Eni and Milan airports operator expand SAF agreement to include commercial flights

In Italy, Eni and SEA, the Milan Malpensa and Milan Linate airports operator, have signed an agreement to promote decarbonization initiatives in the aviation sector and accelerate the ecological transition of the two airports.

The agreement stems from a collaboration that first began in December 2021 with the supply of biofuels (SAFs) for private flights. The collaboration has been extended to commercial flights too and includes the supply of pure HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) biofuel for ground transportation, as well as a joint development program for smart mobility services. These products and services support the reduction of emissions from airport operations (scope 1 and scope 2) and the decarbonization of airport-related air and ground transport (scope 3).

Eni is the second-largest producer of HVO biofuel in Europe. Its proprietary EcofiningTM technology allows it to produce sustainable aviation fuels (SAFs) from waste and plant-based raw materials. Eni’s new “net zero carbon by 2050” strategy will enable it to provide a range of fully decarbonized products, combining environmental and financial sustainability.
