August 11, 2011

AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS-Intertek, a provider of quality and safety solutions to a wide range of industries worldwide, has been chosen by sustainable jet fuel producer SkyNRG as its fuel quality and inspection services provider.

Intertek is assisting SkyNRG in the development of a fuel quality assurance program, helping ensure SkyNRG provide its customers with sustainable jet fuel, which is as reliable and safe as traditional petroleum Jet A1 fuel.

Intertek’s testing and inspection services will be provided across the globe, and includes testing of the 100% pure sustainable (bio) jet fuel component along with the final 50% blend with petroleum jet fuel used for commercial flights.

With recent amendments to the ASTM D-7566 specification for synthetic turbine fuel, regular flights using sustainable jet fuel are now possible. The ASTM D-7566 specification is an industry standard for describing aviation turbine fuels and synthetic blending components quality, and can be applied at fuel production, distribution, storage and fuel-transfer points.
