Neste delivers SAF to Emirates from Singapore refinery


Neste announced that it has begun supplying sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to Emirates at the Singapore Changi Airport, making it the first international carrier to begin off take of green fuel from the Neste’s Singapore refinery.

“We are excited Emirates has started using Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel at Changi Airport as the newest step in our cooperation. It makes Emirates the first international visiting carrier using SAF at the airport produced at our Singapore refinery and supplied into the airport via our integrated supply chain. We are looking forward to continuing to work together on scaling up the supply of SAF for Emirates’ operations,” said Alexander Kueper, vice president, Renewable Aviation Business, Neste.

Neste said that the supply of SAF to Emirates at Changi Airport is part of its partnership with the airline announced in October, 2023. It said that over the last few weeks, Neste has supplied over 2,600 tons (3.3m liters) of blended SAF to Emirates.

Earlier this year, Neste supplied over 6,000 tons of blended SAF to Emirates at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.

“Emirates’ investment into Neste-produced SAF in Singapore marks the first step forward in our SAF adoption in Asia, a region that is primed to become a leading supplier of SAF, which continues to be in short supply,” said Adel Al Redha, deputy president and chief operating officer, Emirates.
