DOHA: As part of its effort to meet the world’s growing demand for cleaner energy, Qatar Jet Fuel Company (QJet) yesterday announced of its first delivery of Gas-to-Liquid (GTL) jet fuel to Qatar Airways (QA), said a press statement.
GTL Jet A-1 is a blend of GTL; an ultra-clean low emissions jet fuel derived from natural gas, and conventional Jet fuel. QJet said it is proud to be a partner in this national event of pride.
“Fuel is the driver of energy in our lives, whether it is a product of coal burning in some simple life styles somewhere in the world, or complicated, like pioneering with GTL in taking you up in an airplane. Nowadays, it seems that we in Qatar are taking the lead in working with dreamers, scientists, engineers, and aspired management to fuel life in the air. Thanks to the dreamers, we are moving ahead,” said the statement.
“Scientists have been on the defensive screaming about the environment and warning humanity of the growing damage caused by many forms of the sources of energy. Unlike those sources, GTL fuel is much cleaner for the environment than conventional jet fuel made from petroleum,” the statement said.
