As of 2022, biokerosene factory SkyNRG should be up and running in Delfzijl. The company creates sustainable jet fuel for KLM.

RTV Noord reports that the company, which works together with Dutch national airline KLM, SHV Energy and Schiphol, aims to contribute to reducing carbon dioxide output in the air travel industry.
The Groninger Internet Courant reports that SkyNRG relies on waste products such as used cooking oil to create the biokerosene. The greener fuel alternative is up to three times more expensive than conventional kerosene, and as such, it is not yet a widely used fuel source.
The possible establishment of the facility in the province was first announced back in October: Delfzijl, Rotterdam and Amsterdam were in the running to become home to the factory. The Algemeen Dagblad reported at the time that the factory would mean an investment of between 5 and 10 million euros.
