Summary

GOL to use Amyris sugar-to-alkane jet fuel

GOL has committed to fly its Boeing 737 fleet with up to a 10 percent blend of the renewable fuel on its U.S. to Brazil routes starting with initial flights later this month. Supported by Boeing, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and other partners, Amyris is working to bring this new, renewable jet fuel to commercial airlines starting with Brazil's GOL Airlines.

The new jet fuel, developed by Amyris together with Total, was approved by ASTM on June 2014 as Synthesized Iso-Paraffin (SIP). It is a farnesane molecule produced from sugar through advanced fermentation.

GOL is working with the Brazilian Biojet Fuel Platform to achieve a 1% blend milestone in early 2016, begining with more than 200 flights during the FIFA World Cup.
