CEPSA and Etihad work together on creating 'green' airline fuel
Wednesday, November 9, 2022 @ 9:11 AM

SPANISH petroleum giant CEPSA has struck a deal with Etihad airlines to work on carbon-free flights in the near future, and will be undertaking extensive research on how to produce aircraft fuel from clean and renewable sources.

During the ADIPEC exhibition currently taking place in Abu Dhabi, the nationwide service station chain company led by Maarten Wetselaar signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Emirates-based carrier in a bid to achieve one of the key United Nations Agenda 2030 objectives.

Air travel as a major culprit in the climate change crisis has been highlighted in the past few years – largely thanks to young Swedish activist Greta Thunberg, whose high-profile boycott of planes is well documented – but in addition to being a huge industry that provides essential employment in itself and through tourism all over the world, it is impractical for the majority of travellers to avoid.

This is especially true of, for example, foreign nationals living or owning holiday homes in Spain, who need access to regular and affordable flights to be able to continue seeing their family of origin.
