Schiphol Airport’s Ground Vehicles to Run on Waste-Based Fuel

Ground transportation vehicles at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport will start being powered by diesel made from waste products.

The 30 percent waste-based diesel is being provided by SkyNRG, a clean jet fuel supplier backed by Air France-KLM (AF) Group, SkyNRG said today in an e-mailed statement. It will result in a 25 percent reduction in carbon dioxide, it said. The move follows tests conducted at the airport in 2011 to 2012 when 45 vehicles used 100 percent clean diesel.

The fuel is a co-product of SkyNRG’s renewable jet fuel process. The company already has provided fuel to Finnair Oyj (FIA1S), Alaska Airlines Inc., and Thomson Airways Ltd.
