Budget carrier Ryanair has agreed a new deal with biofuel specialist Enilive for the supply of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to airports it operates from in Italy.

The agreement will allow Ryanair access to up to 100,000 tons of SAF between 2025 and 2030, which would fuel the equivalent of 20,000 flights from Milan to Dublin.

Enilive, owned by Italian energy giant Eni, uses feedstocks such as cooking oil, animal fats and agro-food industry waste to produce its Eni Biojet fuel, which can be blended up to 50 per cent with normal jet fuel.

Thomas Fowler, Ryanair’s director of sustainability, said: “Increasing the production of SAF is a key challenge that the industry faces over the coming years. Partnering with an industry leader like Eni will help Ryanair achieve our ambitious goal of using 12.5 per cent SAF by 2030 and net zero emissions by 2050.”

Stefano Ballista, CEO of Enilive, said the company plans to increase its refining capacity to produce more than 5 million tons of biofuels per year by 2030.

“The plants and the technologies we have developed over the last decade enable Enilive to produce the necessary amounts of SAF to meet the needs of companies as Ryanair and the requirements of the EU regulations,” added Ballista.
