Ross Aviation, in partnership with fuel supplier, Avfuel Corporation, is now offering customers sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at its Palm Springs/Thermal, California, US, location.
The announcement comes ahead of Ross Aviation welcoming traffic to Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport when the PGA TOUR comes to La Quinta on 20 January 2022.
Having accepted its first load of SAF on 14 January 2022, Ross Aviation (KTRM) will continue to receive a consistent supply of Neste MY Sustainable Aviation FuelTM from Avfuel to help its customers significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. As additional supply becomes available, Avfuel will collaborate with Ross Aviation to expand SAF’s availability to the company’s other 18 FBO locations, system-wide.
SAF is the most effective way to reduce a flight’s carbon footprint. To quantify its benefit, each truckload (approximately 8000 gal) of SAF Avfuel supplies to the FBO provides a 19 t reduction in carbon emissions over its life cycle. This provides the same climate benefit as reducing the emissions from 4.1 passenger vehicles to zero over the course of a year.
In the future, SAF could deliver up to 80% less greenhouse gas emissions over its life cycle vs traditional jet fuel if used in its neat, concentrated form.
Neste MY SAF is made from sustainably sourced, renewable waste and residue 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 aircraft, requiring no new investments, modifications or changes to the aircraft, fuel distribution procedures or airport fuel storage tanks.
