Cepsa and Binter signed an agreement to promote the decarbonization of the aviation sector in Spain through the development and research of sustainable aviation fuels.
Cepsa is one of the main suppliers of aviation fuels in the Spanish market, more specifically in the islands. Binter, a regional airline, has made sustainability its main priority and has been studying and implementing ways to reduce the impact of its activity on the environment.
The partnership will develop other energy alternatives, like renewable hydrogen and electrification for the airline's ground fleets. In addition, it will also promote the sustainability of air transport from one of the main tourist regions in Spain and the world, Gran Canaria.
"With this alliance, we take a very important step in Binter's goal to provide air transport service in the most sustainable way possible. To do this, it is essential to promote the consumption of new fuels with low environmental impact, which we will soon be able to start applying to our flights thanks to our joint work with Cepsa," says President of Binter, Rodolfo Núñez,
Pierre-Yves Sachet, Cepsa's director of mobility and new commerce says, "At Cepsa, we work to provide innovative solutions that promote sustainable mobility. This agreement is a good example of that commitment and also contributes to the competitiveness of Spain's tourism sector, where the Canary Islands is a major reference."
This development has been a priority for both companies as a tool to ultimately reduce the carbon footprint of air transport and contribute to the fight against climate change.
