World Fuel Services is now an authorized distributor of Neste-produced sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and its first delivery of Neste's fuel has arrived at Paris Le Bourget Airport, the company announced yesterday. Neste's MY SAF, which is derived from 100 percent renewable and sustainable waste such as cooking oil and animal fat, can reduce lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80 percent compared to fossil fuels.
"World Fuel is committed to the industry's goal of reducing carbon emissions by 50 percent. Working together with Neste to expand the global supply chain of SAF furthers that commitment," said Duncan Storey, the v-p of supply aviation for Europe at World Fuel Services. "We will continue to invest in creating innovative solutions and expanding renewable and lower-emission fuels and energy offerings."
A truck delivered approximately 34,000 liters (9,000 gallons) of SAF to Le Bourget Airport earlier this month and World Fuel made its first sale there on June 15, a company representative told AIN. The fuel was processed in Benelux and delivered to World Fuel's segregated fuel farm at Le Bourget. World Fuel said the fuel blend available at the Paris airport will contain between 30 percent and 40 percent SAF, and customers can purchase the fuel by approaching the company directly via its usual sales channels.
