JetBlue and Fidelis New Energy sign agreement for 92 million gallons of SAF


JetBlue has confirmed that it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Fidelis New Energy (Fidelis) to provide JetBlue with at least 92 million gallons of blended sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) from Fidelis’ Grön Fuels GigaSystem™ at the Port of Greater Baton Rouge in Louisiana. This SAF is expected to be delivered over a five-year term with a targeted start date of 2025.

Designed to be the largest and highest-efficiency purpose-built renewable fuels facility in North America, the Grön Fuels GigaSystem will produce an estimated 1 billion gallons per year (65,000 barrels per day) of sustainable aviation fuel, renewable diesel and other low carbon products. Grön Fuels further enhances its efficiency and industry-leading carbon intensity by capturing waste process heat to generate power, producing biogas from by-products and using its highly flexible processing capabilities to produce carbon negative SAF from a wide array of existing and emerging low carbon intensity feedstocks.

“Carbon Negative SAF accelerates the goals of aviation industry participants genuinely committed to decarbonisation like JetBlue in a pragmatic and timely manner.” said Dan Shapiro, Fidelis Co-Founder and CEO. “We are excited to partner the Grön Fuels GigaSystem with JetBlue for the provision of carbon negative SAF to achieve its environmental goals.”
