Neste and American Airlines have entered into an agreement to explore opportunities to further reduce the environmental footprint through the use of renewable fuels. Neste MY Renewable Jet Fuel(TM) is made from renewable and sustainable raw materials and significantly reduces life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions according to the company. The quality standards, aircraft engine performance, and storage stability and integrity of Neste's renewable jet fuel technology have already been tested and followed in many commercial flights.

One goal of the cooperation will be to facilitate acceptance and commercialization of High Freeze Point HEFA (HFP-HEFA) renewable jet fuel. It is currently under consideration for approval by ASTM International, a globally recognized leader in the development and delivery of voluntary consensus standards for a range of industries.

The aviation industry has set ambitious targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from air transportation, including carbon-neutral growth from 2020 and beyond, and a 50 % reduction of net aviation CO2 emissions by 2050. Currently, sustainable renewable jet fuel offers the only viable alternative to fossil liquid fuels for powering commercial aircraft.
