Accelerating commercial access to sustainable jet fuel will lead to reduced emissions. The outcome is aimed primarily at airlines in the Nordic countries, and of course other off-takers. This will benefit society as a whole to a great extent since the developments described also generates jobs and further development of advanced new technology.

Fall 2014: Several of NISA's members have been involved in a number of biofuel blend promotional flights, and in agreements on the establishment of biofuel airports. The plan is that these airports should be able to deliver a limited but continuous blend in of biofuel for the airlines who are interested and willing to sign for deliveries. It will initially be an additional cost for the proportion of biofuel.
The Danish Energy Agency, in cooperation with NISA, has initiated a Nordic study entitled "Nordic perspectives on the use of advanced sustainable jet fuel for aviation." The project's timeframe is mid-2015 to mid-2016. Representatives from all the Nordic Energy/Transport authorities are participating in the project. The main purposes of the project are to:
The study is funded by the Nordic Counsil of Ministers / Nordic Energy Research and the project management is handled by the Danish Energy Agency.
NISA is also committed to the establishment of a Nordic biofuel fund, Fly Green Fund Nordic, which aims to engage customers in contributing to the purchase of available biofuel and to support the development of new productions and research.
