Comments made in April 2022:
“OMV is implementing numerous measures to achieve its ambitious strategic sustainability goals, and sustainable aviation fuel plays a key role in our transformation. We are planning to increase sales of SAF from our own production from approx. 2,000 this year to more than 700,000 metric tons per year by 2030. With this, we address the reduction of greenhouse gases. The first milestone is already achieved with the delivery of SAF to our longstanding partner, Austrian Airlines. Through this cooperation, we demonstrate the strength of two national champions, OMV and Austrian Airlines, which further solidifies Austria as an innovation hub”, said Elena Skvortsova, executive officer for Marketing & Trading, OMV.
“Aviation will continue to connect people and societies around the world. Sustainable aviation fuels are a key lever for making transport and connectivity carbon-neutral. As the first Austrian airline, we are already fueling our aircraft with SAF, bringing us a step closer to meet our climate goals”, said Michael Trestl, chief commercial officer at Austrian Airlines.
“Sustainable aviation fuels are a core technology for reducing CO2 emissions in air travel and they demonstrate the enormous innovation potential of the industry. The production of SAF at our Schwechat Refinery can be seen as highly efficient not only due to the use of regionally sourced sustainable raw materials but also due to the use of existing infrastructure for production, storage and fueling at Vienna International Airport”, said Martijn van Koten, executive board member for Refining, OMV.
