California FBO Receives First Load Of Sustainable Aviation Fuel

California’s ACI Jet is the latest FBO operator to offer sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to its customers, having received a 7,300-gallon load of the fuel this week at its facility at John Wayne-Orange County Airport. The fuel was supplied by Avfuel, which blends concentrated SAF with standard petroleum-based jet-A. ACI expects to receive another 7,300-gallon load, which will be split between the company's headquarters at San Luis County Regional Airport and its Paso Robles Municipal Airport location.

“Don’t we all breathe the same air?”

The nearly 15,000 gallons of SAF placed in the FBO’s general fuel storage tanks, and available to all customers, will result in a net four metric ton reduction in CO2 emissions.

“Despite the hardships aviation and our world have endured these past many months, we continue to look ahead to a brighter, cleaner future with the use of these sustainable products,” said Avfuel vice president of sales Mark Haynes. “These demonstration days are one more important step forward for our world’s wellness.”
