Avfuel Corporation and Atlantic Aviation have expanded their sustainable aviation fuel supply agreement to include continuous inventory of Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel at all four of Atlantic’s Colorado locations.
While the two companies announced continuous supply of Neste MY SAF at Atlantic’s Aspen facility (KASE) in the spring of 2021, this agreement expands the supply to Atlantic’s Montrose (KMTJ), Hayden/Steamboat (KHDN) and Aspen/Rifle (KRIL) FBOs.
“Sustainability is so much more than a buzzword to us,” said Brian Corbett, chief commercial and sustainability officer for Atlantic Aviation. “We view SAF as the most viable and impactful step toward enabling a greener future for our industry, and are committed to supporting customer sustainability goals accordingly. Striving to reduce our impact on the environment is a promise we’ve made to our customers, our staff and the communities we serve …. We know environmental sustainability is vitally important in our mountains.”
Keith Sawyer, Avfuel’s manager of alternative fuels said, “We could not be more proud to expand SAF’s availability through this partnership with Atlantic Aviation; furthermore, we’re incredibly appreciative of its team, which has worked tirelessly to further sustainability initiatives. Together, we can support a cleaner aviation for a brighter future.”
With one of the highest average blend ratios available in business aviation to date (30/70 SAF to petroleum-based jet fuel), each truckload of Neste MY SAF reduces carbon emissions by 19 metric tons across its lifecycle. This reduction is equivalent to the amount of carbon sequestered by 22.5 acres of U.S. forests per year.
Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel can reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by up to 80% compared to fossil jet fuel if used in its neat, concentrated form. It is made from 100% sustainably sourced, renewable waste and residue raw 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 an optimum solution to directly reduce greenhouse gas emissions from air travel, requiring no new investments, modifications or changes to aircraft, fuel distribution procedures or airport fuel storage tanks. It is a today solution, commercially available and in use worldwide.
