Avfuel is to make sustainable aviation fuel available to operators fueling at Jackson Hole Aviation on September 3 and 4.
The aviation fuel and services provider will supply 7,300 gallons of its concentrated sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), sourced from biofuel developer Gevo, to the FBO to fuel operators flying in and out of the airfield during the demonstration days.
“We’re committed to raising awareness on the viability of sustainable aviation fuel,” said Keith Sawyer, manager of alternative fuels for Avfuel. “Events like these show that the product exists, it is safe, it is simply jet fuel and it provides a great benefit to our environment. By raising awareness, we’re hoping to garner commitments from more operators to use SAF and present those commitments to producers, in essence saying: ‘Here are our customers. The demand is there. We simply need the supply.’”
This SAF demonstration is held in conjunction with the airport’s ribbon cutting ceremony for its new underground stormwater detention and filtration system on September 3.
The new system will capture stormwater runoff from both the operational and public areas of the airport, preserving the land and environment surrounding the airport.
