Avfuel Showcases Sustainable Alternative Jet Fuel at SDC2019
SAN ANTONIO, Texas. / January 29, 2019 / GENERAL AVIATION NEWS – Avfuel Corporation’s keeping the focus on fuel at the 2019 NBAA Schedulers & Dispatchers Conference with booth space (number 1437) dedicated to conversations on sustainable alternative jet fuel—the company’s major focus throughout 2018 and beyond.
The company enters the conference with SAJF at the top of its mind after a successful “flying green” day at the Van Nuys airport on January 17. This was the first time sustainable alternative jet fuel became available to operators at a business aviation airport and the first time the fuel supplier launched the new SAJF product. During the event, the airport served approximately 250 arrival and departure turbine operations.
“It was an exciting event,” said Keith Sawyer, Avfuel’s manager of alternative fuels. “Our team was eager to help facilitate the supply needs for the day and make our new product available to operators for a limited time. We’ve worked extensively on the logistics of procuring SAJF, and how to properly blend it, test it and store it, so to see it put into use was a major milestone.”
To better educate flight departments on sustainable alternative jet fuel, Sawyer will be available to discuss SAJF in the dedicated booth at SDC2019.
“Having a committed space to facilitate these important conversations on SAJF is imperitive to continuing our progress on this effort,” said Sawyer. “We’re keen to discuss the product with attendees, educate them on the product and its viability for use, and hope to walk away with some commitments.”
These commitments, notes Sawyer, are imperitive to the SAJF mission. Currently, the main obstacle to the widespread adoption of the product is its availability. There currently isn’t enough SAJF being produced to serve the entire aviation industry. Through commitments, Avfuel is able to more accurately share product demand with producers, helping to encourage increased output of the SAJF product.
Attendees are encouraged to stop by the SAJF booth (number 1437) to speak with Sawyer about sustainable alternative jet fuel and visit the Avfuel Aisles to network with the fuel supplier’s co-exhibiting branded FBOs. Avfuel will also once again be hosting its popular “Fuel You Style” shopping promotion. Schedulers and dispatchers can stop by Avfuel booth number 1434 to pick up a playing card.
