Avfuel supplies SAF for Dassault, Embraer and Textron aircraft flying to EBACE
Avfuel supplied Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) for Dassault, Embraer and Textron aircraft flying to EBACE. All flew across the Atlantic using a blend of Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel.
The fuel company arranged deliveries to Wichita, Kansas, Little Rock, Arkansas and Melbourne, Florida. Avfuel says that with an average blend ratio of 30% SAF to petroleum-based jet fuel, SAF provided a 76t (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.
Avfuel also worked with Atlantic Aviation in White Plains, New York to offer flight operators headed to EBACE the benefits of SAF through a book and claim arrangement.
Some 13 Avfuel Network FBOs regularly offer SAF in the US.
“I’m proud of the work in sustainability we’ve accomplished, both in terms of the sustainable programmes we offer our customers and in the efforts we make as a company to reduce our footprint,” said Marci Ammerman, Avfuel’s vice president of Marketing. “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.”
