Atlantic continues renewable drive with diesel switch
Renewable diesel will be used primarily in ground support equipment operated by Atlantic Aviation and customers. The product is derived from fats, vegetable oils and cooking oils and can be used interchangeably.

Atlantic Aviation has introduced renewable diesel and the elimination of fossil-based diesel at its Los Angeles International airport (LAX) FBO. The change is part of Atlantic's commitment to increasing sustainability in the aviation industry.

“Effective this month, we are replacing 100 per cent of our fossil-based diesel fuel with renewable diesel,” says Steve Hirschfeld, senior VP. “The change will reduce carbon emissions on the airport by over eight million pounds annually, or the equivalent of that produced by approximately 795 automobiles.”

Renewable diesel will be utilised primarily in ground support equipment operated by Atlantic Aviation and its customers. The product is derived from fats, vegetable oils and waste cooking oils and can be used interchangeably with traditional diesel fuel.

The introduction of renewable diesel is the latest step in Atlantic Aviation's comprehensive Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) programme and follows the company's first delivery of SAF at LAX in late March of this year.
