 2050 for all sectors, including some of the most challenging such as the aviation, heavy vehicles and marine sectors.
