Truckee Tahoe makes SAF available to visiting aircraft
Truckee Tahoe Airport District received its first delivery of Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel from Avfuel on 28 April. Each truckload of 8,000 gallons of Avfuel's Neste MY SAF provides a 22 tonne carbon reduction.
SAF is the most effective way to reduce a flight's carbon footprint.

In an effort to expand the reach of SAF throughout the industry and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the region, Avfuel Corporation and Truckee Tahoe Airport District, an Avfuel-branded fuel provider located near Lake Tahoe in California, have partnered to provide a consistent supply of the fuel to the Truckee aviation community.

Truckee Tahoe is the first general aviation airport in its region to make SAF available for jet and turbine aircraft, significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions and aligning with the airport's sustainability goals.

Truckee Tahoe Airport District has long practised good stewardship with its community, helping to protect our serene environment,” says GM Kevin Smith. “As such, the airport has implemented a greenhouse gas reduction initiative that now includes SAF, the most effective way to directly reduce emissions. We are proud to partner with Avfuel on this initiative, doing our part to help make the world a cleaner place and our industry realise its carbon emission reduction goals.”

Truckee Tahoe Airport District received its first delivery of Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel from Avfuel on 28 April. Each truckload of approximately 8,000 gallons of Avfuel's Neste MY SAF provides a 22 metric tonne reduction in carbon emissions over its lifecycle, which is the equivalent of making five passenger vehicles zero emissions for one year. SAF is the most effective way to reduce a flight's carbon footprint. In the future, SAF could deliver up to 80 per cent less greenhouse gas emissions over its lifecycle versus traditional jet fuel if used in its neat form.

Avfuel alternative fuels manager Keith Sawyer comments: “We are excited to work with the Truckee Tahoe Airport District in expanding the reach of SAF. Together, we're providing a cleaner solution that both provides significant emissions reductions and provides an educational opportunity on the environmental benefits and safety of the fuel.”

Neste MY SAF is made from sustainably sourced, renewable waste and residue materials, such as used cooking oil. It is a fully approved drop-in fuel that, once blended with petroleum jet fuel, meets ASTM D-1655 specification for conventional jet fuel and performance standards under all operating conditions. This makes Neste MY SAF a solution to directly reduce greenhouse gas emissions from aircraft, requiring no new investments, modifications or changes to the aircraft, fuel distribution procedures or airport fuel storage tanks.
