Repsol produces airplane biofuel for Spanish market

Repsol has announced the production of the first batch of sustainable aviation fuel (biojet) at its Puertollano Industrial Complex in Spain, pioneering the manufacture of this fuel in Spain, the company said.

The first batch consists of 7,000 tons of aviation fuel with a bio-component. This will prevent 440 tons of CO2 emissions from being released into the atmosphere, which is equal to 40 Madrid-Barcelona flights.

The biojet produced passed the demanding tests required for this type of product, and its production will be extended to other Repsol facilities across Spain. The Company will develop alternatives aimed at obtaining airplane fuel derived from waste.

With this new decarbonization initiative, Repsol is advancing towards achieving its commitment to become a net zero emissions company by 2050.
