Norway's Avinor obtaining tenders for how to establish local aviation biofuel production


Aviation biofuel is becoming big business. Over the past few years, a variety of airlines have tested drop-in biofuels, as part of the answer to the challenges of the price volatility of conventional fossil fuels and minimising the environmental impact of aviation. Life-cycle-assessments of biofuels have shown a wide range of net greenhouse gas savings compared to traditional fossil fuels.

Now Norwegian airports company and air navigation service provider Avinor has decided to get involved in a forward-looking biofuel programme.
