KLM Royal Dutch Airlines
became the first airline in the world to operate a commercial flight on
‘biokerosene,’ which included renewable jet fuel supplied by Dynamic Fuels LLC.
KLM used a 50/50 blend of
conventional jet fuel and renewable jet fuel in both engines of a Boeing
737-800 aircraft that carried 171 passengers from Amsterdam
to Paris. The
flight was a preview of more than 200 commercial flights between Amsterdam and Paris KLM
plans to make in September using the same fuel.
“This is an important
day for Dynamic Fuels and our efforts to demonstrate the performance and
environmental advantages of what we’re producing,” said Bob Ames, vice
president of Renewable Energy for Tyson Foods, one of the owners of Dynamic
Fuels. “We’re pleased with the leadership KLM has shown in its willingness
to use innovative, new fuels like ours.”
Dynamic Fuels is a 50/50
joint venture between Syntroleum Corp. and Tyson Foods Inc.
