AvFuel to make Gevo aviation biofuel available at Jackson Hole airport demonstration event

August 27, 2019 |

In Wyoming, in an effort to further business aviation’s carbon neutrality goals, Avfuel will make sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) available to operators fueling at Jackson Hole Aviation on September 3 and 4.

For the event, Avfuel will supply 7,300 gallons of SAF to the FBO to fuel operators flying in and out of the airfield during the demonstration days.

This SAF demonstration is held in conjunction with the airport’s Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for its new underground stormwater detention and filtration system on September 3. The new system will capture stormwater runoff from both the operational and public areas of the airport, preserving the land and environment surrounding the airport, making for a unique, eco-focused event.

Avfuel sources it concentrated SAF from Gevo, Inc., and blends it with petroleum-based jet fuel. This mixture is then tested for fuel quality and to ensure it meets ASTM D1655 standards. The product has a net benefit to the environment across its lifecycle. Created from corn starch, for every one million gallons of the concentrated SAF that is produced, approximately 20 million pounds 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.
