Air bp has announced its first sale of ISCC PLUS certified sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) in Spain.
Air bp’s aviation customer NetJets Europe became the first to purchase the fuel earlier in the summer.
The SAF is supplied locally from bp’s Castellon refinery and available across the Air bp network in Spain.
Waste based sustainable feedstocks is procured by the refinery and co-processed (together with fossil fuel), producing synthetic low carbon fuel.
SAF can then be certified using International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC) PLUS procedures.
Co-processing is a key step in replacing fossil fuel with renewable feedstock within refineries and helping to advance the decarbonisation of transport including aviation.
The ISCC PLUS certified SAF has an attributed saving of around 80% carbon emissions over its lifecycle compared with conventional jet fuel it replaces.
This is the first time that Air bp has sold SAF using the ISCC PLUScertified method.
Christian Luwisch, NetJets Europe, executive director, said: “We are proud to collaborate with Air bp to supply SAF for NetJets’ aircraft in Europe. This new partnership is an important next step in our ongoing commitment to reduce the environmental footprint of our company.”
Martin Thomsen, CEO, Air bp, added: “We are excited to announce our first sale of SAF in Spain, which opens up new supply opportunities in an important aviation market.
“We are also delighted to have the support of our customer, NetJets Europe, which demonstrates their willingness to invest in SAF to help reduce carbon emissions. We hope this announcement will encourage more customers to purchase SAF in Spain.”
