Gevo Inc., a sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) producer, has announced it has supplied SAF to further support carbon neutrality goals in the aviation industry.
Gevo's customer and global fuel supplier, Avfuel Corporation, delivered SAF to Banyan Air Service (KFXE) in Fort Lauderdale, Florida,US, where they stated that the fuel accounts for a 2 t reduction in lifecycle CO2 emissions, furthering sustainability goals for Banyan Air Service and Avfuel. The fuel was allotted to operators via commitments prior to its delivery.
To supply the fuel, Avfuel acquires a concentrated delivery of SAF from Gevo and blends it with petroleum-based jet fuel. This mixture is then tested for fuel quality and to ensure it meets all standards associated with jet fuel.
The product has a net benefit to the environment across its lifecycle. Created from corn starch, for every one million gal. of the concentrated SAF that is produced, approximately 10 million lb of animal feed and protein is sold into the food chain, and the final jet fuel product burns cleaner, reducing carbon emissions released into the atmosphere.
