The Colonial Pipeline fuel network will soon begin shipping sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) for the first time as more airlines aim to meet their greenhouse gas emissions goals.
Colonial, which is the main artery of the US fuel supply from the south to the east coast, said that it has added the ability to transport SAF and will accept customer nominations to ship the fuel on its system.
With this change, shippers can nominate jet fuel that includes SAF from any Colonial origin point to any Colonial destination, including airports, along Colonial's 5,500-mile system, reported S&P Global.
"Colonial Pipeline is excited to provide this new service to meet our customers' evolving need for renewable fuels," said Aaron Smith, Colonial business development manager, in a statement.
"We are ideally situated to safely and efficiently supply fuel with direct connections to seven East Coast international airports, along with transport connections to other large and mid-market airports."
Colonial currently delivers aviation fuel directly to Hartsfield Jackson International Airport in Atlanta, Georgia, Washington Dulles International Airport in Dulles, Virginia, and five other airports in Tennessee, North Carolina and Maryland.
Products moved on the Colonial system also indirectly serve airports in eight other metropolitan areas in the US Gulf coast and Atlantic coast.
