  • Airlines are confident of having sufficient supplies of biofuel-infused jet fuel to comply with a Norway requirement which takes effect next year, although they warn of additional costs.
  • From January, jet fuel suppliers in Norway must blend 0.5% of biofuel in all their aviation fuel, a policy Oslo hopes will boost supply and demand and lead to lower CO2 emissions.
  • SAS expects Norway’s 0.5% biofuel requirement to mean an additional 3 million euro ($3.33 million) in annual fuel costs.
