Avfuel delivered its first shipment of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) on request from a corporate flight department last week. September 15, 2020, 4:33 PMAvfuel has delivered its first shipment of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) on request from a corporate flight department. Wilmington, Delaware-based agriculture technology company Corteva Agriscience, as part of its growing sustainability platform, inquired if Avfuel could make SAF available at its home base of New Castle Airport (ILG), according to Craig Hanlon, the company’s director of aviation. The fuel provider agreed and Corteva purchased an entire shipment of blended SAF-jet-A, which was delivered to the Atlantic Aviation FBO there, marking its first such delivery, following numerous other demonstrations involving FBOs, airports, OEMs, and charter operators. Atlantic conducts the into-plane fueling for Corteva, and the drop-in renewable fuel shipment was placed into Atlantic’s fuel farm for use by the airport’s general aviation clients, while Corteva received the environmental credits. The shipment represents a lifecycle savings of two metric tons of CO2 emissions over conventional jet fuel. Hanlon told AIN that the delivery shows that operators want SAF and that the supply chain works to provide it. “It’s indicative of the continued interests we’re seeing in sustainability measures throughout business aviation,” agreed Jonathan Boyle, Avfuel’s v-p of contract fuel. “We are appreciative of the Atlantic Aviation team and our loyal customer for their collaboration in this important demonstration. Avfuel is proud to partner with these operations as a step toward making sustainable aviation fuel more attainable.” Business Aviation
