Switzerland-based aviation fuel supplier Valcora has launched a dedicated biofuel program at EBACE 2018 after a successful first year of operations.
Since launch at EBACE 2017, Valcora has more than doubled its team, opened a Singapore office, and relocated its Geneva offices to accommodate future growth.
Valcora has expanded the initial home-based team to a range of fuel professionals based across its network of Geneva, Dublin, and Singapore offices. Business development has been driven by customers from Europe, China and Australia.
As part of the new program launch, new and existing Valcora card holders can purchase biojet fuel through the online platform at selected airports.
The Be Smart, Fly Bio initiative aims to encourage operators to switch to biojet fuel where available, and forms part of the company’s wider commitment to support the aviation industry’s move toward carbon neutral growth.
Daniel Coetzer, CEO at Valcora, said, “Our BioFuel program makes uplifting biojet from our growing network of suppliers as easy as possible. The system will also, where appropriate, automatically calculate carbon offsetting, which reduces operational administration.
“With the CORSIA initiative just around the corner we want to make sure we play a part in making the planet a better place.”
