Avfuel Corporation has delivered sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to Atlantic Aviation at New Castle airport for one of the airport's private flight department tenants. This marks the fuel supplier's first such delivery for a corporate flight department customer following an array of demonstrations with FBOs, airports, OEMs and charter companies.

Delivered on 9 September, the 7,300 gallon load of SAF could lead to a two metric tonne reduction in CO2 emissions for the customer, supporting a mutual mission to advance sustainability goals.

“We are excited to expand our portfolio of SAF supply to include corporate flight departments, along with FBOs, OEMs and others,” says Jonathan Boyle, Avfuel's VP of contract fuel. “It's indicative of the continued interest we're seeing in sustainability measures throughout business aviation. We are appreciative of the Atlantic Aviation team and our loyal customer for their collaboration in this important demonstration; Avfuel is proud to partner with these operations as a step toward making sustainable aviation fuel more attainable.”

This latest off-take demonstration comes ahead of the Virtual 2020 Business Aviation Sustainability Summit in which Avfuel is a featured panelist.

Avfuel sources its concentrated SAF from Gevo and blends it with petroleum-based jet fuel. This mixture is then tested for fuel quality and to ensure it meets ASTM D1655 standards. The product has a net benefit to the environment across its lifecycle. Created from corn starch, for every one million gallons of the concentrated SAF that is produced, approximately 10 million pounds of animal feed and protein is sold into the food chain, and the final jet fuel product burns cleaner, reducing carbon emissions released into the atmosphere.

Avfuel has a dedicated team of professionals working diligently to source, test, blend and ship SAF for special off take demonstrations and events throughout the business aviation community. To combat the issue of availability, the greatest hurdle to SAF's widespread adoption, Avfuel is continuing to raise awareness with the hope of inspiring commitments to further encourage production.
