Avfuel Corporation marks a new milestone in its SAF supply journey, expanding its supply globally to three French airports. 

With SAF supply agreements at Paris Le Bourget Airport (LBG), Bordeaux-Mérignac Airport (BOD) and Clermont-Ferrand Auvergne Airport (CFE), operators can now choose to fuel in a way that significantly reduces their flight’s lifecycle carbon emissions. Avfuel’s customers can consistently purchase SAF at all three locations via its Avfuel Contract Fuel program. 

The provision of SAF in France came just ahead of EBACE, supplementing the convention’s immense focus on sustainable aviation operations. It also provides an important opportunity for operators across the globe to fuel smarter and cleaner when travelling for the 2024 Olympics in Paris. 

Avfuel’s SAF supply, produced in France, averages a blend ratio of 30% SAF to 70% traditional jet fuel. Made from a tallow feedstock, like used cooking oils, the fuel in its concentrated form provides up to a 90% reduction in carbon emissions across its lifecycle. This is comparable to Avfuel’s SAF supply in the U.S., which means a 4,000-litre uplift of the blend in a large business jet would create approximately a 2.5 metric ton reduction in carbon emissions. That reduction provides the same environmental benefit as recycling 109 bags of waste instead of placing them in a landfill.  

Avfuel’s SAF availability in France is in addition to consistent supply at 17 airports and FBOs in the United States, along with robust supply to numerous OEMs and corporate flight departments.
