SkyNRG Americas Highlights Pathway to Global Aviation's Sustainable Future During COP26 Climate Summit

BEND, Ore., Nov. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- SkyNRG Americas, a leader in sustainable aviation fuel ("SAF") and pioneer of SAF sourced from biogas methane, today reinforced the vital importance of forging a truly sustainable future for global aviation through the development and commercialization of SAF that creates positive environmental and social impact. SkyNRG Americas' call to action occurs ahead of the UN Climate Change Conference ("COP26") Transport Day on November 10.

SkyNRG Americas President and CEO John Plaza said, "The aviation industry contributes approximately 11% of global transportation-related CO2 emissions, an unsustainable level for an industry with steady demand in advanced economies and an accelerated growth profile in emerging markets. Sustainable aviation fuel is thus critical to the industry's future, and it is more important than ever that we replace fossil fuels with SAF solutions that are both commercially viable and beneficial for the environment. As transport leaders gather at COP26, we encourage them to coalesce around standards to ensure that SAF doesn't just replace fossil fuels but, rather, affirmatively contributes to a healthier planet."

Sustainable Aviation Standards
Amid the aviation industry's accelerated production and use of SAF, SkyNRG Americas believes that the industry must work vigilantly to ensure that SAF options are, in fact, demonstrably and sustainably superior to the fossil fuels they purport to replace. Consistent with this approach, the industry should develop and commercialize SAF feedstock options that:

SkyNRG Americas incorporates these standards through a differentiated, future-proofed SAF solution that captures fugitive methane from landfills and other biogas sources and converts both the methane and CO2 in biogas to jet fuel and renewable diesel. This solution gives these emissions a valuable second life as sustainable aviation fuel, while simultaneously reducing the amount of methane released into Earth's atmosphere. The company currently has commercial partnerships with Boeing and Alaska Airlines, among others.

About SkyNRG Americas 
SkyNRG Americas is headquartered in Bend, Oregon and consists of a dedicated team of industry-leading professionals focused on developing and building sustainable aviation fuel production facilities throughout North America. These new SAF production facilities will lead to an increased supply of domestically produced SAF with feedstocks sourced from raw biogas and renewable energy. Learn more at: www.skynrgamericas.com.
