Neste supplies DHL Express with sustainable aviation fuel at SFO

December 22/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Neste, the worlds leading provider of renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) has signed an agreement to supply SAF to DHL Express, the express service arm of Deutsche Post DHL Group, worlds leading mail and logistics company, said the company.

The Group is renowned as a pioneer of green logistics, utilising its expertise to make the logistics of its customers greener and more sustainable. Through this agreement Neste has commenced supply of sustainable aviation fuel with immediate effect to DHL Express at San Francisco International Airport (SFO).

Earlier this year Neste established a continuous supply of sustainable aviation fuel to SFO. Neste MY Sustainable Aviation FuelTM has been made available for all commercial, cargo, business and private aviation operators at SFO, with commitments in place to use SAF from major commercial and business airlines. This deal will see DHL Express become the first cargo operator to use Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel on flights departing from SFO and will enable them to contribute to their climate protection target to reduce all logistics-related emissions to zero by the year 2050.

"DHL has set the goal of achieving zero logistics-related emissions by 2050. To reach this ambitious target and support our customers with their own vision of a greener supply chain in the future, we are exploring innovative solutions across every part of our network. Sustainable aviation fuels have great potential to further increase the environmental efficiency of our air network and we are therefore very excited to begin this collaboration with Neste out of San Francisco International Airport, said Mike Parra, CEO, DHL Express Americas.

"We are committed to supporting our customers to meet their climate and carbon neutrality targets and reduce greenhouse gas emissions with our sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). Despite the difficult current situation, the aviation industry is showing increased commitment to investing in sustainable aviation fuel, says Jonathan Wood, Vice President, Renewable Aviation at Neste. The cargo aviation sector is essential for global business, generating growth and facilitating economic recovery. As the transportation of goods is an essential part of a strong economy, we need solutions which both enable its growth and reduce emissions immediately. We are proud to be now collaborating with DHL Express and support them in their highly ambitious emission reduction targets."

As MRC reported earlier, in March 2020, Borealis started to produce polypropylene (PP) based on Neste-produced renewable feedstock in its production facilities in Kallo and Beringen, Belgium. This marked the first time that Borealis has replaced fossil fuel-based feedstock in its large-scale commercial production of PP. The Belgian plants were recently awarded by the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) organization with ISCC Plus certification for its renewable PP.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 1,760,950 tonnes in the first ten months of 2020, up by 3% year on year. Only high density polyethylene (HDPE) and linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) shipments increased. At the same time, PP shipments to the Russian market reached 978,870 tonnes in  January-October 2020 (calculated using the formula: production minus exports plus imports minus producers' inventories as of 1 January, 2020). Supply of exclusively of PP random copolymer increased.
