  • Gevo’s customer and global fuel supplier, Avfuel Corporation, delivered sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to the Leading Edge Jet Centre.

    A demonstrative load of SAF was transported to the fixed-base operator’s (FBO) Seattle facility. The company is a provider of business aviation services throughout the Pacific north-west.

    The delivery marks the first load of SAF for a FBO at the King County International Airport – Boeing Field for resale to its customers. It also marked Avfuel’s entry to SAF deliveries in Washington state.

    “I want to congratulate Avfuel and Leading Edge Jet Centre for making progress towards a cleaner future,” stated Patrick Gruber, chief executive officer of Gevo. “We look forward to growing our business relationship and helping to educate aircraft operators and owners that products exist that burn cleaner and reduce carbon emission.”

    Gevo is commercialising the next generation of jet fuel, petrol and diesel fuel with the potential to achieve zero carbon emissions and address the market need of reducing greenhouse gas emissions with sustainable alternatives.

    Gevo uses low-carbon renewable resource-based carbohydrates as raw materials, and is in an advanced state of developing renewable electricity and renewable natural gas for use in production processes.
