United Airlines previously signed a three-year off-take agreement for 15 million gallons of biojet fuel from AltAir in 2013 and has now renewed the agreement for two years and 10 million gallons from World Energy, which acquired AltAir's facility in 2018. This renewal indicates that biojet fuel is not just a one-off opportunity for airlines, as stakeholders in the industry sometimes infer from off-take agreements. Biojet fuel adoption continues to increase worldwide, with KLM recently announcing a significant 10-year off-take agreement for 23 million gallons of biojet fuel per year from planned SkyNRG facility in the Netherlands.
