Moving forward to create an efficient, continuous supply of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) in the United States and beyond, Neste continues to provide Avfuel with SAF in volumes able to meet the growing demands of its customers in 2023, while Avfuel continues as a branded SAF distributor for Neste, selling its product under the brand name Neste MY Sustainable Aviation FuelTM.
Since the collaboration began in 2021, Neste MY Sustainable Aviation FuelTM has helped original equipment manufacturers, corporate flight departments, fractional and commercial airlines, and fixed base operators reduce carbon emissions, with the SAF being delivered to 13 FBOs that hold consistent inventory of the fuel.
While the geographic availability of SAF molecules continues to expand, Avfuel has created a book-and-claim program to help increase availability of the fuel’s emissions reduction benefits, and supplied SAF to high-profile events, both helping to spur greater demand.
With one of the highest average blend ratios available in business aviation to date (30/70 SAF to petroleum-based jet fuel), each truckload of Neste MY SAF from Avfuel reduces carbon emissions by 19 metric tons across its lifecycle.
SAF is the most effective way to reduce the carbon footprint of air travel. Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel can reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by up to 80%* compared to fossil jet fuel if used in its neat, concentrated form. It is a today solution, commercially available and in use worldwide.
Neste MY SAF is made from sustainably sourced, 100% renewable waste and residue raw materials—such as used cooking oil. It is a fully approved drop-in fuel that, once blended with petroleum jet fuel, meets ASTM D-1655 specification for conventional jet fuel and performance standards under all operating conditions. This makes Neste MY SAF an optimum solution to directly reduce greenhouse gas emissions from air travel, requiring no new investments, modifications or changes to aircraft, fuel distribution procedures or airport fuel storage tanks.
