GOL to use Amyris – Total Aviation Biofuel on revenue-earning flights

Brazilian airline GOL has partnered with Amyris Biotechnologies to begin the first commercial flights with “farnesane”, the recently-approved renewable jet fuel.

GOL has committed to fly its B737 fleet with up to a 10% blend of the renewable fuel on its Brazil-US routes starting with initial flights later this month.

John Melo, President & CEO at Amyris, said: “We at Amyris are thrilled that GOL will be using our renewable jet fuel blend for their flight route from the United States to Brazil, the first of what we expect to be many routes with the world’s airlines. With our partner Total, Amyris is working to support the performance goals set by the aviation industry by bringing to market a drop-in, low-carbon jet fuel solution.”
