Dutch airline KLM has operated what is considered to be the world’s first commercial passenger flight on sustainable synthetic kerosene.

The flight from Amsterdam to Madrid used 500 litres of this type of fuel. 

Shell has produced synthetic kerosene in its research centre in Amsterdam based on carbon dioxide, water, solar and wind energy.

The Dutch government has supported various initiatives, including the construction of the first European factory for sustainable biokerosene.
