GOL to Make First International Commercial Flights with Newly Approved Amyris-Total Aviation Biofuel

Amyris has partnered with GOL to begin the first commercial route with farnesane, the recently approved renewable jet fuel. GOL has committed to fly its Boeing 737 fleet with up to a 10% blend of the renewable fuel on its U.S. to Brazil routes starting with initial flights later this month. Supported by Boeing, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and other partners, Amyris is working to bring this new, renewable jet fuel to commercial airlines starting with Brazil's GOL Airlines.

Total and Amyris Renewable Jet Fuel Ready for Use in Commercial Aviation

Amyris and Total begin to prepare to market a drop-in jet fuel that contains up to 10% blends of renewable farnesane. Developed by Total and Amyris this new jet fuel blend meets the rigorous performance requirements set for Jet A/A-1 fuel used by the global commercial aviation industry. The ability of this renewable jet fuel to meet the criteria in the definitive standard for use in commercial aviation is a significant milestone in the ongoing collaboration between Amyris and Total. It unleashes the potential of renewable jet fuel for the commercial aviation market, said Philippe Boisseau, Member of the Executive Committee of Total, President of Marketing & Services and New Energies divisions. The revised standard, D7566, developed by ASTM Committee on Petroleum Products, Liquid Fuels, and Lubricants, now includes the use of renewable farnesane as a blending component in jet fuels for commercial aviation. This latest version of ASTM D7566, Standard Specification for Aviation Turbine Fuel Containing Synthesized Hydrocarbons, will allow a biomass-based renewable jet fuel, as developed by Amyris and Total, to support the commercial airliners' goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. This renewable fuel meets jet fuel strict specifications and bears favorable properties such as low freezing point, high thermostability and high net heat of combustion. The Brazilian fuels regulator, ANP, has indicated it will include this renewable fuel as option among the other alternative aviation fuels already allowed in the national specification.
