Avfuel has progressed its sustainable fuels initiative by entering an agreement with next generation biofuels company Gevo, effective from July 1, 2018.
With the agreement, Avfuel becomes Gevo’s exclusive aviation fuel distributor of the sustainable alternative jet fuel (SAJF) portion of Gevo’s renewable hydrocarbon products to business aviation and its entire portfolio of customers.
Craig Sincock, owner, president and CEO of Avfuel, said, “As a leader in the global supply of aviation fuel and services, we have a social responsibility to make sustainable alternative jet fuel a reality in the marketplace.
“Our agreement with Gevo is a notable component in our overall strategy to support our industry’s commitment to reduce carbon emissions and enhance sustainability to mitigate its effect on climate change.”
For Gevo, the agreement is an important step in its efforts to develop a large-scale hydrocarbon facility that is expected to have production capacity of approximately 10-12 million gallons per year, from which SAJF would be supplied to Avfuel.
Patrick Gruber, CEO at Gevo, said, “We are pleased to have a customer and partner like Avfuel. Avfuel has tremendous reach with 650-plus Avfuel-branded locations and 3,000-plus fueling locations worldwide. We appreciate its vision and leadership in working with us to bring a friendlier and more sustainable fuel to the market place.”
