  • Repsol has produced a batch of biofuel, a sustainable fuel for aviation, at its industrial complex in Tarragona. This is the second batch of this type produced in Spain.
  • The batch consists of 10,000 tons of fuel with a bio component for aviation, and it will avoid the emission of 630 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere, the equivalent of 55 flights between Madrid and Barcelona.
  • The produced biojet fuel has passed the stringent tests required for this type of products, and its manufacture will be extended to other Repsol facilities in Spain. The company is also developing alternatives that will make it possible to obtain fuel for aircraft from waste.
  • With this new initiative Repsol is strengthening its role as an important player in the energy transition, in line with its commitment to become a net-zero emissions company by 2050.
