The joint Total-Amyris program launched in 2010 produces bio-jet fuel, made from renewable raw materials. Production and marketing of the farnesane molecule has already begun in Brazil and is expected to reach a much larger scale by 2020.


Farnesane is mixed with conventional Jet fuel at a ratio of up to 10%.It has been demonstrated after engine tests and flight tests that it is a reliable fuel in commercial applications.

The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) has issued a revised standard which now includes the use of renewable farnesane as a blending component in jet fuels for commercial aviation.

The fuel has been tested by major commercial airlines such as Air FRANCE, ETIHAD and LUFTHANSA.

This biofuel is now used regularly in commercial flights between Toulouse and Paris.
