We love aviation

SkyNRG Americas is an industry-leading team of experts in the field of biofuels and aviation innovation. We have been leaders of the Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) industry for the last 15+ years, and now our collective focus is growing a company that pioneers the energy revolution and transform the aviation industry. Our relationship with each other, our parent company, SkyNRG, and our partners are based on trust, transparency and integrity.

Our approach to sustainability, scale, and success is collaborative. Every production facility has a unique profile, and we leverage our expertise to optimize each one for partner success. For SAF to take off, we need everyone to succeed.

We pursue innovation

When humans face challenges, we most often prosper by addressing our problems with new solutions. 100 years ago, the idea of flying to the other side of the planet in one day was unthinkable. Now it is a daily occurrence from anywhere on the globe. Consider the transitions within the industrial revolution alone, from steam to solar energy, the transistor radio to the modern smartphone, the Kittyhawk to the Boeing 787. We thrive when we innovate. Climate-smart technologies available today like SAF can power aviation into the 21st century.

We treasure the planet

In the future we envision, SAF offers one of the most impactful areas of technological innovation within aviation. Our company’s promise is to mitigate aviation’s carbon footprint and assume the moral imperative of beneficial growth while doing no harm. Sustainable aviation fuel is the next frontier. The journey is just beginning and we hope you will get on board.

First the Netherlands, now North America

As a global market leader for Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) over the last decade, SkyNRG, based in the Netherlands, has set out to build a self-sustaining network of regional supply chains, known as Direct Supply Lines (DSLs). A DSL is a supply chain for SAF that consists of local feedstocks, a commercially-scaled SAF production plant, and long-term offtake partners to support the financing of the project. SkyNRG Americas shares this mission to develop and build a pipeline of DSL units in North America. Our first region of focus will be in the Pacific Northwest to supply the major airports in the West Coast of North America.

SkyNRG Americas, inc. Headquartered in Bend, Oregon

SkyNRG Americas, Inc. is a new company headquartered in Bend, Oregon, and is supported by SkyNRG. SkyNRG Americas consists of a dedicated team of experienced industry-leading professionals focused on building dedicated SAF production facilities throughout North America. We plan to analyze, develop, and execute commercial-scale SAF production projects by creating investment-grade business cases that meet the goals of our shareholders, our partners, and the clean energy transition that aviation needs now. These new North American SAF production facilities will lead to increased supply for SkyNRG’s global network, a perfect fit with SKyNRG’s ambition to supply SAF to the aviation industry across the globe.

With each step, we will maintain our stringent sustainability standards while also requiring a business approach based on economic success for our customers, partners, and shareholders. We are focused on selecting locations, feedstocks, and specific technologies for regional production facilities based on the synergies of the area, thereby ensuring that they are developed as replicable and profitable business models for each location. We are supported and advised by SkyNRG on sustainability, market development, and off-take contracts for the fuel, and we adhere to the stringent sustainability standards that SkyNRG has co-created and embraced globally with the help of leading NGOs and policymakers.
