Gazprom and Aeroflot behind Russia’s first green aviation fuel

Moscow, Sep 24 (Prensa Latina) The Russian companies Gazprom Oil and Aeroflot reported the signing of a deal to create the first production of aviation fuel with a minimal carbon footprint from agro-forestry systems.

The oil company explained that the use of such green resource can reduce up greenhouse gas emissions in the sector up to 80 percent, TASS news agency reported.

The deal between the Russian firms provides for the development of various efficient formulations of aviation fuel. In this case, the fuel is to be adjusted to various types of aircraft and it will be certified in accordance with Russian and international aviation safety standards.

‘In our country and around the world there is a potentially high demand from the aviation industry for green fuel, taking into account the task of reducing the carbon intensity of air traffic,’ Gazprom Oil head Alexander Diukov noted.

He explained that the main research platform for the new product will be the Gazprom Neft Industrial Innovation Technology Center in Saint Petersburg.

According to Diukov, the partnership with Russia’s largest airline will make the process of developing this aviation fuel more efficient.

According to Aeroflot CEO Mikhail Poluboyarinov, ecology is becoming one of the most important issues in aviation, and its relevance increased under the influence of the Covid-19 pandemic.
