JETEX INTRODUCES SUSTAINABLE AVIATION FUEL BOOK & CLAIM

Jetex signs a milestone agreement with 360 Jet Fuel Ltd. to offer sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) book and claim option to its customers globally. Through the innovative 360 GREEN FUEL book and claim platform, Jetex aims to offer greater flexibility and accessibility to SAF.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, May 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Jetex entered in an agreement with 360 Jet Fuel Ltd. to offer its customers more flexibility and wider access to sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).

SAF is a liquid fuel currently used in commercial aviation which reduces CO2 emissions by up to 80%. It can be produced from a number of sources including waste oil and fats, green and municipal waste and non-food crops. It can also be produced synthetically via a process that captures carbon directly from the air.

Part of what makes SAF sustainable is ensuring sustainability in its supply chain. Transporting SAF to a specific airport or flight is not always possible and could lead to higher greenhouse gas emissions. The Book & Claim system provides a solution for these situations.

The new 360 GREEN FUEL book & claim system allows Jetex customers to source SAF based on their total aviation footprint in one transaction, rather than sourcing through each location individually. This means that SAF can be sourced for flights out of airports that do not have SAF supply available.

Sourcing SAF on a Book & Claim basis will allow purchasing any volume of SAF, including 100% of fuel needs or a carbon neutral scenario, without technical limitations such as blending limits.

Jetex customers will be able to claim the C02 emission reduction they achieved by the amount of fossil fuel replaced with SAF acquired They will receive a certificate specifying the amount of SAF purchased and an audited statement outlining the corresponding CO2 reduction. This documentation can be utilized for sustainability reporting purposes.

To ensure credibility and verifiable emission reductions, 360 Jet Fuel sources physical SAF quantities from ISCC+ certified suppliers, guaranteeing full traceability of the claimed amounts, and ensures delivery to an airline partner within the aviation sector. The solution provided by 360 Jet Fuel undergoes rigorous third-party auditing, ensuring traceability to each delivery batch and eliminating any doubts of double claiming.

The new agreement takes Jetex a step closer to being fully carbon-neutral globally and is aligned with IATA’s commitment to achieving 65% SAF share by 2050.

‘Nüshu’: The secret language of women in China

"Nüshu", or "women's book", is a writing system that was kept secret for centuries. In feudal China – when women were denied an education, bound to their husbands and rarely left their homes – they developed their own language. This written code allowed them to communicate without being understood by men. Nüshu has almost disappeared but today, in the region where it was born, some women are striving to keep it alive. Our correspondents report from Hunan province.

G20 meeting in Srinagar violation of UN resolutions on Kashmir: FM Bilawal

Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has termed the holding of G-20 moot in the disputed territory of Indian illegally occupied Kashmir as an utter violation of the UN resolutions.

Addressing the special session of Azad Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly in Muzaffarabad, he said the disputed status of Jammu and Kashmir is internationally recognized.

The Foreign Minister said it was decided that the final disposition of the state shall be made through a free and impartial plebiscite under the UN auspices.

He said the people of Jammu and Kashmir have been denied their basic right to self-determination for decades and now such a meeting in the world's most militarized zone cannot prove that normalcy has returned in the region.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said history cannot be changed through such cheap acts as Jammu and Kashmir was forcibly occupied by India.

He said India is misusing its position as Chair of the G-20, with utter disregard for the UN Security Council resolution, the UN Charter and its principles.

He said Pakistan cannot ignore what happens in Jammu and Kashmir, as it is a party to the dispute.

PM stresses need to show no leniency to perpetrators of arsons on May 9

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has made it clear that rioters involved in attacking military installations will be tried under the Army Act, whereas others will be dealt under Anti-Terrorism Act.

Speaking on the floor of the National Assembly, he said we have no vendetta against anyone but those, who desecrated the monuments of our martyrs and heroes as well as ransacked civilian properties, will not be spared.

He said such elements must be brought to justice.

Acknowledging sacrifices and contribution of the armed forces, Shehbaz Sharif said today he inaugurated the National Games in Quetta after a gap of 19 years and this dream was materialized as a result of security forces' efforts.

Responding to PTI Chief Imran Khan’s tweet, the Prime Minister said that he can say with complete responsibility that Army Chief Syed Asim Munir, when he was serving as the Director General of Inter-Services Intelligence, had shown evidence of corruption of Imran Niazi’s wife. He said that had enraged Imran Niazi and the rest is history.

Shehbaz Sharif said that Imran Niazi is once again misleading the people of Pakistan through his white lies. He questioned how the nation can forget the corruption of sixty billion rupees committed by Imran Niazi.

The National Assembly passed a resolution condemning the shocking, brazen, heart-wrenching and shameless incidents, which took place on 9th May 2023.

The Resolution moved by Defence Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif said these incidents tarnished the national image of the country.

Expressing its full faith in and complete solidarity and support for the armed forces of Pakistan, the House resolved that 9th May be reckoned as the Black Day.

It said all abettors, planners, facilitators and those directly or indirectly involved in arson and ransacking military installations as well as public and private properties should be prosecuted and tried under the existing laws of the country, including the Anti-Terrorism Act 1997, Army Act 1952, and Pakistan Penal Code 1860.

The House urged all relevant authorities to implement social media rules and regulations in order to tackle propaganda being unleashed against the country's institutions both from within and outside of Pakistan under the patronage and facilitation from multiple players. Those involved in such propaganda campaigns should strictly be dealt with as per law.

The National Assembly reiterated its commitment to national unity, harmony and integrity in the wake of current geostrategic situation and deprecate all anti-state elements which attempt to destabilize the country, and it also emphasized that resolution of all political issues must always stay within the realm of parliamentary and democratic norms and resorting to violence against state institutions, public and private properties is totally unacceptable.

The House also passed another resolution moved by Maulana Abdul Akbar Chitrali, condemning the suicide attack on Jamaat-e-Islami Chief Sirajul Haq.

The National Assembly was informed that the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting is making all out efforts to promote national cohesion and projects Pakistan’s soft, progressive and democratic image within and outside the country.

This was stated by Parliamentary Secretary on Information and Broadcasting Muhammad Shahbaz Babar while responding to a question during the Question Hour.

He said all the organizations and departments attached with the ministry, including Press Information Department, Radio Pakistan, Pakistan Television, Associated Press of Pakistan, are striving hard to promote national narrative.

He said Radio Pakistan being the national broadcaster counters propaganda against the state in various languages. He said all these platforms have strong digital footprints.

Responding to a calling attention notice, Minister for Narcotics Control Nawabzada Shazain Bugti said the federal government, with the cooperation of provinces, is taking all possible measures to control sale of ice and other drugs in the country.

He said the government is working on conducting random drug tests in educational institutions to have an updated data about drug users so that effective strategies can be evolved to control this menace.

Those who spoke on the occasion included Naz Baloch, Engineer Sabir Hussain Kaimkhani, Salahuddin Ayubi, Mir Ghulam Ali Talpur, Ali Wazir, Abdul Qadir Mandokhel, and Kesoo Mal Kheeal Das.

The House will again meet on Tuesday at 1:30 pm.
