Aviation firm Jetex has started offering sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) derived from used cooking oil produced by TotalEnergies at Jetex Le Bourget, Paris.

SAF provides a reduction of up to 90% in carbon emissions over the lifecycle of the fuel compared to traditional jet fuel and complies with RED sustainability criteria. Fuelling at Jetex Le Bourget in Paris is facilitated by a 100% electric refuelling truck, which further reduces the operation’s carbon footprint.

“We take pride in being part of the aviation community that has yet again proven to be accountable and responsible, taking a positive step towards reducing carbon emissions,” said Sufiyan Asif, director of fuel at Jetex.

“Jetex has reiterated its stance towards this goal by making it easier for customers to avail SAF at one of its fixed-base operator bases at Paris Le Bourget.

“As a one-stop-shop aviation service provider, we are pleased to be able to include SAF arrangements as part of our world-class services for customers looking to meet the challenge of carbon neutrality.”

Progressing the deployment of SAF is crucial to decarbonising the aviation industry. According to the International Air Transport Association, more than 100 million litres of SAF will be produced in 2021. The use of SAF is a major focus for Jetex and forms part of its commitment to achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
