JetBlue signs MOU with Fidelis new Energy
JetBlue has announced a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Fidelis new Energy for blended sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). It will be produced by Fidelis’ Grön Fuels facility in Louisiana.
“With SAF being less than 1% of our total fuel usage, we need significantly more supply to reach our 2040 net zero target,”said Sara Bogdan, director of sustainability and environmental social governance, JetBlue, “With partners like Fidelis and their carbon negative Grön Fuels GigaSystem, we are not only supplying our own growing SAF needs, we’re sending a powerful signal that significant demand for SAF exists. By introducing negative carbon intensity SAF to our network, we are also taking steps towards reaching true carbon neutrality as an airline.”
The five-year deal covers 92 million gallons of blended sustainable aviation fuel between 2025 and 2030.
“Carbon Negative SAF accelerates the goals of aviation industry participants genuinely committed to decarbonization like JetBlue in a pragmatic and timely manner.” said Dan Shapiro, Fidelis co-founder and CEO. “We are excited to partner the Grön Fuels GigaSystem with JetBlue for the provision of carbon negative SAF to achieve its environmental goals.”
