Boeing has agreed to purchase Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel™ supplied by EPIC Fuels, Signature Aviation and Avfuel to power its US commercial operations through 2023.
These fuel purchases more than double Boeing's SAF procurement from last year. Neste’s SAF will be blended with conventional jet fuel at a 30/70 ratio to produce 5.6 million gallons of blended SAF.
“As one of the top aircraft manufacturers in the world, Boeing is sending a clear message to the entire aviation industry through this purchase that SAF is a key solution to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from flying,” said Michael Sargeant, vice president Americas, renewable aviation at Neste.
“We are proud to be a part of this collaboration along with our partners EPIC Fuels, Signature Aviation and Avfuel.”
EPIC Fuels, Signature and Avfuel will supply blended SAF for Boeing’s ecoDemonstrator program and the company’s fuel storage in Washington state and South Carolina. Additionally, EPIC Fuels and Signature will supply blended SAF for generating emissions reduction benefits for Boeing to allocate for company operations including Dreamlifter and executive flights, and commercial airplane deliveries.
In 2021, Boeing committed to deliver its commercial airplanes capable and certified to fly on 100% SAF by 2030.
