Recently, Lufthansa Cargo freighter with the registration D-ALFK took off for the first time under flight number LH8406 to Seoul, South Korea (ICN) with a new flight-ready livery: with the inscription ‘Flying into the Future CO2-neutral’ and the addition ‘Power-to-Liquid Sustainable Aviation Fuel’, logistics service provider Kuehne+Nagel and Europe’s leading cargo airline Lufthansa Cargo are now drawing attention to their joint mission. The two companies are now working together to promote the forward-looking power-to-liquid technology to advance the decarbonisation of air freight.
“We are very pleased to now also visibly express our joint commitment and to publicize it with the help of the global deployment of our freighter. A successful and sustainable transformation of airfreight can only succeed if we join forces with strong partners – which is why we are very proud to have Kuehne+Nagel at our side as a supporter of this forward-looking technology,” said Ms. Dorothea von Boxberg, CEO at Lufthansa Cargo.
Mr. Yngve Ruud, Member of the Management Board of Kuehne+Nagel also added “With the new Boeing 777 freighter D-ALFK in Kuehne+Nagel’s livery, we are sending a strong signal our company’s commitment to sustainable airfreight. We are already seeing a great deal of interest from our customers who want to avoid the carbon emissions of their shipments worldwide and the synthetic SAF project with Lufthansa Cargo is of utmost importance for our joint mission of CO2-neutral aviation.”
The logistics service providers have jointly committed to supporting the world’s first production site for synthetic crude oil in Werlte/Emsland in Germany by purchasing the equivalent of 20 metric tons, or 25,000 liters, annually. The synthetic fuel is expected to further reduce the CO2 footprint of aircraft engines in the future. The production site in Werlte is operated by the Bonn-based NGO atmosfair, the first quantities of crude oil are to be produced this year and used as synthetic fuel in aviation.
CO2-neutral fuels or Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) are an essential pillar of CO2-neutral flying. At Lufthansa Cargo and Kühne+Nagel, they used Sustainable Aviation Fuels of biogenic origin such as synthetic kerosene based on used cooking oils.
