avfuel delivers first sustainable aviation fuel to bombardier
November 27, 2019
Avfuel is providing Bombardier with an inaugural shipment of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to support the company’s long-standing commitment toward the environment. This aligns with Avfuel’s ongoing efforts to work with leading original equipment manufacturers on sustainability efforts.
In total, Avfuel supplied 7,300 gallons (27,600 liters) of SAF to Bombardier to fuel its new customer aircraft deliveries. In total, the sustainable product provided a two metric ton reduction in life cycle CO2 emissions.
“Working with leading OEMs, like Bombardier, is an opportunity for Avfuel and business aviation as a whole to meet sustainability goals,” said C.R. Sincock, executive vice president for Avfuel. “We are appreciative of the Bombardier team for its willingness to participate in this initiative, for its professionalism in working with Avfuel on the logistics, and for the work it’s doing on green initiatives.”
Supply of SAF continues to be the most challenging hurdle to bringing the product to market on a commercial scale. As such, Avfuel hopes raising awareness through initiatives such as this will help inspire commitments by operators to use the product. By creating the demand, Avfuel’s aim is to encourage further production for greater sustainable representation in the fuel supply chain.
