Neste has delivered over 500,000 gallons (1,500 metric tons) of Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel™ to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
This SAF delivery was made possible by a close cooperation with LAXFUEL, the consortium of the airlines operating at LAX providing the jet fuel supply infrastructure for the planes at the airport. It is the first time SAF is delivered into LAXFUEL’s supply infrastructure using barges for transport.
The fuel delivery significantly increases the availability and accessibility of sustainable aviation fuel at one of the busiest international airports and aviation hubs in the US, offering airlines and passengers a solution to travel more sustainably with reduced greenhouse gas emissions from air travel.
This partnership marks the first time that SAF is being delivered as a ready-made fuel blend into the existing fuelling infrastructure in large volumes at LAX.
John Trozzo, chairman of LAXFUEL Corporation, said: “Sustainable aviation fuel is the fastest, most effective means we have to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from air travel.
“We now have the means to supply this low-emission fuel in larger volumes not only to the airlines flying from LAX but also to other airports in the region serviced by the broader fuel infrastructure managed by LAXFUEL in California.
“This partnership with Neste proves that we have the capability to immediately implement this fuel as a low-carbon solution. It also provides a sound basis for scaling up future deliveries to airlines.”
Chris Cooper, president of Neste US, said: “Neste is fully committed to supporting the decarbonisation of aviation. Our company has been at the forefront of accelerating the availability of SAF, and this achievement together with LAXFUEL shows how we are taking concrete steps towards a more sustainable future for aviation. Recognised as one of the most visited states in the US, California has a huge demand for air travel. By offering SAF to the state’s busiest airport, we are enabling passengers who travel to and from California to lower their carbon footprint while enjoying the benefits of flying.”
