Eni SPA E entered an agreement with Aeroporti di Roma (“ADR”) to support the decarbonization of the aviation sector and accelerate clean energy transitions at airports.

The global aviation industry is responsible for about 2% of the world’s total carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Increasing awareness regarding the social and environmental impacts of the airline operations is a driving factor for the transition toward a low-carbon economy. Hence, airport operators and airlines are under pressure to tackle aviation's carbon footprint in order to contribute to the EU's goal of reducing net-carbon emissions by 55% from 1990 levels by 2030.

Eni and ADR will work on decarbonization and digitalization projects for ADR-managed airports, which include Rome's Fiumicino and Ciampino. Beside this, ADR aims to introduce sustainable fuels for aviation (SAF) and ground handling at Rome airports in the months ahead. This will produce less CO2 emissions compared with fossil fuels.

A joint program will be launched for the development of sustainable mobility and distribution services for end customers. The program will also focus on energy integration projects, in line with advanced transition and digitalization models.

Since 2014, Eni has been producing hydrotreated vegetable oil biofuel at its Venice and Gela bio-refineries with the help of its Ecofoning technology. The company has been converting its refineries in Italy to produce biofuels as part of its plans to become carbon-neutral by 2050. Eni's net-zero emission strategy will make it possible to supply a variety of decarbonized products to help the aviation sector recover as a greener, more sustainable industry.
