In Finland, Neste MY Renewable Jet Fuel won an award for its role in reducing black carbon emissions in a competition jointly organized by the Climate Leadership Coalition, the Bioenergy Association of Finland, the Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra, the Finnish Environment Institute, and the Central Association of Chimney Sweeps.
The purpose of the competition was to find examples of effective ways to reduce black carbon emissions. The competition was divided into five categories, and Neste won in the category for solutions reducing black carbon emissions.
The competition was part of a campaign aimed at speeding up emissions reduction, finding new solutions for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and increasing understanding of how black carbon accelerates climate change.
Neste’s renewable jet fuel can be mixed with fossil fuel up to 50 percent, and so it has good potential to bring about a significant reduction in the amount of black carbon emissions from aviation. More detailed research on the impact of renewable aviation fuel on particulate emissions is ongoing.
