Repsol has produced the first batch of biojet on the Spanish market at its Puertollano Industrial Complex , making it the pioneer company in the manufacture of this sustainable fuel for aviation in Spain.
The first batch consists of 7,000 tons of aviation fuel with a bio component, equivalent to the consumption of 100 Madrid-Los Angeles flights, which will prevent the emission of 440 tons of CO 2 , equivalent to 40 Madrid-Barcelona flights.
The biojet has passed all the tests for this type of product and its manufacture will be extended to other Repsol facilities in Spain. The company will also develop alternatives that will make it possible to obtain jet fuel from waste.
It has a bio content of less than 5% to meet the quality requirements established by international specifications.
