Avfuel Corporation took on the SAF needs of OEMs, FBOs and flight departments ahead of the EBACE 2023.  Avfuel collaborated with three of the industry’s major aircraft original equipment manufacturers—Dassault Falcon Jet, Embraer and Textron—to provide their flight departments with Neste MY Sustainable Aviation FuelTM in North America prior to their trans-Atlantic trip to Geneva. The logistics of doing so was no small feat. The SAF deliveries spanned from Wichita, Kansas, (KICT) in mid-America, down to Little Rock, Arkansas, (KLIT) and Melbourne, Florida, (KMLB) at its most southeasterly point.  With an average blend ratio of 30% SAF to petroleum-based jet fuel, the EBACE-designated fuel deliveries (four truckloads in total) provide a 76 metric ton reduction in carbon emissions over the fuel’s lifecycle. This is the equivalent of the amount of carbon emissions created by consuming 176 barrels of oil.

In addition to providing the physical SAF molecules to OEMs, Avfuel also collaborated with Atlantic Aviation in White Plains, New York, (KHPN) to offer flight operators headed to EBACE the benefits of SAF through a book and claim arrangement.  While Avfuel leads SAF availability in North America, it’s working with its production partner, Neste, on European availability. Neste is based in both Helsinki in Finland and Rotterdam in the Netherlands. SAF supply for business aviation in the EU continues to be of a particular challenge as its supply chain for business aviation service providers is unique to anywhere else. Avfuel and Neste are committed to navigating this challenge with the aim to help business aviation attain its sustainability goals globally. 

Avfuel’s commitment to sustainability also extends beyond SAF. Avfuel works every day on a number of internal and external-facing sustainability solutions in addition to SAF, including carbon offsetting, unleaded avgas and the company’s own emissions reduction efforts.

Marci Ammerman, Avfuel’s vice president of marketing, commented “I’m proud of the work in sustainability we’ve accomplished, both in terms of the sustainable programs we offer our customers and in the efforts we make as a company to reduce our footprint; Sustainability is now at the core of our operations—it’s not just another selling point or a mere ideal. We are profoundly committed to bettering the health of our world by identifying and adopting green alternatives.”
