now green e-kerosene
atmosfair is now a producer of fairfuel
In addition to offering a scheme to offset carbon emissions from flying, atmosfair is now also working to reduce the harmful impact of air travel on the climate. Together with strong partners , we have built the world’s first plant to supply carbon-neutral fuel for commercial aviation. The technology largely originates in Germany, but the aim is to deploy it worldwide.
PtL fuels from renewable energy are the most important climate-friendly alternative to fossil-based kerosene in aviation.
For Germany to achieve climate neutrality by 2045, the aviation sector must do it part. PtL fuels from renewable energy are the most important climate-friendly alternative to fossil-based kerosene in aviation. Now that the right conditions have been created, electricity-based liquid aviation fuels are now finding their way out of the laboratory and onto the market.
Your pioneering spirit and commitment show what can be accomplished.
atmosfair shows different ways our carbon footprint in the aviation sector can be improved. Your pioneering spirit and commitment show what can be accomplished.

I am very pleased that atmosfair has developed a quality standard for the production of e-fuel.
Many flights in Europe can be eliminated in the future by taking the train, communicating virtually or foregoing unnecessary travel – but for unavoidable flights on other routes, synthetic, carbon-neutral kerosene is the key to achieving the Paris climate targets in the aviation sector. I am very pleased that atmosfair has also developed a quality standard for e-fuel production that will ensure that production does not jeopardise access to affordable energy or hinder the energy transformation, especially in countries in the Global South.
atmosfair, as an e-kerosene producer, is now becoming a technology pioneer in aviation
Since it is better to avoid CO2 than to offset it, this is what atmosfair rightly expects of itself and its partners. atmosfair, as an e-kerosene producer, is now also becoming a technology pioneer in aviation and is showing energy companies and airlines what can be achieved without government subsidies.

How our fairfuel plant works
Our plant in the town of Werlte in the Emsland region of Germany uses CO2 captured from locally generated wind and solar power, from a biogas plant located directly on the premises and from the air and water to produce synthetic crude kerosene. The refinery in Heide then processes it into Jet A1 kerosene, which is then supplied to the Hamburg airport and used as a carbon-neutral fuel for the air transport system.
Green air travel
CO2-neutral fuel is just one step on the path to green air travel
Flying contributes to anthropogenic climate change in various ways. In addition to CO2, global warming is intensified in particular by the formation of ozone, cirrostratus clouds and contrails. e-kerosene reduces these effects and can also serve as a long-term solution to reaching the Paris climate targets for the aviation sector by changing flight routes. But until this can be achieved, it is better for the climate to fly less, even with e-kerosene.
