Dynamic Fuels will help make aviation history when KLM Royal Dutch Airlines begins commercial operations on fuel produced at Dynamic's Geismar plant. In September, KLM will begin flying a series of more than 200 commercial flights between Amsterdam and Paris powered by renewable jet fuel.

These commercial flights follow rigorous renewable jet fuel testing and certification work conducted by the Air Force Research Laboratory, Rolls-Royce Group, and Cessna Aircraft Co., on fuel produced by Dynamic Fuels.

"This relationship demonstrates continued success building Dynamic Fuels, and further illustrates the promise of advanced biofuels," said Bob Ames, vice president of Renewable Energy for Tyson Foods.

"The production of 'drop in' renewable fuels which are a direct replacement for petroleum based fuels is a major milestone in the commercial deployment of advanced technologies," said Jeff Bigger, senior vice president of Business Development for Syntroleum.

The plant uses Syntroleum's Bio-Synfining Technology to produce the renewable fuels from feedstocks produced or procured by Tyson Foods.
